Joie de Vivre
By Jewel

The Joie de Vivre, French for Joy of Life, is a deck created by artist Paulina Cassidy and published by US Games in 2011.  The cards are 2 ¾ X 4 ¾ and of quality glossy card stock typical of US Games decks.  The cards are packaged in a flip top box along with a 61 page little white book (LWB).  The LWB includes an introduction, key words, the name and descriptions of the characters on the cards, divinatory meaning, reversed meaning, a small section about the author, and two pages to write notes.  The backs of the cards are golden to yellow with a vine design and are reversible.  The front and back of the cards are framed with a thin black line and have a ¼ inch white border. 

The images are watercolor paintings in pastel colors with vibrant tones.  The images follow the whimsical and unmistakable style I associate with Paulina Cassidy art, but are visually simpler than Ms. Cassidy’s previous...

The Cosmic Tribe
By Jewel

I wrote this review for Aeclectic many years ago.  My love for the deck remains after all of these years so I thought I would post this review here as well.

The Sasuraibito Tarot by Stasia Burrington was my first actual indie deck (vs. the decks I own that were indie before they got a major publishing deal) and my favourite purchase of 2017. I wrote a small review of it in the Little Red Tarot Shop where it's listed but here I will try to expand further on the points that were mentioned in that very brief article.

The artwork itself is of a charming illustrative style vaguely reminiscent of both cartoons and manga, though it still keeps some realism and I wouldn't call it overly stylized. The art seems to have been done with watercolours (in some cards you can see the texture of the watercolour paper) and ink. Burrington drew on her Japanese heritage when making it, something you can read more about in this article: The cards are usually not a clear clone of the RWS in its depictions, but when I've used it and read in the little book ...
