Back of card: Fancy pale purple on white featuring the initials, "MM". Can be inverted. My friend just wandered over. "It's the M&M deck!" she exclaimed.

Publisher: Carlton. Printed in Italy, produced in England.

Comments: So you've not heard of Mystic Meg? The world's best-known fortune teller? Don't be glum, you just don't live in the right world. And neither do we, we must confess. Mystic Meg is big in England. And that's a whole world in itself. Ask any Englishman or woman. Or so I presume.

Meg & her illustrator have simplified the tarot, the result is pleasing. But they stopped a bit short of making a really easy to use deck: Pip cards are just pip cards. Only major arcana & court cards have fancy pictures.

Each card gets a page in the book (a very pretty book, too). Text is brief & to the point: Each card has a Love Reading, Life Reading, Luck Reading & Cosmic Counsel. There are no inverted readings.

The publisher, Carlton, is unfamiliar with the professional tarot market. Take the cellophane off the box, open it & pull out the contents. There is a book lying on a bed of crude sytrofoam. Beneath the book, in the center of the styrofoam, is a cutout for the cards, which are banded. The styrofoam tends to crumble & make a mess. This needs better packaging.
