There are many Celtic themed decks, but when you look at them they're usually solely or predominently Irish Celtic, so when I first heard that Llewellyn were making a Mabinogion themed deck I was happy. When I found out that Anna-Marie Ferguson was the artist I was overjoyed. She had previously illustrated an Arthurian deck which was beautiful but which didn't work for me as a reading deck.

 

The Llewellyn absolutely does work for me. I bought it when it was originally published, looked through the cards then sat down with the book and found myself nodding in agreement with every choice they made.

 

A few comments:

The minors have a different art style to the majors. I like the difference, I know some people have found it to be a problem. The majors are richly detailed, the minors more sketchy, less detailed.

 

The cards are large and have a large border. I trimmed the border completely off mine.

 

If you've not already done so I would strongly suggest reading the Mabinogion if you're interested in this deck. (There's a lovely edition of the Lady Charlotte Guest translation illustrated by Alan Lee. The Gwyn Jones and Thomas Jones translation is considered to be the best though iirc)
