This deck is one I was really excited to order. It looked so modern, so stylish, so funky, and full of fun! I just had to have it. I didn’t realise at the time of ordering it that it was a Thoth style deck. But that doesn’t matter, I still love it!!!

Too often we are told that magic and wisdom belong only to the forgotten forests, the places untouched by human hands, and to ages long lost to memory. I reject this idea. I look around my world, and I see the beauty, the wonder, the magic in the metropolis, the power under the pavement. I created The Urban Tarot upon the belief that the ideas and truths referred to by the Tarot are eternal and universal, even if many of the images and symbols that have become connected to the cards no longer resonate with a modern reader. What once might have seemed familiar to the layperson of centuries ago is now arcane and confusing. The Urban Tarot is an attempt to reclaim the power of that old magic and bring it within the reach of the 21st century seeker of truth.robinscottart.com
The card stock is amazing and it shuffles really well. The only thing I have against this deck is the size of the cards. They are tall and they dont fit my hands very well.
The Guidebook is fabulous! It explains the imagery/symbolism and gives detailed meaning for each card.
