Beautifully researched, designed and printed, the Tarot of Prague is one for everyone's collection. -- Solandia, Aeclectic Tarot
I can't recommend buying the deck (with the book!) strongly enough. You won't regret it. -- Diane Wilkes, Tarot Passages
a Prague of the readers own mind, all filled with myth, with history, and with magic. -- Lee Bursten, Tarot Passages
my favorite tarot deck, and it isn't simply for reason of emotion, intuition, or the more literal ... but for all. -- Nellie Levine, Tarot Insights
From the Author
When we designed The Tarot of Prague the most important thing to us was to achieve a deck that not only looks good, but that also reads well. Because of this we took great care to incorporate symbols that convey the traditional meaning of each card with clarity depth, and often with a little wit too.
The deck is intended to be usable "out of the box" by anyone familiar with the Rider Waite Smith system of Tarot, but at the same time it has enough layers of meaning to offer fresh insights to the experienced reader.
Enjoy this deck and book, we hope they will challenge the imagination, but also simply give a great deal of pleasure and use.

I have to say this is one of the best presentations for the tarot ever! The box is beautiful, the cardstock is heavier than most, and the accompaning book is done like a long lost magical sourcebook! Surely a collectors item as well as an important addition to the entire history of the tarot.
I have seen other collage decks and liked them, Cosmic tribe and the Tarot de Paris. I really love this one! It uses images that are found within the city and fit into the very essence of the tarot system. The Wheel of Fortune contains images from the clock tower that is a symbol of the city itself. I almost need a magnifying glass to see the detailing here.
There are no modern New Age themes used at all here. Technology is absent altogether. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I feel Prague is timeless! The meanings of the cards themselves have a very "old world" feel to them. Many seeming like postcards from the city itself.
All of the traditional symbols that one would expect from a great Tarot are here. The standard Rider-Waite system is employed. There is a definite "Bohemian" accent here. This would be the deck one would expect to see in a Gypsy wagon or Alchemist house. I am very proud to have this deck in my personal possession. Luck as well, for each set is numbered in an addition of 3000.
many times - one person I know talked about loving hers so much
I finally took the bait & ordered a set - what a pleasant surprise
I totally love this set - the cards - the book is excellent
I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves Tarot & like
me you may just get such a pleasant surprise & totally love it
Hats off to the Authors who did an A1 job on this set
The only flaw I find with this tarot is the quality of the paper in the handbook. Its unique style and beauty still makes it a wonderful purchase, a real find for the collector.
