The Golden Tarot
I own several tarot decks but one of my favorites has to be Kat Black's Golden Tarot. Based on RWS but I personally find the imagery more engaging and I prefer the coloring. She used renaissance art as the inspritation but there is a enough RWS symbolism there that even a beginner can feel comfortable working with this deck. Plus US Games Systems went all out for this deck. It comes in a durable box with a removable lid. It does have just a LWB but rather an actually little paperback book. The cards are printed on much thicker card stock. Plus the edges are gilted. This does make for a tougher wearing in period as the thicker cards can be more difficult to shuffle. The gilting can lead to the cards sort of clumping together. After a week or so of daily use those issues go away. Click here to Purchase I have two decks new and sealed available on ebay.
