Deck of Heroes Tarot by Richard ShadowFox

Deck of Heroes

Complete with instruction book and Schiffer box, this 78-card deck features at least one male hero on each card. From knights to scoundrels, these images are sure to get your imagination rushing in many directions. This is a deck sure to please any collector or romance addict.

The artist did a wonderful job with the imagery of this deck. It’s more than a deck of men. The settings are very interesting. Some cards are on the dark side, but I find this enriches the images. The card backs are different but entrancing - almost pulling you into its puzzle of lavender.

The deck is based on the traditional tarot card meanings, but this is not a good choice for a new tarot reader.  While some of the cards are easily read, some may leave you confused about its representation of the usual card meaning.

For me, this is more of a deck for the sake of art rather than tarot reading. I would recommend this deck to collectors, art enthusiasts, and writers (especially romance writers.)

Purchase your deck at SchifferBooks.
