How does photo melange grab you?

As ever, Schiffer’s production standards with the Gaia’s Vision Oracle are second to none.  While I’m not a huge fan of their card stock for tarot decks, as it’s durable but rather thick for ease of shuffling, with an oracle like this of 40 cards that isn’t an issue.  A lovely, magnetic clasp box holds Continue reading »

Peacock Struts and Heartroots

Another oracle this week: the Gaia’s Vision Oracle (Schiffer, 2016).  This is a photo melange deck, with each image featuring overlaid photography.  The companion book is extremely short, under thirty pages.  It gives just a single paragraph and a keyword for each card.  On the upside, there are quite a few interesting, nature-based spreads.  I Continue reading »

The kit comes in a lovely black box with shiny laminated sections and a good magnetic flap holding it closed.  Inside there Continue reading »
