This rating is more properly 3.5 stars because as you can see from the photo, not all of the card numbers and titles are easy to read, and with a deck as abstract as this, it sometimes takes me a moment to identify what card and suit i'm working with.


But all that said, this is a lovely, gorgeous and sumptuous deck with vivid watercolors and whimsical animal illustrations. My friends and acquaintances LOVE this deck, it's one of my most-requested to do readings wtih, and I think it's easy to see why. The suits are rabbits (wands), foxes (cups), badgers (swords), and crows (pentacles). I will say that I'm always swapping badgers and crows around in my head because intuitively it makes so much more sense to me to read crows as swords and badgers as pentacles, so this deck presents a constant challenge to me on that front. But that's what makes it exciting!
