Of course these cards are beautiful, they were made by a wildly talented artist, but the weight and size of them is gorgeous also. Hefty enough for daily use but flexible and thin enough to shuffle them in one go. The book is carefully put together and easy to use. It lays out the identity of the mythological person/creature in the artwork, the meaning of the card itself and the reversal. I have a few decks and have seen many come through the store and this one remains one of the finest I’ve seen, for a super reasonable price. Great for beginners and a unique addition to any practice. Don’t forget a journal! A useful book is cool, but your reflections are what makes the whole thing worth doing.— From Ben's Picks
