The Celtic Tarot - Julian de Burgh


I found rather few remarks about this deck here. I wonder why is so less popular...

Is anybody else using it?

I, myself, really love his soft beautiful colors.

Pity I don`t have too many threads to read about it. So I make one.

I have this deck and I am quite fond of it. It's not one of my favourite decks but I do like it and I find that the stories and myths that go with the cards are really helpful to their interpretation. I really enjoyed getting to know the myths

I also like the soft, water colours, and some of the artwork is really gorgeous - The 5 of Swords card has always been my favourite because it is related to my favourite celtic myth from way before I got the deck.

The only downside to this deck that I have found is that the cards don't contain much symbolism or details especially the court cards. I think that this would be ok for someone who liked simplicity in a deck rather than lots of imagery and details.

Overall though, I like the artwork and the colours and the simplicity does have it's own charm and appeal.

This deck is out of print now but it's my favorite. There is nothing elaborate about this deck, no flashy colors, no spectacular backs etc but I like it's simplicity and it shuffles softly.

Aha, so just because the pictures on the cards are too simple this deck is not so much used...Strange, I found it quite expressive, without knowing anything about the legends behind.

For some reason it is really appealing to me and now I realize the strange fact that I don`t need the symbols so much, but more to be really fond of the art itself.
