What You Get: It really depends on what you want to spend. With all of the deck choices on offer there is no little white booklet.
This deck has to be one of the most beautiful decks I have ever seen. The imagery really connects with me and pulls me in. The artist David Higgins really has a love for the Tarot and put a great deal of time, love and energy into completing the deck. It really shows. There is so much detail in this deck, without being too busy or having it take away from the beautiful colours used.
The Sacred Isle Tarot is really a joy to read with. The cards are almost singing out their meanings and I have loved getting to know them and using them with my Clients. They are clear and welcoming which is a lovely combination.
This is another deck where I much prefer the images do most of the talking as my words won’t really match the beauty of the art work.
The only annoying thing about this Tarot deck is that both sides of the cards are not laminated. Which makes me worry about using them a lot and handing them to people, as cards can wreck after a lot of wear. Plus I have been known to spill more than my fair share of cups of tea over the years and at least you can salvage a laminated deck from that kind of accident. The original Major Arcana only deck is laminated on both sides.
There are so many options in regards to what else you can get with the Tarot deck. You can get the original Majors Only deck as well as the complete 78 Card deck. There are mugs, T-Shirts, Tote bags, calendars, art prints and the list goes on. So scroll down to make sure that you are purchasing what you really want. There is a lot on offer. With the package that I ordered I got the Value pack 2.
They are taking pre-orders for the black border version of the 78 card deck on the site as well. There is also an app for this Tarot Deck available via The Fool’s Dog.
