This book was purchased for a friend as I already had a copy of it. This is one of the most beautiful books about Goddesses I've purchased to date. I've purchased many, many books about Goddesses, but this one had some of the most beautiful pictures, etc. in it.

Product Description

Illicit love, madness, betrayal--it isn’t always good to be the queen

Marie Antoinette, Anne Boleyn, and Mary, Queen of Scots. What did they have in common? For a while they were crowned in gold, cosseted in silk, and flattered by courtiers. But in the end, they spent long nights in dark prison towers and were marched to the scaffold where they surrendered their heads to the executioner. And they are hardly alone in their undignified demises. Throughout history, royal women have had a distressing way of meeting bad ends--dying of starvation, being burned at the stake, or expiring in childbirth while trying desperately to produce an heir. They always had to be on their toes and all too often even devious plotting, miraculous pregnancies, and selling out their sisters was not enough to keep them from forcible consignment to religious orders. From Cleopatra (suicide by asp), to Princess Caroline (suspiciously poisoned on her coronation day), there’s a gory downside to being blue-blooded when you lack a Y chromosome. Kris Waldherr’s elegant little book is a chronicle of the trials and tribulations of queens across the ages, a quirky, funny, utterly macabre tribute to the dark side of female empowerment. Over the course of fifty irresistibly illustrated and too-brief lives, Doomed Queens charts centuries of regal backstabbing and intrigue. We meet well-known figures like Catherine of Aragon, whose happy marriage to Henry VIII ended prematurely when it became clear that she was a starter wife--the first of six. And we meet forgotten queens like Amalasuntha, the notoriously literate Ostrogoth princess who overreached politically and was strangled in her bath. While their ends were bleak, these queens did not die without purpose. Their unfortunate lives are colorful cautionary tales for today’s would-be power brokers--a legacy of worldly and womanly wisdom gathered one spectacular regal ruin at a time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Tragic Deaths Are Not Humorous
I wasn't expecting a dry tome, but I did anticipate much more factual detail.The text was laced with feeble attempts at humor which were nothing more than a gloating mockery of royal women oppressed by patriarchal societies.I did not find their untimely and often slow, painful deaths to be a source of amusement.The ludicrous multiple-choice quizzes were rotten cherries on top of a stale, rancid cake.Ms. Waldberr's misogyny is particularly disturbing from a female author.I am sorry I purchased this book.It was a waste of my time and money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
Anyone interested in royalty of any era, the history of any culture, or the weirdness of human experience will enjoy this book.The little vignettes, 1-3 pages each, are well-written and get quickly to the point.It's very interesting to see the similarities between women of vastly different cultures and times.There are even quizzes!A fun read and a nice little reference.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dubious Collection
I like reading about royalty, as well as about history.I especially like reading about royal women who made a difference and royal women who made mistakes while in power.What I do not like reading is women getting credit for all the good that they do, while their mistakes are blamed on the men in their lives.This is what I was left with after reading "Doomed Queens" by Kris Waldherr.

"Doomed Queens" is supposed to be a collection of fifty queens who met untimely or unseemly ends.However, some women on the list were not royal at all at the time of their death (Diana Spencer) or ever (Eva Peron), and it seems that Waldherr simply went by a "wow" factor.In fact, sometimes I was not sure at all how the author picked the subjects.Some were obvious: Cleopatra, Marie Antoinette, Alexandra Romanov, Anne Boleyn, while others were not: Jane Seymore (died of childbirth complications), Eva Peron (cancer), Catherine of Aragon (cancer).Princess Grace of Monaco, the reigning Monegasque monarch who died of a in a car crash caused by a stroke, was not even mentioned, while Peron was.

The author's approach to each case was very casual and rather modern, with a "cautionary note" at the end of each case, which was supposed to be humorous, but which I found annoying and out of place.The history of each "doomed" woman was very rudimentary, and took up about two pages (which can tell you about how thorough it is).The writing was lax and looked like it belonged in a gossip magazine instead of a book.With the author's personal conclusions on the "doomed queens," the book itself started to resemble a teen magazine more than anything else.

