In the early 1990s, at a party, someone put a tarot deck in Barbara's hands; she's held on tightly ever since. Tarot provides just enough structure so that we don't get lost as we explore the mysteries, plumb our dark corners, and locate our North Stars.

Format: Cards
This beautifully illustrated tarot is the creation of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. The imagery in these cards exudes an ethereal quality like no other tarot that I have ever seen. In spite of the superb imagery, this deck doesn't depart much from the Rider Tarot tradition.

These cards are bordered in gray; numbered and labeled at the bottom. The back of these cards is reversible, showing the classical depiction of a sun surrounded by an ornate ring which gives out an aura over a purple-black and starry space.

The Major Arcana are numbered with roman numerals. Labeled with the standard naming convention from the Rider Tarot, these cards certainly follow this tradition in a spectacular way. For example, The Tower shows a city, and within the city a tree stand taller than anything. At the top of the tree there is a tower being struck down by lighting.

However, I thought that the superb ethereal imagery could have inspired, and easily justified, a name change of a few of the Major Arcana. For example, Death shows a Phoenix like creature perching on a tree, while the Hierophant shows an Ent like creature sitting on the branch.

The suits on the Minor Arcana (swords, wands, cups and pentacles) corresponding element (air, fire, water and earth) are subtly integrated within the scenery of the cards. The court cards follow the standard naming convention of Page, Knight, Queen and King. My favorite cards from the court must be Knights, with the Knight of Swords riding a swan, the Knight of Wands riding a horned lion, the Knight of Cups riding an unicorn on high surf, and the Knight of Pentacles riding a earth Dragon.

Overall, I am very satisfied with this deck. This deck comes with a Little White Book.

This is definitely one of the most beautiful tarot decks I've ever seen. I would definitely recommend it. However, it may be a good idea to buy the set that comes with the paperback and (so I've heard) a more durable box. My only two complaints are that I've only had this for a week and only took it out of the box (and put it back in) maybe six times and the corners of the box are already dying on me. My other complaint is that the little booklet that comes with the cards doesn't fully explain most of them, probably so that you buy the book.

The booklet does have instructions for the beginner on three spreads, which I enjoyed very much since I'd never seen any of them. Once again, there are faults with this item, but it's definitely worth the money. The cards are what really matter anyway, right?

These cards are my everything. I don't go anywhere without them. I've been reading cards for quite some time and there is nothing as calming as the stories in this artwork. They're very easy to handle, the artwork is very similar to traditional tarot and offers a beautiful entrance into the world of Tarot.
I'd suggest for beginners and experts.

This deck exceeded my expectations. For years I had been searching for that perfect deck that is both stunning and substantial (beauty and brains?) but to no avail. Just when I was about to give up, I come across this one and wow! It's too precious for words. Everything fits perfectly. If you're considering buying this but aren't sure, go right ahead. You won't regret it.

I have owned at least one tarot deck for over a decade, and this is my third deck. That being said, as recently as a few months ago I could give the meanings for less than half a dozen cards. The two decks I got first were simply not intuitive, they forced me to constantly consult the Little White Book. I realized that if I wanted to learn, I had to get something easier to read, something that calls more to me.

Enter Shadowscapes. When I glimpsed the fuzzy sample images on Aeclectic it was love at first sight. I delighted in the availability of every piece of art on Ms. Law's website, poring through the pages and drinking in the fantasy worlds she had painstakingly created. I couldn't own a copy soon enough!

My best friend didn't take long to buy this for me, insisting he give it as a gift, though he wasn't sure why. When I had the deck in my hands, complaints about card thickness and size seemed silly. The cards are the same thickness as my US Games Lord of the Rings deck, and thicker than my Lo Scarabeo Dragons deck. The full thickness is approximately one inch, but the cards feel like they won't bend at the slightest breeze. If you're worried, don't riffle your tarot deck.

As for the size, yes, there are small details. Yes, they can be difficult to see. Use them as an excuse to lose yourself in the cards! Each card is a portal to a rich, vibrant world of dancing faeries and hidden dryads. The subject of each card pulls you in and leads you through a story. Some of my favorites include the playful leaping river of foxes the Five of Wands must wade through, the lock and key just within reach of the chained woman beneath the hooves of the Devil, and the delightful innocence of the Six of Cups' tea party.
