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.
The colors are beautiful; the darks look really solid and the colors really pop out. Overall this deck has a pleasant and serene energy to it that makes it my favorite deck to read with.
The artwork is gorgeous. It's just lovely. This was pretty much my first tarot deck (I have the Thoth deck, got it years ago but never really liked it or used it so I don't count it). I am so glad I got it.
The cards are intuitive and once you get used to them you start seeing hidden meanings and symbols in the cards that aren't mentioned in the included book. I also love that there's no people in this deck, it's all animals, so it feels very in tune with the natural world.
The card stock is nice, I love the matte finish! My only complaint is that the deck doesn't fan out very well, the cards kinda clump together in groups of 3-5 and stair step, so it doesn't make for an attractive (or functional) fan. Perhaps it just needs to get broken in and handled though, idk...
But that's the only drawback I've found, I can't recommend this deck enough!! I was gushing over it so much the other day that a friend of mine decided to get it! If you like what you see, get it! You won't regret it!