I would not recommend this book unless you're trying to get your catatonic teenage daughter to get some semblance of an interest in history.What could have been an easy and interesting read turned into an annoying waste.It is a very short work that is quick to read; then again there is nothing really to learn there: indeed, Wikipedia would make for a more interesting and informative read than this.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ahigh schoolhistory paper with pencil sketches and clip art
I have seldom flung a book from me in disgust, but this unreadable conglomeration of horrendous prose and journeyman illustration pushed me to it. Larded with more clip art than a scrap booker's baby album andspread with full-page drawings in the soft line manner of the original "Joy of Sex" pencil sketches, it pads out the postcard length (admittedly factual) stories of these ladies across vast stretches of wasted paper. There is a bizarre combination of pompous vocabulary and familiar narrative style: "As Queen Artemisia was denounced as a tyrant because she brown-nosed King Xerxes of Persia despite the wishes of her people."Michael Farquar,Eleanor Herman, Tony Perrottet, and Karl Shaw are all far better at this sort of thing.
Frankly you can get more facts, better writing, and finer art than this book using Google and Wiki.

1-0 out of 5 stars Electronic edition a let down
This book was badly let down by whomever converted it to electronic form. It is a light weight history of women 'queens' each covered in a a couple of pages. Whilst being an interesting read, without the accompanying drawings, pictures and little 'death style' icons it looses all effect. The formatting is atrocious, with chapters, paragraphs and even sentences being split badly.

If one is interested in this book, I would recommend getting a hard copy. Having the paperback at half the price of the kindle edition and without any of the above issues, would mean a throughly enjoyable read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story
This book had spectacular illustrations and even though I own borzoi, you don't have to own them to appreciate how lovely this book is.I read it to my class of inner city special education students and they were very sensitive to the plight of the boy in the story.They learned about the culture in Russia at the time, the emotional struggle of the boy and they thoroughly enjoyed the story. It teaches compassion and leaves the reader feeling uplifted at the end of the story.The students ask me to read it to them often, something they do not do with many other books. A very good story for all ages.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Wolfhound
The Wolfhound is the story of a young boy who finds a lost Borzoi dog, and returns it to the Tzar at great personal risk. This story teaches kindness, integrity & courage.Despite the bland review given to the book 'officially', it is books like this one that, taken as a steady diet in a child's youth, develop character traits much desired in people!Children raised on stories such as this (with BEAUTIFUL illustrations) will not likely be found mistreating animals, & integrity and respect for life will become ingrained in their hearts! My children LOVED this book,it is one of our treasures! It encourages a love of good art in addition to the character building attributes of books like this.To label this story 'weak' is both short-sighted and ill-informed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magic!
This book is a must for borzoi lovers of all ages. The story is simple and touching. And the lovely illustrations capture the gentle beauty and magic of this very special breed--right down to the borzoi's intelligent, loving gaze.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Wolfhound
A wonderful,simple story of peasant boy that saves dog owned by aristocrat and the boy's reward.The illustrations are absolutely luminous and well worth the low price of the book.If you collect children's books, dogbooks, or want a first dog book for a child, buy this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book
There are a couple of elements missing from the retelling of this myth, but the illustrations are beautiful and breathtaking, filled with color and boldness. I also like the fact that Persephone came up with an solution, instead of having Zeus step in and decide her fate. Overall a great book for a Greek myth or H and P collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mythology in a Children's Book.
Kris Waldherr's picture book retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth is beautiful, both in language and illustration. Waldherr is able to take what is essentially a story of kidnap and turn it into a lovely story that deals with both the relationship between husband and wife and mother and daughter. Her language is flowery and appeals to both adults and children and the illustrations are just beautiful. I will be keeping this book for my own children.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely art and a clever Persephone
Kris Waldherr, famous for her beautiful artwork as seen in _The Book of Goddesses_ and _The Goddess Tarot_ sets her pen and paintbrush to the legend of Demeter and Persephone, with predictably lovely results.This is a G-rated and relatively gentle retelling of the story in which the young Persephone is taken away to the underworld to be the bride of Hades, god of death, causing her mother's mourning and bringing on winter until a compromise can be reached.I especially liked the fact that Waldherr made Persephone smart rather than passive, thinking up the solution by which she could please both mother and husband.And, like I said, it's relatively gently told.The scene where Hades's chariot bursts up from the earth is a little scary-looking, but Hades turns out to not be a bad guy in the end.A beautiful book for kids who like mythology.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Bountiful Review for Harvest
This book is a wonderful story about a young girl and her garden. She shares the hard work that it took to grow a magnificent and bountiful garden. She tells the story as she harvests the fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. At the end the mother and daughter store the harvested produce for use later that year. Now that all the hard work has been finished, everyone can rest, including the garden. The pictures in the book are elaborately colorful and have a lot of details, such as the cat making it onto every page the girl is on. I believe this book to be an asset to the classroom that should be shared with students right before Thanksgiving Break.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Bountiful Book
This is an exquisite book and I am amazed that I am the first person to review it. I hope this will encourage people to buy it because it is too lovely to be missed. The talented Kris Waldheer has maintained her history of excellence in the beautiful seasonal illustrations and in the simple but atmospheric text.It is a short story, almost like a thanksgiving ode that takes place over the course of a day in autumn when a little girl and her mother harvest the garden they have been tending all summer. They work together to can and bake and hang flowers and herbs for drying. She reflects over the careful work they did from seed packet to canning jar. Herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers overflow from the bountiful illustrations and offer a sweet nostalgic feeling that is perfect storytime fare for the autumn months. There is a subtle feeling of the changing of the seasons and a comforting feeling of the natural cycle of Nature. This is a book that opens the world of the quiet thrills of garden and kitchen and introduces it to children in such an inviting way that it could very well help create a life-long appreciation for gardening, home crafts and Nature that will serve them in so many ways. Don't miss it.It is a quiet little gem with excellent values. ... Read more

