True to its original form, this antique oracle has survived the centuries virtually intact! Once used by cartomants throughout Europe, these simple yet meaningful cards continue to spark intuition and personal insights today. Publisher Review: The Sibilla Oracle Cards may not interest some of you because it's not a standard Tarot. If so, you're going to be missing out on a great combination. Before I explain what I mean by that, let's look at the cards themselves. This deck of cards is smaller in size than most Tarot decks. It's less thick because it has only 52 cards, like a pack of playing cards, and the dimensions of each card are those of a card for playing bridge. That makes this deck much easier to carry around than any deck other than the postage stamp size decks that some may consider too small for practical use. Like a deck of playing card, this oracle is divided into four suits, diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, each with ten pip cards and three court cards. If you're bored, you could play solitaire with this deck. There are two major differences between this deck and regular playing cards. First, every card has a pictorial image. The style appears to be 18th century line drawings overpainted with very intense watercolors so that the lines show through. Most of us are familiar with the pale pastel watercolors of our youth, but these colors feature deep earth tones of green, brown, orange, and surprisingly bright and rich red. The backgrounds are washes of pale yellow. There are no blues to be found. The upper left corner gives an image of the matching standard playing card. . . read more.
