The Golden Tarot Deck Review
No deck is going to please 100% of the people 100% of the time, of course. But The Golden Tarot Deck not only caught my eye but everyone I have interacted with who has seen it or used it really liked it.
There was clearly a lot of thought put into the choices that were made for the artwork as well as serious effort was made to produce high-quality, beautiful images in the first place. All of the images look like they could have been painted in the middle ages; however they were made digitally by the deck’s designer. She apparently took parts of actual early paintings and used software to “knit” them into new images.
The cards themselves have gilded edges, but like most things that are gilded, some of the gold will rub off slightly with use. I have not had trouble with this deck but it is not the one that I use daily; I have heard that one or two readers have had the image peel off from the card stock but that did not happen to me. Obviously that’s a fatal flaw so if you buy the deck, I recommend working with it for at least an hour or so while it is still within its “guaranteed” time period. Usually if something like that is going to happen (where a deck is a lemon due to poor production) it happens fairly early on.
