Review by Kathleen Meadows - Aeclectic Tarot
"What I immediately adored about this deck was its natural, cozy friendliness. The images are predominantly small-town, and rural, middle-ages scenes depicting characters that are rather homely, and therefore quite delightful. The pervasive colour scheme is soft, muted browns, and greens, the characters are typically outfitted in furry, elfin shoes, Viking helmets, and lose-fitting, plainly comfortable clothing. The dwellings are natural, humble cottages. I would describe the imagery as whimsical, and imagine it would appeal especially to younger readers.
For those studying the gods, goddesses and legends of the Druidic mystical tradition, this deck will be fun and helpful. You really have to see Lo Scarabeo’s depiction of Morrigan as the Empress, a voluptuous, Viking-like warrior woman playing the harp, or Brigh as the High Priestess, plump, contemplative, seated outside in a meadow-- to fully appreciate the thought and work that went into the creation of this deck. It is a real find for those who are wary of imagery that is alarmist, dramatic and potentially jarring. Certainly if you read this deck for others, they wont be frightened or put off by the images; in fact, in all likelihood they will giggle appreciatively at the scenes depicted.
For those who think the Tarot is a serious business, the deck may appear a little too storybook-like, resembling the types of illustrations you might find in a children’s fairy tale. But for the new reader these detailed and delightful illustrations will make your interpretive job much easier. The feeling, tone, action indicated, characterization are all plainly laid out for you, acting as great story prompts. This deck is like a down-to-earth friend who makes you laugh, feel warm and welcome. I highly recommend it"
