Another Tarot blast from the past, the Chinese Tarot by Jui Guoliang was first available in 1989.
Over at Tarot Passages, Joan Cole shares this review: "Designs based upon the symbolism, legends, beliefs, manners and customs of ancient China". The deck is enlivened by gods, demons and ghosts from the Chinese pantheon, such as the Heavenly Twins and the God of Longevity, and beautified by other traditional painting subjects, such as the "four gentlemen" (the plum, orchid, chrysanthemum and bamboo)."
The Tarot Deevah says: " I find it colorful, inspirational, workable, and a joy to use. "
Some reviews from Amazon offer:
"Jiu's expert implementation of flowing vibrant colors, fine lines and subtle shading resulted in 78 breathtaking mini-paintings"
"The artwork is outstanding... if you like the Asian style... you'll love these cards."
"Guoliang's renditions of Tarot symbolism in Chinese traditional style literally brought tears to my eyes."
This deck is being reprinted for 2013. Are you excited?