Product Description
Filamena Ziani is the much younger sister of the most famous courtesan in sixteenth-century Venice, Tullia Ziani. Orphaned as an infant, Filamena has come of age bent like a branch to her sister's will, sheltered and lonely in the elegant but stifling confines of their palazzo by the sea. Then a dark-haired stranger offers a gift that will change the course of her life forever: a single ripe plum, and an invitation to walk along the lover's path, wherever it may lead.

The Lover's Path, a moving tale of forbidden love, is a feminist epic told in multiple layers. Through a novel combination of Filamena's narrative, famous allegorical love stories from history and mythology, sumptuously ornate illustrations, and "actual" letters to and from Filamena that must be opened to be read, Filomena's path is beautifully described and, finally, stunningly revealed.

Praised by The New York Times Book Review for her "quality of myth and magic," Waldherr brings to life a remarkable period in Venetian history. Her glorious celebration of romance, the feminine spirit, and the power of love to transform will inspire and move readers everywhere. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A feast for the senses
THE LOVER'S PATH is a visual and literary feast. It's a beautiful object, a full-colour illustrated picture book for adults, enclosing a very moving love story set in Renaissance Venice. The star-crossed lovers are a celebrated courtesan's virginal and over-protected young sister and a cardinal's illegitimate son. Scattered throughout the book are envelopes that open to reveal love letters and Tarot cards, maps and alchemical symbols. The pages are edged in gilt. The lovers in the book are linked mythically and thematically to the archetypal lovers on the Lover's Path: Dante and Beatrice, Isis and Osiris, Tristan and Isolde, Orpheus and Eurydice, and ultimately Eros and Psyche. It's a timeless love story presented in a beautiful package that can live on your coffee table forever. It reminded me a lot of Erica Jong's Serenissima except without the explicit sex--and the eros is more haunting in that it remains in reader's imagination. If you love Venice and women's history, you're in for a treat.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Lover's Path
There's nothing I enjoy more than reading about 16th c Venice.But Imagine reading a book written by a person who actually lived in those days!Filamena Ziani (or Filamela: nightingale) was a female artist of16th c Venice.This is the first actual English publication of her work , which was at the time, dedicated to her patroness,Felicita Lando.As a female musician-singer-writer, Filamena's work never received the recognition due.Kris Waldherr, through her enchanting illustrations has magically recreated this written work of art, by the nightingale and `Virtuosa' of the times- someone who actually existed back then and even has a palazzo named after her!

This story or `fiabla' of forbidden love, is about a young Filamena who is raised by her older sister Tullia, a notable Courtesan. Tullia wants to shield Filamena from the world's cruelties and the pain and torments that love can bring.One evening while her sister is entertaining noble society gentlemen, Filamena is invited to sing in the background.There she spots the man who was to become the love of her life...her forbidden love.

This novel is so beautifully created that you can just get lost in the splendor of the artwork.Every single page is designed to enchant.There are letters carefully tucked in envelopes and beautiful historical maps, card-size illustrations (the basis for the Love Tarot series) that can all be found within this splendid book.But not only is this book breathtaking and fulfilling to the senses as is, the story itself is incredibly captivating.

At the beginning, I read along for the sake of romance and getting lost in a world of a different era...but as I kept reading, I discovered that this was not an ordinary love story.I was surprised to find mystery, intrigue, and a twist of fate that I really did not expect.I enjoyed this book through and through and the fact that the story was written by someone who actually lived in a place and time that fascinates me makes me feel like I found a treasure.

