Welcome to my mini-reviews of tarot decks. I am working through this list and eventually will have commentary on all the decks, but there are still a handful I have not gotten to yet. I also have links to creators' sites, informative background information, other online reviews, and images elsewhere on the web.
I have tried to be evenhanded, and to restrain myself from saying anything really obnoxious about any of the decks in the list below. But if you are entertained by such commentary, you need to check out some of the things others have said in the Tarot Passages survey about the Worst Tarot Packs they have purchased/seen.
You may notice that there are no links to reviews hosted by the site Tarot Passages. That site requests that webmasters of other sites make no more than 10 links to it, which I am respecting by providing only this top-level link. Many decks, most on this list in fact, are reviewed there, but in accordance with the wishes of the maintainers of that site I do not provide links to individual reviews there. If you wish more reviews than those listed here, you can try there as well.
Excellent article by Robert Place about Tarot and History. "...many people in the New-Age culture are uncomfortable with history. They seem to feel that history is a plot to distort reality and protect those in power. Therefore, they reason that the real truth must be found elsewhere, even, at times, in the most illogical of fantasies."
Want to link to this page or any of its subpages? Go for it! It's perfectly legal to do so without asking anyhow! I'm pretty picky about reciprocal links on this top page, but if you have a review to a deck that I haven't linked to, let me know about it and I can link to it from the section pertaining to that deck. Want me to review your deck? I'd love to... email me for arrangements.
