Mystic Dreamer Tarot

MYSTICDREAMER-TAROT

The Mystic Dreamer Tarot has atmospheric cards, created with skillful photo collages of real people, landscapes, and some computer generated elements. The fully-illustrated deck has now been published by Llewellyn, with a companion book by Barbara Moore. The Llewellyn deck has rather different borders to the original graphics.

This deck, by Heidi Darras, is a photo-manipulated deck. At times this art style is used to great effect, and the deck reminds us Ciro Marchetti’s Gilded Tarot and Tarot of Dreams.

The cards themselves are Llewellyn’s standard size, with reversible backs that have a striking lunar design. Both the card backs and the card fronts have parchment-like borders, with a scroll in the bottom border bearing the card name and number. The titles have remained the same as the Rider Waite Smith deck, as has the numbering of the Majors and the elemental attributions of the suits.

The deck is presented in an attractive box with the companion book and is nicely presented.

This is a beautiful deck to look at, and many will like it. Also those who want a nice alternative to the Rider Waite Smith, and something in a more modern style will appreciate it more. It would be an excellent first deck and is recommended to beginners, people who want something different.
