The book is beautifully written by Farber, whose expertise as a proven psychic is employed in helping readers to get the most out of the tarot. He covers the various methods in utilizing this unique system for gaining insight and wisdom on how to overcome adversity and solving everyday problems in today's chaotic society through the meanings of the 78 tarot cards, which each convey a message to our conscious and unconscious selves.
The manner in which the interpretations of the cards are presented is quite different from what tarot readers are most used to. Instead of the typical upright/reversed meanings practiced by most tarot schools, Farber breaks down the interpretations into three(3) separate levels: The Dream, The Awakening, and The Enchantment. The Dream gives the symbolic meaning via a story-like narrative, The Awakening a straightforward elaboration, and The Enchantment an actual exercise to infuse positive energy into the card representing your life. Of note is the omission of the "reversed" card meaning to allay any fears and negative thoughts often associated with it, which I personally thought was a sincere and nice touch by Farber; a tarot deck which can do you no harm.
Equally impressive is Amy Zerner's colorful and richly detailed artwork, expertly lending credence to Farber's prophetic vision. The cards, although a bit oversized, are sumptuous with an Edwardian flavor that evokes a more simpler, romantic period than today's frenzied pace. The cards are also cleverly color-coded based on suit and healing power: Hearts Purple, Pentacles Green, Wands Red, and Swords Blue. What really sets The Enchanted Tarot's artwork apart from most other tarot sets is that Zerner's illustrations are not merely paintings rendered on a computer. Each image is actually a 2' X 1' fabric collage tapestry painstakingly laid out, and then sewn together in her unique, exquisite style. These gorgeous, award-winning works of art are recognized as paintings by the National Endowment for the Arts. The colorful illustrations are also well represented in the glossy high-quality book, which you don't often find in most tarot/book sets these days.
The conclusion of the book includes a short section on preparing for and doing actual readings, using the three most popular layouts in tarot: The One-Card, Three-Card, and the beloved Celtic Cross spreads. All-in-all, Farber's "The Enchanted Tarot" is a benign and gentle tarot. Zerner's stunning illustrations bring Farber's words to life and vice versa, as they complement each other. "The Enchanted Tarot" may not fall in line with those who might prefer a more traditional approach to the tarot, but with one of the highest accuracy rates in the world amongst living tarot readers, Farber's system should not be taken lightly. Instead, it should be looked upon as a consummate tool for those who are looking for self-help through alternative means. "The Enchanted Tarot" is just too damn good that I'm doing to do something which I've never done before using a 5-star rating system. I'm giving this one 6 stars with the highest recommendations. WELL DONE, MONTE AND AMY!
At first I thought, with a flush of pleasure- "Oh yay! Another Tarot deck for my collection!"....and THEN...I opened them!!! And the artwork took my breath away!
I was, and still am wowed by these cards! To say that they are gorgeous is an understatement...the illustrations are so elegantly made, that anyone who has ever done any sort of fabric based art-form would simply swoon over them! They are created with a combination of quilting and applique work, done so skillfully that they appear to be paintings, with a level of detail that even paintings do not often have. The colors and patterns are pieced together masterfully, and each image is jewel-like in its faceted perfection. Even more amazing is the fact that they are still an effective tool that really speaks to a reader with clarity and authority. Its prettiness as a deck might be a limiting factor for some, but for me, it works very well.
The book is also beautifully written. The images are described and clearly defined with excellent writing, though the printing of the edition of the book I have is not quite up to par. Admittedly the deck itself is a tough act to follow, and this is where the printing REALLY counts. The colors in my edition of the deck are delicate and vivid, and the images are very crisp.
I am actually hunting for a second copy of this deck for my collection, because a pet nibbled on a corner of one of the cards, and this deck deserves to be preserved in pristine condition.
It should be added here that everything I have seen come out of the studios of Amy Zerner & Monte Farber has been first rate, with a distinctive signature style that is peerless. I feel incredibly privileged to have seen some of their diverse creations unfold and shine before my dazzled eyes! I never fail to find inspiration from these two- as an artist/designer, and also as a reader and spiritual practitioner.
