The Universal Fantasy Tarot deck arrived through the post yesterday and I had a wonderful time sitting on a bench in the sun getting to know this deck yesterday afternoon. It was love at first sight so this interview will be biased but then I never claimed to be an objective reviewer of tarot decks. Some of the cards made me giggle with delight and every single card warranted a second glance. There is so much going on! Yes, you have been warned: This deck is not for you if you are the kind of person who prefers plain lines and decks that aren’t too ‘busy.’
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture the rich detail or vibrant colours of this deck in the photo I took earlier for the actual deck interview (below). I was really drawn in by both the colours and the movement of the lines of these cards. This sense of movement is something the Universal Fantasy shares with the Mary-El which was the other deck that arrived yesterday. They are both quite intense decks but the Universal Fantasy manages to be playful too and that is probably the reason I felt drawn to interview this deck first.
Had I received this deck as a young child, I would have played with the images for hours on end, making up stories for each of the characters.
