    A flowing, mythical, magical and emotional Tarot….., January 8, 2009

    I’ve been a long fan of Paulina Cassidy, I have many of her works. Prints, cards. Such amazing and erethral pieces and fantastically affordable! When I heard in her newsletter she was drawing a full Tarot deck, I was over the moon!

    Then the looong wait ensued. It was more than worth it in this case. The images are an almost perfect replica of her images scanned online. USG had these cards printed in China and I love the cardstock! For the past few years they have been having all their cards printed in Italy and they have been heavily laminated. Many have complained about this. I myself didn’t mind them at all, and even liked some aspects. But the cardstock on The Paulina is more reminescent of AGM decks. A light matte lamination and quality paper.

    I’ve been using, studying and reading with this deck for about a week, and it’s been a sumptious and eye-opening journey. This is so far to me a very intuitive deck with gorgeous delicate detail. There is so many layers to each image. I catch sight of something absolutely enchanting everytime I look! The deck as a whole is very coherent and gives one the impression of entering a fairyland world…..a very specific one with it’s own population, style of dress, habitats, rituals and traditions. Paulina Tarot is strongly RWS based. But the artist has used a large amount of creative twists and imagination. It’s not a slavish clone.

    Paulina obviously knows her Tarot well and put much love, thought and amazing energy into each image.

    The Paulina Tarot certainly isn’t for everyone (which deck is?). It’s colours and tone is soft and gentle. More muted and dreamy. There are many vibrant and striking hues though throughout the deck. But on the whole it has a misty and dream-like energy to them. Those that prefer strong colours and distinct lines or bold images won’t be taken with this deck. But there are a few friends who prefer the things I mentioned above but on seeing my deck have been captivated and infatuated and wanted their own copies right off!

    Just something about this Tarot’s aura and exquisite energy. It really draws you in.

    The cards measure the average size of most USG decks…..2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. The backs are lovely and serene. I wish I had a scanner or camera, but alas none of those to show the backs. They are reversible with 2 soaring birds, flowers, plants. Muted and soft colouring. They happily “fit” the images and style of the cards themselves. We all know way to many decks where the backs of the cards leave you with WTF were they thinking?!

    The LWB (little white book) is pretty well-done as far as LWB’s are. She describes the cards lyrically and shares her ideas about some of the symbolism on each card. Per usual though the Majors get a little longer treatment. The interpertations are fairly standard with some interesting twists. No interesting spreads, just the yawn inducing Celtic Cross. Wish more different and interesting spreads would find their way into LWBs. I won’t hold my breath though!

    If you love and enjoy all things faerie, magical, fantasy, victorian and otherworldy…..you will really enjoy this deck, you will NOT be disappointed!

    Where can I start? I have been watching this Tarot develope on the artists website for the past few years. Now I hold the finished product in my hand. This is a masterpiece as far as Tarot decks go. It takes the traditonal images to a new and very, very, detailed level that should your tastes favor this interpretation, you will find a new favorite.

    In the endless Rider Waite clones that get stamped out each year, Paulina Tarot rises above the heard. I generally prefer a very boldly colored deck for easier interpretation. It is true, the colors are subtle and easy on the eye. Yet, they are no less vivid. I adore the delicate lines and layers of every card. This is not my first deck, and will not be my last. I collect decks, most are locked away as art decks. This one is very useable as well as aesthetically pleasing. Your clients get a visual treat, as well as very accurate advice.

    Whimsical, dreamy and nostalgic, I cannot stop singing the praises of this labor of love. I followed Paulina’s plight in New Orleans, after Hurricane Katrina. Indeed, the frailty of life is reflected in this deck. It will remain near & dear to my heart! If you feel there are too many decks published annually, treat yourself to this one. It is the new pinnacle as far as other Tarots are concerned. Good luck topping this one.

    This review is from: Paulina Tarot (Cards)

    Paulina Cassidy was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and has been very interested in fairies for most of her life. These cards are a task she set herself and are very beautiful, delicate and unique.

    This is a delicate and romantic seventy-eight tarot deck with instruction book (LWB). The cards are packed with detail and every time you re-visit them you espy something new. It is charming, has a Victorian flair with a pinch of a gothic Mardi Gras for good measure. The deck contains much of the Rider-Waite-Smith symbolism. The artwork is in watercolour and is done in soft, muted shades and I like her use of colour and visual interest by using animals, birds and fish along with the fae.

    I always feel I should be using a lace table cloth when I get out this deck as I have a feeling of stepping back into a time of whimsy and magic. It takes you to a place where Dragons and Pegasus fly and many other magical creatures live side by side, interacting with humans. She also liberally uses birds, butterflies, dragonflies, all in magical forest and woodland settings.

    The deck is printed on a high quality cardstock and measure 4 ‘” tall x 2 ‘” wide, with a very narrow, white border. The backs are done in soft shades of beige and grey featuring beautiful birds in flight. They are reversible. The cards have the card number and title on the bottom of each. Strength is numbered 8 and Justice 11. The suits are standard: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles.

    The LWB contains forty-seven pages. The Majors are listed first and the Minors follow in suit order. There is a description for each card, as well as, traditional meanings for upright and reverse draws. There is a brief segment discussing the Art of Divination. The LWB also includes the traditional Celtic Cross Spread and two blank pages to write notes.

    This deck would be a nice tool for beginners as well as for the professional readers, however, some of the imagery is not strictly Rider Waite. For example Judgement is not three people in coffins with an angel blowing a trumpet but a person suspended happily in nature, cocooned in a tree of white light, whilst still joined by a golden thread/root to the earth. I really adore this deck and the imagery in this deck and I would highly recommend to anyone who is happy with “busy” illustrations and wants something very original. There is a definite feel of light and dark in some of the cards and an intricate organic theme to most of the illustrations; almost as though the designs grew and evloved onto the paper. From sunlit fields with flowers and rabbits to a foggy cemetery every card is delightful and inspirational.

    I feel this deck would be suitable for all ages unless you had a highly sensitive person who may not like the slight gothic tone to it. It is for this type of sensibility I use the Gummi Bear tarot.

    The service from Amazon was extremely good I received the cards promptly and in perfect condition.

    Paulina now lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee with her husband. She has a website and it still working on new decks. If your like her artwork some of the orginal drawings are for sale. She also does the Pixie Kins calendar.

    I hope you enjoy :)
