The cards are matte, vibrant, and made of a sturdy cardstock material. The illustrations themselves are amazing and the artist definitely knows how to use colors in a minimalistic yet rich, dynamic way. Also, the deck & guide containers are sturdy too.
I've added pictures of all of my favorite cards from the deck (they look better in real life, trust me).
This boxed set is an incredible bargain. It is beautifully made. Within the outer protective cardboard sleeve is the large, sturdy box, which has a flap with a magnetic closure. I love that; it's so easy to open and close. A silk ribbon lifts the guidebook out, to reveal underneath the actual deck, in its own box. That box too has a silk ribbon to help you easily lift out the cards.
The guidebook is all hand lettered, and offers some excellent interpretations. They really get to the heart of the matter. Some Tarot books give so many possible meanings to the cards that they almost have no meaning at all. That has its place, because we all know that meanings shift and change depending on the individual, the other cards in the layout, etc. But it can also be refreshing to have a simple, straightforward, no-holds-barred "this is what's happening" interpretation.
This is an honest, tough-love deck, in my opinion. I don't think it's a deck I will go to when I (or a client) am feeling emotionally very fragile. It incorporates all the raw, primal, honest energy of nature-- not fluffy, airbrushed nature but blood-and-bones nature-- and you really need to be ready to hear and accept the raw truth when you use this deck. Some days I feel very drawn to use it; other days I feel I can't handle it. It's that kind of deck. But that's part of what makes it such a great deck. Reading for oneself is always hard, because we have a tendency to want to see in the cards the outcome or the meaning we desire, and so it's difficult to be objective. With this deck, you really have no choice. It's going to get right to the heart of the matter. If you're ready to face the deepest truths, this is your deck.
For that reason it's a great deck for shadow work, for working with our innermost fears and secrets. In this sense the deck can be very healing, used with journaling, meditation, etc.
The artwork is stunning and absolutely unique. Some people have likened the pip cards to the Marseille deck. I can see that, and yet they aren't really in the stylized, almost geometric patterns of the Marseille. If you study the card, there really IS a picture there, though the absence of any human figure or even an animal figure makes it more difficult to perceive. The Major Arcana are especially beautiful and evocative.
One of the most unique Tarot decks that I've seen or own.
I waited a long time to buy it, as I was put off by some of the reviews complaining about the quality of the deck, but when they arrived I found that it was an unwarranted concern for me. I use the tarot as a self-exploratory tool and do not do readings for others so, admittedly, I wouldn't know enough to be able to say whether these cards will withstand constant use. I can say, however, that upon inspection they seem just as sturdy as other decks I've used (Thoth tarot and Cosmic tarot).
I love the black and white theme with rainbow pops of color, which make this deck a visual treat. Kim Krans did an excellent job illustrating this deck and capturing the symbolism of the cards in a simple way. The Thoth tarot, by comparison, is such a complex deck and the symbolism can become overwhelming especially for those who are not entirely knowledgeable of Thelemic symbolism. On the other hand, the Wild Unknown tarot feels relatable and familiar, and is a great deck for beginners and more advanced practitioners.
