Publisher: Thorsons/Aquarian Press. Printed in the U.K.

Comments: This looks a lot more like an American Indian deck with Celtic overtones than pre-Celtic, but we do not profess to be experts in the pre-Celtic world. Some cards have a distinct fairy-like feel (as in "wee folk") with faces that appear out of the green leaves (Greenwoman, Greenman). The Cerne Abbas Giant turns up here, too, as the Five of Wands, representing Power. Here the drawing is a more accurate picture of the actual Giant in Dorset, as is the definition. (See The Arthurian Tarot for more.) Some cards feature the Celtic cup & ring marks. Suits are Wands, Stones, Cups & Arrows. All the court cards depict animals. Includes a sheet of heavy paper with a suggested circular card layout, based on cardinal directions (north, south, east, west), seasons, festivals & suggested cards for each of eight/sixteen positions.
