confusing oracle but book and cards are well illustrated ( )

This book/deck really makes you exercise your own capabilities for reading cards without using someone else's definitions. It includes advice on preparing for a reading, how to read cards without using someone else's definitions, advice on working with fairies, and a good deal of other things that make you look beyond using a deck and a book.

I'm still trying to get the hang of it, but I really enjoy the deck and its illustrations. They are beautifully done and presented in a great hard cover book and quality cards. ( )

Absolutely Beautiful - I love them so much and I truly get acurate readings each time I use these cards! ( )

I have to admit that I'm one of the people who picked this up not for the tarot deck, but for the gorgeous artwork by Brian Froud. I had already seen many of the cards on his website, and could not have been more satisfied once I had them in my hands. One noticeable difference with this is that Froud is usually light and almost satirical, while Macbeth decided to take a much darker tone when it came to explainations of the cards and their meanings. I was okay with this, because his Faeries are much darker than the typical glowing pixies we see in children's books.

In the actual book, Macbeth stresses the power of the individual rather than the cards, and searching for your own meanings through the cards. While I am not much of a tarot person, it was fun to dive in with this deck and actually use the cards for what they were meant for. The cards themselves are a nice size but not unwieldy, and each seems to have its own unique feeling to it, as each faerie Froud depicts has a clear life and emotion to it. Since, as I said earlier, I am not usually one for Tarot, this was a surprisingly satisfying buy. I recommend it to all lovers of Froud's work, or just any faery lover in general. ( )

Another card divination system based on the mythology of fairies. Beware these are not of the tinkerbell variety. They remind me more of Albert Gorey's work. There seems to be a balance between good and harshness in this set. ( )
