5.0 von 5 Sternen Overwhelming 2. März 2012
Von Frank E. McManus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I received the Mary-El Tarot today, quite unexpectedly. Amazon has listed it as back-ordered for awhile now, and I hadn't noticed the e-mail telling me it had been shipped ... but suddenly it appeared. I opened the package with some trepidation -- would it live up to the expectations I've had for it over the past four or five years? The answer is an unqualified YES.

The presentation is excellent: the sturdy box has a hinged top that stays closed with a hidden magnet. The compartment for the cards is much better quality than many similar boxes. (But it's necessary to tip the whole box over to get all the cards out; the thumb hole doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the box. A ribbon attached to the bottom of the compartment should fix that.)

When I pulled the cards out of the box and began my initial quick glance through the deck -- to get a feel for the cards and to make sure they were all there -- the first thing I noticed is that one of the cards was backwards in the deck, and out of order: the Queen of Cups. I set it aside and started going through the rest of the deck, expecting that maybe I'd find another card was missing. But no: they were all there. I just had an extra Queen of Cups. The wise woman in that card is staring at me now as I write this. About her, Marie White says this: "The Queen of Cups _is_ the Holy Grail, the reservoir and container of all our subconscious and ancestral wisdom, the dark waters of the abyss." Oh my.

I've now spent two hours going through the deck slowly, card by card, spending a few seconds or a minute on each one, then going back to them again and again. I've never seen a Tarot deck as rich, beautiful, and haunting as this one. The images all seem utterly unique, yet utterly familiar. With every card I have a sense of deep familiarity, as if I've been seeing the images my whole life, but I can't quite name them or remember where I saw them; but every familiar image is also deeply surreal, alien, new.

A few initial reactions:

--The box describes the Mary-El Tarot as inspired by the three main Tarot traditions: Rider-Waite, Marseille and Thoth. I've had a Thoth deck for a long time, but never really paid much attention to it: Crowley's occultism never appealed to me. But I just took it out again and looked over the cards, and the strong influence of them on the Mary-El is quite apparent (and makes me appreciate Thoth in a way I never have before). Many of the cards in this new deck have the swirling, cosmic feel of the Thoth cards, the multiple layers of surreal symbolism, and the odd presence of simple geometrical forms: a few lines forming a triangle, for example.

--Some common elements: lots of runes (I have no idea what they mean); lots of tattoos; a strong eroticism, including explicit male, female and (in the Aces) androgynous nudity; a surprising degree of variation in approach from one card to another, including strong human portraits (the Queen of Cups); landscapes (the Fours); close-up animal "portraits" (the Knight of Wands); symbolic abstraction (7 of Disks); and so on.

--The colors are extremely rich and dense: you'll find no airy-fairy pastels here. This is the earthiest Tarot I've ever seen.

--Each card has a simple black border that makes the image really pop. The titles are printed in a simple font (maybe too simple; to me it lacks character).

--Occasionally the level of detail in the original painting is so fine that it's hard to see in the cards. There's some not-quite-legible writing in the King of Swords, for example.

--The style of much of the art is reminiscent of Leo and Diane Dillon, especially their more psychedelic SF/fantasy book covers from the 60s and 70s, which were some of favorite book covers growing up.

--There are several cards that didn't appeal to me, or that I actually didn't like, when I first saw the images on the author's website. But today I've found that in every single case, by lingering over the card, looking more closely at the details, and simply questioning their meaning, I've changed my mind. I can honestly say now that there's not a single card in the deck that doesn't strike me as profound and beautiful.

--There's also not a single card in the deck that I can really say I understand with anything like a firm grasp of what's going on. That's a good thing!

--Is it my imagination or is there quite a bit of biblical imagery in these cards?

--The cards are large and glossy. They seem very good quality, but I'm still a little worried how they'll react to much handling. The glossiness is almost sticky, which makes me think they may attract dust and grit which might start to scratch the cards. Also, I do wonder if the edges of the cards will hold up: will the high gloss coating start to peel over time? No idea. But it's a concern. The quality is high, but not as good as the best (i.e., the Kat Black's Golden and Touchstone Tarots). At least that's my first impression.

So my conclusion is this: The Mary-El Tarot is (and here's a phrase I usually _loathe_, but it's totally appropriate here) an instant classic. I can hardly conceive that there might be a better Tarot published this year, or this decade. It's that good.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit of overkill. 28. Juli 2012
Von Robby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Although I have given this product only three stars, my dissatisfaction does not derive from the cards themselves. The Mary-El Tarot cards are every bit as intriguing and lovely as any other reviewer has already stated. Ms. White writes that her tarots pay homage to three different and important branches of the tarot family: the Marseilles, the Waite-Smith, and the Crowley-Harris. With obvious nods to each throughout, every card is a self-contained work of art that reflects the artist's vision and her internal synthesis of various (and often contradictory) personal and esoteric influences. Having said that, I have studied Tarot under a primarily Golden Dawn framework for almost two decades and feel that I can very often see the point that Ms. White is trying to make in her artwork. At the risk of sounding haughty, I do not recommend this deck as anyone's first deck. These cards are complicated and will require some attention in order to use them well, but I believe that they may eventually be a deck I use with confidence. As an aside, the cards are also wonderfully large and may require some practice shuffling.

