I am very proud that Llewellyn has published The Robin Wood Tarot. It is truly rare for a deck to be both beautifully artistic and spiritually meaningful, but artist Robin Wood has created a deck that is both. The result is so beautiful, that you could be happy framing the cards and just looking at them. But it is also so meaningful that your Tarot readings will be deeper, more insightful, and have more impact than ever before.
The art on these cards is more than just beautiful, it is breathtaking. The people on the cards are filled with life and expression. They quickly become your friends and you feel like you could almost walk into the cards and talk with their depicted characters. This makes The Robin Wood Tarot ideal for people who meditate by working with the cards.
The accompanying fifty-six page booklet gives the meanings for each card. For ace through ten of each suit, it gives a word or short phrase to help you memorize the meaning. You may want to get two copies of this deck. On one you can write these meanings. Use this deck for learning the cards. Then use another deck to give readings for others. This is the ideal beginners' Tarot.
But it's for more experienced Tarot readers, too. It took Robin Wood almost a decade to come up with these images. You can add her insights to your interpretations, giving you greater depth in your readings than ever before.
If you have any interest in the Tarot, this deck is a must.

Although I wasn't sure what the kit and packaging would look like (sometimes a lot gets lost... read this article
