Beautiful cards, lovely book, but cheap, cheap, cheap. If you are intending to actually USE the cards, I would advise you to avoid shuffling the deck. The first time I did, the paper on the back of several cards peeled and stripped away. I paid full price for these, and am disappointed that they are already damaged due to normal use. Step it up, Vertigo!

I was really looking forward to this deck, but what a disappointment. When it arrived, the packaging itself was really beautiful, but the cards were produced on the cheap. The card stock was so thin I worried about bending the cards while shuffling. In addition, the accompanying book was printed in a font so small that I had to haul out the magnifying glass to read it! Was this just to save a few extra pages being printed?

Wish I could give this a higher review - and if it's reproduced using a higher quality card stock and a book that doesn't cheap out on pages, I will definitely re-order. Sadly, it's going back to Amazon today.

I had the pleasure of getting one of the original decks several years ago but wanted to use a smaller deck when I was out. This replica deck is of the poorest quality decks I have ever had the misfortune to handle. While the cards were shiny,new and bright right out the box 5 cards were bent,creased, and wrinkled. Also there were duplicates so I had 80 cards instead of 78 but I guess I should count that as a bonus. I would never have thought this would be the kind of quality I would get in an anniversary deck. I take my Tarot cards seriously and if you do the same please skip this deck.

::Side note::: I did not return the deck as the Universe may have felt my disappointment. My puppy found the deck and procceded to DESTROY the bag and cards beyond use.

Stop. Before going any further, ask yourself: Are you a creature of the night? Does the idea of the lights going out send you scurrying for a candle to light, or does it bring a mischievous grin to you face, and an almost vampiric sigh of, "Now we'll have some fun!" If so, then proceed onward, for the Vertigo Tarot is a splendidly dark treasure of the night.

The images in this deck are hauntingly close to Timothy Lantz' "Archeon Tarot," so much so that one must wonder if they both sprang from the same eldritch pool of nightmare horrors. Yes, that's the right word; while many of the images are adapted from comic book art and bear standard recognizable tarot symbols, they are twisted in ways that approach the abyss of Lovecraftian angst. These are not the cheap, gruesome stuff of the movie theater, but the more subtle, and through that subtlety all the more frightening, chimeras of madness touched by supernatural horror. If you like gothic decks, and particularly if you liked the "Archeon", then this deck is a must-have.

This is one case where the packaging actually enhances the atmosphere of the deck itself. When I reached into the carton to pull the box out, I noticed something strange about it. Like one of those coffins with a window, as seen in "The Serpent and the Rainbow," the beautifully designed box has a window that reveals the substantial book contained within. Now I'm not a big fan of Tarot books, but as they go, this one is quite good. There is historical information on the Tarot in general and this deck in particular, and general background information on how the deck is set up. There is the usual "Journey of the Fool" story, a myth I find somewhere between tedious and outright irritating, though perhaps insightful to some.

I have never used tarot cards before, but the Vertigo set looked like it was a very unique spin on something that has been around for a while. Though the cards are a little weak and look like they've been punched out of a sheet, there are very redeeming qualities. The artwork is not what I had expected. I had thought that the cards would feature artwork that was taken from the various comic series of Vertigo and cleaned up and added to the cards. The cards actually feature completely original artwork that strikes me as a little abstract and very creative.

Aside from the quality of the cards, the tarot set seems like a good start for anyone interested in tarot.

The quality is unbelievably poor. Think of the little peel off stickers on the sides of french fries--you know the ones, they used to have game pieces on the back? The paper stock for these cards is literally that thin. There are still tiny nubs on the edges where they punched the cards out of the paper frame.

This is a tremendously disappointing presentation of beautiful art, and a crime at full price. I am returning mine unused, as I don't trust them to hold up to even casual perusal. You're better off just buying the Dave McKean's Particle Tarot at this price.

It is a most beautiful deck. The DC characters matched with traditional Tarot arcana is wonderfully done. It can be a more difficult deck to read as it is pretty dark, and it's true that it's not the sturdiest deck made, but I'd buy it over and again. It's challenging and gorgeous - a must have if you read tarot and love DC's Vertigo universe.