Unfortunately, after being mezmerized with startling and provocative imagery on nearly every card, I tried to read the book. Schiffer must be scolded for this. Obviously, they employ more typesetters than editors. The introduction bombards the reader with an awkward and trite cut-and-paste style that is so poorly punctuated and disorganized that I pitied Ms. White for being allowed to appear so unprepared by her publisher. The descriptions of the cards fare little better. In the past, I have reveled in reading or listening to an artist explain his or her process. Ms. White tries to explain her cards as Tarot rather than art, and, in the process, becomes so vague and impersonal that she contradicts herself from card to card. In and of itself, the idea of mystical or esoteric contradiction is not bad or, for that matter, uncommon; but Ms. White's skills do seem more artistic than literary (which is why two of most important historical esoteric decks had both a writer and an artist). At the end of each card's description, the reader is also treated to the card's personal meaning and then the card's traditional divinatory meaning. These are unnecessary redundancies, as many are practically verbatim repetition, seemingly included for no other reason than to fill the page. I think the publisher sorely overestimated the need for packaging on this product. What could have been a deck and book(let) set has turned into a package the size of a small boardgame or a box of chocolates, with a hurried and bloated book filling up too much of an otherwise empty box.

Finally, I will say this: please buy these cards. If you collect tarots, this will be a fascinating addition to your collection. If you also read tarot, I believe these cards will eventually produce some of your best work. Schiffer alone dropped the proverbial ball on this one by rushing and overpackaging Ms. White's beautiful deck of tarot cards. Enjoy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most BEAUTIFUL tarot 23. Februar 2012
Von sam cedar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This tarot by Marie White is intensely cosmic and conveys a vivid sense of mystery and the divine. Beautiful seems too cliche a word for a new item in a already saturated medium filled with lots of beautiful decks. So maybe stunning or "stop what you are doing and look at me" awesomeness might suffice.

It's a bit large and hard to shuffle, but if you practice I think it gets easier.

I think this is a deck that comes along only once in a while. Thought provoking and meditative. Wild and non-violent, gentle but extremely powerful at the same time.

Very much recommended. Beginners may have some trouble though. I think the author assumes some traditional and esoteric tarot knowledge is known already. The book is not a light read, but has a warmth to it that is poetic and meditative. Time will tell as I become more familiar, but I feel this deck may be best used for personal, spiritual growth rather than readings for others.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Tarot Deck That I Own. 3. März 2012
Von S. Atkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This tarot deck is seriously stunning! The box opens with magnetic closure. On one side you have a beautifully printed and well written companion guide that includes black and white photos of each card. On the other side lies the large, vibrant and amazing deck of the Mary El Tarot. Her artwork not only exudes raw talent, but a heavy sense of the traditional meanings of the tarot. There are many beautiful paintings of anatomical figures that represent clearly their intended interpretations. On other cards there are beautifully rendered animals that evoke a sense of mystery and wonder. Each painting utilizes colour, mood, figures, nature, the polarity of male and female and their union, occult symbolism and so much more. It is set against a black border, which works wonderfully with the vibrant colours in the cards.

5 Stars For the Artwork. I think this could appeal to tarot traditionalists as well as people who appreciate modern illustration.

4 Stars for the deck quality. Printed on high quality card stock. Each card is large enough to do each painting justice. Thick enough that they will not easily bend. Vibrant and clear print quality. The only complaints I have is the cards stick together easily and there are some irregularities in the lamination which created a white spot on the backs of a couple of cards. Also, my deck's borders are not the same size all around, the picture is off center.'Were they hastily cut or is everyone's deck like this? It's not very noticeable, maybe I am being a tad picky here.

5 Stars for the Booklet. This goes above and beyond most "little white books" that come with tarot decks. Of course if you have a deep interest in tarot you will always want to read more. However, if you just want to refer to something quickly this book will fully encompass your needs.

Overall, this is truly one of my favorite tarot decks. I have 11 decks so far and this one has been the most impressive. I think I love almost everything about it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The cards are stunning, the book somewhat less so 12. Oktober 2013
Von Anita R. Perez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If it were a matter of simply judging these as a collection of paintings, this would be a smashing success for me.
As it stands though- these are Tarot Cards, and I was somewhat disappointed in their readability.
They are still well worth collecting, and the quality of the images is nothing less than stunning, but often the symbology does not jive with more traditional Tarot usage. While that is ok for a more advanced reader, I think these could actually be a hindrance to beginning students. I found the accompanying book to be abstruse and scattered, though the language was colorful, and had clearly been the product of much thought and effort. I know the designer/author put a great deal of herself into this project, so I was a little disappointed that they didn't speak to me with as much clarity and vehemence as I had expected them too...but the art DOES still bowl me over.
This deck was received as a review copy from Schiffer Publishing Co.
