One of the nicest things about being a writer is that companies send me their products for review purposes. Sometimes these people even become my email buddies which was the case with Joseph Vargo of Monolith Graphics in the USA. Joseph is a very talented artist, writer and musician - I am a huge fan of his Gothic band Nox Arcana so I was delighted when he sent me a pack of divination cards which feature the artwork of Christine Filipak.
This beautiful oracle deck of 48 cards draws on world mythology and heraldic beasts. The artwork is presented in a romantic Art Nouveau style reminiscent of Mucha, which flows across the cards and brings a touch of feminine sophistication to readings. The set includes a 32 page booklet which explains how to use the cards, suggestions for different spreads and offers detailed definitions for interpretation. Even better, each card has a basic meaning printed at the foot of the picture ideal for quick readings or for drawing a single card each day.
For a girl who loves romantic art, as I do, these cards are ideal. They are not at all scary - each of the pictures is a beautifully crafted piece of artwork, which gives a nod to the Romanticism of the 18th and 19th centuries. My favorite cards are the Harlequin, the Siren, the Unicorn, the Knight and the Minstrel. I have used these cards regularly for over a year now and it has become my favorite deck. As the cards are easy to understand and interpret this is great tool for beginners and those who are new to cardomancy. You can buy them from www.monolithgraphics.com
Disclaimer; these cards were gifted to me for review purposes well over a year ago but this is not a sponsored post.
