I've been reading since I was in middle school (about 9 years) and consider myself a good tarot reader though by no means an expert, but I still find myself turning to books and other sources for additional details on some cards in about 25% of my readings. However, in the dozen or so readings I have done with this deck, I have not once felt that the answers I was looking for were anywhere but in the cards and in the people at the table. This deck comes very naturally to me, in part because of its play off of the RWS which gives it a backstory you already know plus the additional information, the "new vision" that is apparent in this artwork; partially because the finely detailed artwork leaves no question of "what might that be, there?" or "what is this character doing?" and instills a sense of trust of the deck in me; and partially for reasons to which I am not privy.
I can't tell you you should buy this deck, because maybe it won't be right for you, but I can tell you it is right for me, and GOSH is it right for me.
This deck could be ok for a beginner, but I think that an experienced tarotist, especially one who has worked extensively with the RWS deck, will find this deck the most useful. The alternative perspective is interesting. Some cards don't really change much, others add a little hint or extra oomph to the traditional message while still others I think were drawn with the intent of portraying the "reversed" meaning of the card. I've been studying tarot for years now, but there were a fair number of cards that had me scratching my head. There are images added to some of them that just made me wonder what the artists were thinking or what mythology they are referencing. This isn't a problem, but it is a little confusing. I tried to track down a guidebook to explain the additional imagery and the artist's intent, but the guidebooks for this deck appear to be prohibitively expensive for some reason, which is why I'd recommend a kit.
Openness and flexibility in the reader is Paramount. That is why I find some reviews missing the point of this deck. It is Not a great deck for a newcomer, unless you "get it" if you are someone who can read and or scry in a cloud a fire tea leaves, than this deck is just fine to start with. If you need a border understanding of what you are doing the original version is much better. "The New Vision" deck may well be better called "The New Perspective" deck. It as ALL decks are just tools to open up to possability and probability and creativity from within ourselves. It is far to easy to get Locked in on an image and say "this means that". New art, new interpretations, all help make reading a more fluid free form natural experience.
Would buy again, already recommend to everyone!!!
