HEZICOS TAROT REVIEW
The Hezicos Tarot is a unique deck that is based on fairytales and was created by hand using soft but precise watercolors. The artist is following the tradition of Rider-Waite to make it simple to use for those who are new. This gorgeous, borderless stunning deck is now fully completed and available in a premium self-published edition that includes the book’s 56-page bound edition.
The box the booklet and cards are housed in is made to look like a box that is wrapped in twine. It features a faerie-like design in the form of a postage stamp the faerie is a winged bird holding the yellow flower across the twine at the top left corner, and a second Faerie emerges from the wrapping on the lower right corner, holding an open book in his left hand. At the point where the twine joins, there is a label that has the title for the card deck. The box is extremely sturdy and has a lift off the top. It is a masterpiece of quality!
