The accompanying book, by the occultist Akron, is so full of insight, mostly of an uncomfortable nature, that it is worth reading alone even if one didn't like the artwork. The book contains nine very powerful tarot spreads, complete with commentary. I also like the idea of different meanings given predicated on the gender of the querent. The sourness I felt by seeing older paintings with tarot names underneath is countered by the first-rate scholarship of the book.

Even more tantalizing, the accompanying book contains sketches of designs for the cards that are better thought out for tarot than what is provided on the actual cards. Giger’s artwork is recognizable for it’s photorealistic style of things that don’t exist. But he often works out compositions in a rather loose, sketchy style. These are done with thick grease pencils. I can see in these rather loose and sloppy works the embryonic stages of powerful tarot cards. Too bad that these weren’t realized for the deck.

This deck is not for everyone. Giger's paintings are often very disturbing, very ugly and shocking. This is the only deck I have that comes with a warning, and Akron and Giger mean it.

“This is not a tarot book in the usual sense. It has not been written for people who seek the truth without questioning themselves, or hide behind the mask of the "positive." Nor is it for those who are addicted to the quest for enlightenment, believing they have long overcome the darkness within themselves and only looking for (and finding it) in others. As the ultimate "Shadow Tarot," the cards and book provide a panoramic view of the psychological and mental underworld. They reveal that the true darkness lies in repressing the shadow- by "striving for the light." The search for enlightenment is actually like an addiction: The drug that enslaves us is shadow itself! So this book is intended for people who first want to discover why they should seek the truth before they try to find this truth.”

So, who is this deck for? This deck can be used as a tool to delve into uncomfortable aspects of one’s psyche. It would probably be inappropriate for questions like, “Will I get that big promotion?” Used sparingly, and with careful preparation, this could be a useful tool in the tarot reader’s toolbox.
