User Reviews

“this set is really the only thing you need for learning tarot. It is complete and easy to understand. It comes in a lovely box and the cards are beautiful. The booklet contains all you need for basic reading. Each card has it own meaningful page. I would recommend this both the booklet and the cards to anyone. If you are looking for beginning tarot, look no further.” Emily Nicole Carper

“This package includes the Hanson-Roberts Tarot and The essential book of TAROT.The Hanson-Roberts Tarot is a lighthearted redrawing of the Rider-Waite Tarot by Mary Hanson-Roberts. The penciled artwork is slightly cartoonish, and the scenes are rendered much closer than the Rider-Waite tarot. The result is a tarot deck that even as being small-sized, it is still easy to read, to study and to appreciate. Some of the symbolism had been traded off for the close up shots, which may be a turn off for some tarot collectors, but makes it easier for beginners to use. Each card in this deck is labeled in five languages within a small white scrolls at the bottom. The English label is most prominent than the others, most of the time presented in the middle of the scroll. The Major Arcanas are numbered, starting at 0 for The Fool and roman numerals for the remainder Major Arcanas. The essential book of TAROT by Rosalind Simmons is essentially a small hard covered illustrated version of the Little White Book that usually comes with tarot decks. Albeit being a cute book, it slightly hinders the portability of this deck. However, it works well as part of this gift set. This set is recommended for those tarot collectors who like small-sized tarot decks.” Neko-San
