Tarot of Bones | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 6 July 2017

It is always great to be able to review a deck that shows the amount of work the designer has put into it and that also promises to be different than others…but still a tarot.
The Tarot of Bones is a combination of tarot structure and bone divination. According to its designer “a different kind of beast”.  Curious, I ‘cast the lot’, and here’s my conclusion.

Decks , Review , Tarot / 19 March 2017

You always needed to bring a big bucket of cash if you wanted the (OOP) Bonefire Tarot to become yours. Luckily, that’s no longer necessary. Schiffer recently published the first, very successful deck by Gabi Angus-West in a mass market edition and it is *that* Bonefire Tarot that has…

Starlight Dragon Tarot | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 12 November 2016

October 2016 saw the release of another innovative deck, by Nora Huszka & Steph Engert.

Decks , Review , Tarot / 3 July 2016

The Tarot of Dreams was Ciro Marchetti’s second deck and is still one of his most popular. But as it goes with self-publishing decks not everyone is able to ‘snatch’ one away due to pricing or limited editions.

And specifically that deck, the mass-market Tarot of Dreams, is what this review will be all about.

Sneak Peek: Anna K Lenormand
Lenormand , News , Sneak peek / 20 May 2016

When I say Anna K Tarot most readers will at least have heard of this deck. It is a colorful tarot, quite faithful to the Waite-Smith system, but with her own artistic twist. It seems the Austrian artist is going in a similar direction with her newest project. Not a Tarot, but -surprise – a Lenormand. Just as colorful and true to her work. On her site there are already a several examples to be seen and I really like the fact it is on the one hand very recognizable as a Lenormand, but on the other still something new in style. This one is vibrant, with a hint of (older) children’s book illustrations and a big dose of realism. Realistic I mean, look at that horse in the Rider for example! It is like I can feel his hide. Some of the cards have the reality of a saturated photograph and that is a good thing for a divination tool (Mountain!) like Lenormand. IMHO, of course. I have been looking for a Lenormand that I could connect with. I currently have only two. A no.1941 Piatnik – not clicking. And one that is actually not a true Lenormand. So,…
