About the Author
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.
Barbara has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. She's published a number of books on tarot, including Tarot for Beginners, Tarot Spreads, The Steampunk Tarot, The Gilded Tarot, The Mystic Dreamer Tarot, and Tarot of the Hidden Realm. Writing is solitary work and is relieved by teaching tarot at conferences around the world. Barbara also loves working directly with clients, helping them uncover guidance and insight in the cards.

Here is a peek at the cards and a few words about the set. (9:44) I hope you enjoy looking at the deck!
The Steampunk Tarot is one of my favorite tarot acquisitions in a long while. It stretches my tarot muscle in a different way. This deck is so easy for me to read with. It also helped me get over a tarot block I was experiencing.
Before I received this deck, I thought maybe it was going to be just another pretty deck. I thought the images were gorgeous when I viewed them online, but I didn't really see how they could translate in a reading. I was WRONG! This is a very chatty deck that will surprise you!
The companion book by Barbara Moore is one of the best companion books I have read. It is like sitting down with a dear friend and discussing tarot. More than that, it is like sitting down with a tarot expert and having her explain her insight into each card. It is worth reading from cover to cover. The spreads are great and my favorite is the reworked horseshoe spread.
Anyone who is a fan of steampunk, the scifi genre, and who reads intuitively will appreciate this deck. I can see this deck having a wider appeal to many types of tarot readers and querents. Those who appreciate fashion, a sense of adventure, a deck that tells a story ... this deck travels down many roads.
So far my favorite deck of 2012. This is one of those surprise decks that will catch you offguard after you receive it, in its reading ability. You will be very pleased that you chose this one!
P.S.: I don't like to have them in the satin bags.
The book is beautiful as well with images of the card and their descriptions. Just reading the introduction you can tell how much work and effort has been put into this. I would highly reccomend this for any beginner who is into the sci fi and steampunk Victorian look.
The book itself has some much information that helps me into easily begin this journey. Barbara Moore describes the methods she uses and other methods to read the cards and preparation before reading them. I've also checked the prices on the items and trust me you're getting a huge deal buying them here, the recommended price is $28.95 here in the U.S. and the book alone is $14.95. So you'll be getting the cards and book for a beautiful price as well.
The deck itself is richly illustrated, and far more than just a novelty piece to collect. Each card is a fantastic new interpretation of an old system, but because it's Steampunk, the designs still maintain the old feel, rather than a new-age or alien feel that you may see in other decks.
The book which comes with the deck is extremely insightful, and as many others have noted, is written like the author is just a friend chatting with you over tea.
I am 100% fascinated and satisfied by this purchase. Highly recommended for beginners, as well as others who already read and are looking to connect with an interesting new deck.
