Reviews
have yet seen in a deck, which says something if you consider I have been reading Tarot for decades. The art is inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites, in particular the art of Edward Burne-Jones. But it has been redrawn in Place's unique and glorious style, which is accessible to a beginner yet no less deep for the adept.

It has definite advantages over some of Place's previous decks; the card stock is better than his Vampire Tarot. Perhaps this is because Place had more control over the printing. This deck was put out by his own company, Hermes Publications. The card stock for this deck is a nice, thick laminate which is easy to shuffle or cut. They are a comfortable size for your hands, too. My only complaint on that score is that the cards are rather slick and inclined to slip out of your hands.

The LWB (Little White book) is very useful. I appreciate the detail contained within it. Place does say that he will put out a more detailed book at some later point, presumably this will be a trade paperback.

Place again links this deck to alchemical imagery; which is a special interest of mine. But you don't have to know alchemy to appreciate the symbology, or to interpret the images. Though I was a little disappointed to see a couple of the cards repeat imagery from his Alchemical Tarot. For example the Two of Pentacles with the intertwined serpents and the Four of Cups with the Elephant standing on the Vessels, but they are new drawing of these cards and this is a minor quibble.

This deck also has ties to Platonic philosophy, should you want to explore that aspect. There are helpful key writings on some of the cards which tie into that; such as The Lovers, The Chariot, Justice, and some of the other Major Arcana cards. But I do want to emphasize that if you are familiar with the Waite/Coleman-Smith deck, you should be able to navigate this deck fairly quickly.

Some of the reworkings of the deck are simply brilliant; such as the Wheel of Fortune as a Goddess surrounded by the signs of the Zodiac and Prudence within the World. Also this deck restores Justice to eight and Strength to eleven. It is a standard 78 card deck. Oh; and notice the greyhounds scattered through the deck, Place is involved with greyhound rescue. They are a nice touch, and not at all intrusive within the imagery of the cards.

All in all, this is a lovely deck which is well worth having. I find it truly inspiring. I treasure my copy already.
