deck for novice and seasoned readers alike. Accomplished artist Mary Hanson-Roberts' primary goal appears to have been to provide an aesthetically pleasing, manageable deck that is a very faithful rendition of the Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) system. Toward that end, her use of colored pencil, printed on high-quality plastic-coated card stock, provides a deck is quite durable with colors that are quite vivid without becoming garish.

It is easy to see why this deck is intensely popular, especially among novice readers. Hanson-Robert's artwork is, of course, extraordinary. In addition, the small size of the deck (roughly playing-card size: approximately 3-15/16" x 2-3/8") facilitates handling. This is a particular advantage not only for readers who find the larger decks cumbersome, but also for those who prefer to allow the querant, who is likely to be unaccustomed to handling the "larger-than-standard-size" of most Tarot decks, to shuffle prior to reading.

Although Hanson-Robert's faithfulness to the RWS system and small-sized cards is often considered an advantage, it appears that she took little opportunity for her own creativity to add to the system. Further, although the size of the deck indeed facilitates handling for many, one may get the impression that the small size of the cards required that many symbolic details may have been omitted to prevent the cards from appearing overly "crowded." In short, where the Hanson-Roberts Tarot has advantages in aesthetics and size, it appears to have significant deficits in salient symbolic representation.

This deck is usually accompanied by a standard little white book (LWB), which is adequate in that it provides a brief description of some of the traditional card meanings and the "Celtic Cross" spread. Consistent with the popularity of this deck, however, there are two companion books available specifically for these cards. Tarot Unveiled: The Method to its Magic by Laura Clarson is illustrated with the Hanson-Roberts deck and details a marvelous and easy-to-comprehend basic system for Tarot interpretation. Additionally, Susan Hansson's The Hanson-Roberts Tarot Companion has also been met with considerable accolades.

In sum, the Hanson-Roberts Tarot is an ideal deck for the beginning reader and more seasoned readers who prefer a faithful, attractive, rendition of the RWS system. It's size makes for ease of handling as well as portability, which should please both novices and experienced readers alike.
