The Fantastic Menagerie Tarot Kit: Based on the Incredible Animal Illustrations of JJ Grandville, by Karen Mahony, Alex Ukolov, and Sophie Nussle. A bluebird dreams of her long lost love. A family of bees gather to enjoy bread and honey. Two cats, attired in evening-wear, dance on a rooftop below a full moon... The much-loved animal fantasy illustrations of Victorian artist J.J. Grandville take on new life in this glorious and uniquely beautiful tarot. The fully-illustrated, full-color 78-card deck features a magical cast of anthropomorphic figures. The deck follows the well-known Rider Waite Smith pattern, and is easy to read, evocative and witty. There is also a delightful companion book by Sophie Nussle, which includes keywords for beginners and detailed ideas and new spreads to stimulate more experienced readers. The book also features sample readings by Paula Goodman Wilder, singer with the San Francisco opera and well known in the tarot community for her melodramatic, irreverent but oh-so-accurate reading style. All in all a tarot deck that's not only beautiful, but has its own wickedly funny flair.
