Oh yes Sulis, its one of those oh-so-cute decks which really packs a punch. There is so much character in the cards, particularly the courts, that makes the deck very readable. The faces are somewhat oversize and the eyes so emotive, that even though the deck is smaller than usual the imagery always comes across very clearly. It is definitely my favourite travelling deck.
I think my number one favourite has to be The Lovers
, which is so full of "the joy that... feels like sadness". But there are so many cards that I really like, and none that I really dislike. Also of note in the Majors, Temperance is goosebump inducing, Judgement is inspiring, Strength is tender and embracing, and the Emperor is thought-provoking. But I must say that the High Priestess is a little too rigid and formal for me.
All the Courts are excellant, and I agree with you Sulis, the Pages and Queens are outstanding. I especially like the Ice-Queen of Swords, the Torrid-Queen of Wands warming her giant cat, and the Gypsy-Queen of Pentacles with her rabbit-in-arms.
There are many highlights in the Minors too, including the manic Seven of Wands, the delightful Three of Cups, the poignant damsel-in-distress Nine of Swords, and the so-tired-it-hurts Seven of Pentacles.
All in all a great deck!
PS. That would be the Eight of Swords for the damsel-in-distress, not the Nine. This week she is finally learning to escape on her own!
