and I have had it for a long time now, but it is not one of my favorite decks to use for readings. The people portrayed in the art are elfin and very, very thin -- the style is pretty gothic, although initially I remember seeing it as sort of a heavy-metal-band aesthetic. This is a US Games-published deck and comes with a small booklet of divinatory and reversed meanings, which, unlike many of US Games' booklets, is written by the artist herself. There are 79 cards; the extra card features a performer type of character and the words "Who Are You Really?" It is meant to function as a sort of wild card, but can be removed from the deck.

Artistically, the deck is appealing in that the images and situations have an otherworldly quality, and I sometimes get a transported or elevated feeling through using these cards, as though the answers they give are unfettered, rising above what is mundane and concrete. The androgyny of the people in the images adds to this effect for me. Londa's portrayals of the tarot characters sometimes show a succinct and unique insight; I particularly resonate with the alien face of the Hermit and the Eight of Cups "stage fright". At other times, she seems to be going out of her way to put a new, edgy spin on the cards' traditional meanings, with results that do look "different"" but not with any real sensibility (for example, the upright Hanged Man).

I find this deck especially useful for queries involving money and other superficial issues, such as connections with coworkers and other people with whom we interact on a small-talk level. In my experience it is not helpful for gaining insight about deep relationships, important life issues, or your own internal reality. I do not recommend the deck for beginnining readers, as the art is mainly in a portraiture style, rather than displaying symbolic situations or activities. For collectors, this is a nice deck to own if you like gothic and/or dark fantasy art.
