This review almost didn't exist. Last year my planning was pretty full each month and a stay on Crete led me to skip a few pages in a certain publisher’s catalogue. Luckily I was later on convinced that it was “all about the review itself and not the date it was published”. That means you’ll get to read an article on The Star Tarot deck after all and myself would not have wanted to miss it for the world!

Imagine you love a certain card system and basically having only just one or two decks to read with. Now, there are hundreds if not thousands of cartomancers doing that on purpose - but if you were one of them you would not be on a review site ;-). Anyway, if you are a Kipper reader that was your reality for over a hundred years (if you started eh...young). Original Kipper was THE deck and while some designers added new material in recent hist...

If you are already a Kipper fan it is highly unlikely the release of Toni Puhle’s (a.k.a The Card Geek’s) Kipper book has eluded you. If it did, lucky you stumbled unto this review! For years information on Kipper was sparse, and even if you could find it all materials were in German - not everyone’s favourite (or 1st or even 2nd) language. The long wait for a title in English which would show not only card meanings, but a true way of getting ...

A good vintage year, that’s what they say when a particular year of harvesting grapes produced many a good & potentially classic wine. I would almost say that 2017 could be called a good vintage year in tarot terms, with a lot of excellent decks seeing the light. No deck as marked however as Beth Seilonen’s Guardian Tarot. And if marked should get the connotation of striking and outstanding too, I

The Golden Lenormand Oracle is the newest Lenormand deck by Lo Scarabeo. The Italian publisher is known for not only daring to be original, putting multiple languages on tarot decks and LWB’s, but also for their golden layered deluxe decks. This Lenormand is exactly one of those luxurious sets and could best be described as a beautified rendition of LS’s 2013 Lenormand Oracle. (also: a mini

Silson Lenormand feels like Middle Ages
Lenormand , News / 20 January 2016

Neil Lovell, owner and designer at Malpertuis Designs Ltd., just finished his newest Lenormand deck, the Silson Lenormand. The designer of the Tyldwick Tarot created a deck that will either make you fall in love with it or (if you're more a Lenny-purist) despise the idea behind it. Lovell is no stranger to creating a Lenormand deck, but for his fifth Lenny he wanted...

Tarot Recipes | Tarot by the mouthful
Multimedia , Recommendation , Tarot / 18 January 2016

Making an exception for my Multimedia menu because I just could not get over this awesome special called Tarot by The Mouthful by The Tarot Lady and her partner in crime, tv-cook, Kyle Cherek. It's a 'had to share' and since it was originally supposed to be a multimedia thing I am going to pretend it fits here perfectly. Tarot by The Mouthful gives you very nice recipes based on the 78 cards in the Waite-Smith deck. Tarot and food? Y...

Sola-Busca Tarot by Mayer: a piece of history
Decks , Review , Tarot / 15 January 2016

It rarely happens I treat a deck with reverence. Sure, my tarot and oracle collection is worth a lot to me and I take good care of any deck. But with the Sola-Busca I had the urge to use those white cotton gloves curators of certain museums use before touching a rare, ancient, valuable object. I guess that was the first ‘warning’ this deck is not your average tarot package, but something pretty special. If you're not an avid reader, ...