In addition, the prelude to the Lover's Path is writen by Marina Rossetti, the curator of 'Museo di Palazzo Filomela (curator of the Museum of Filomela's Palace).Here, she briefly describes the life, work, art, and documentation supporting this historical figure, time and place.

Breathtaking, brilliant, interesting, interactive, historical - A splendidly precious creation.

Whether you immerse yourself into the reading, the history, the artwork, or just for the browsing- The Lover's Pathis a definite conversation piece.This book is a real gem.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book fit for kings and queens
You may have seen images from The Lover's Path, and read descriptions of it, but that won't prepare you for the impact of holding and opening this astonishing object for the first time. I've never seen anything like this book before. It's so much more than the sum of its parts - and heaven knows, the parts are absorbing enough in themselves. Far more than an illustrated book, it offers its reader an experience that's not just literary, not just visual, but tactile as well. Reading the book involves not only attending to the words and images on the page, but physically unfolding a letter inserted among the pages, or removing Tarot cards from an envelope. And these things feel so right in their context. As I read, I'm conscious of the feel of the pages and the curiously solid, comforting weight of the book, in a way that isn't distracting but seems an integral part of the process - an imaginative extension of the reading experience. It's intensely personal. I know that this is a commercially produced book; but it feels like a hand-crafted private press book feels. It sings quietly in the hands.

I found the book invited me to linger over the illustrations and the beautifully designed pages, rather than rush through the story. I read it slowly, only a chapter at each sitting, immersing myself not only in the world of 16th century Venice, but in the luxurious physical presence of the book and its contents. To own this book is the kind of privilege that once only kings and queens could have known. Here, today, it can be had by anyone for a few dollars.

5-0 out of 5 stars To truly love another ...
Artist/author Kris Waldherr has gifted her readers with a world of mythic proportions in this work. You will feel that you are in sixteenth century Venice, walking along side the famous courtesan Tullia Ziani, and her talented younger sister Filomena - the Nightengale.

Woven into this feminist tale are the romantic myths of Beatrice and Dante, Danae and Zeus, Tristan and Isolde, the swan maiden, Psyche and Cupid, Orpheus and Eurydice, and Isis and Osiris.

Through well written words, stunning graphics, maps and letters - we enter another world, one of beauty and grace, but one that is also inhabited by sorrow and tragedy. As for those letters - in a very unique device, Waldherr presents us with several envelopes containing the letters referred to in her story, as part of the book. The reader is also gifted with the cards drawn for Filomena in a Tarot reading.

From the superb quality of the illustrations, to the gilt edged pages, the wonder maps, and the depth of thought presented here - this is a "must have" book for all who would follow the Lover's Path!

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful in more ways than one
This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen, one of the most romantic, and at the same time contains strong female characters and historical accuracy. As a visual artist myself I know what went into this--years of meticulous research, endless revisions, and a huge wallop of talent. The reproduction is exquisite, leather-bound, gold stamping, and amazing extras like envelopes that open with separate letters that come out. In addition to the gorgeous artwork the story itself is compelling, both sad and hopeful, a moment of respite in our jaded world. Illustrated novels of this quality are hard to find. Take my advice and buy this book; you'll enjoy it and it makes a great present. ... Read more

I've been reading tarot and runes for about ten years. I have changed decks several times through the years as I mature spiritually. My readings are based more on intuitive skills than the medium/method used. I don't go "By the Book."The deckspeaks to me and will communicate traditional meanings as they apply.The Goddess Tarot resonated withme immediately. I planned to read with this deck at an event a month from the time I acquired it and ordered the workbook to help familiarize myself with the author's intent and interpretation. I like the simplicity of theworkbook.It can beused to learn tarot or thisparticular deck as well as a meditation tool or journal.Thethought-provoking questions prompt inner reflection and can help develop intuitive skills. The reader can do the work in order or as cards come up.I haven't written in my copy because I have a feeling I may want to go through it once a year or so. Highlyrecommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Art
A beautifully bound (hardbound), illustrated and written book on goddesses. The only complaint is that I wish there had been a little more information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is.
It's basically a picture book for young people, though your inner child will love it too. Lovely pictures, lots of diversity from different cultures. Some are good alternative to the really negative and sometimes outright abusive messages girls get from patriarchal religions.Young girls are fighting really bad odds if they want love and respect - as well as to develop themselves fully.

From my own experience, I was preached to about gentleness and humility by men who hoarded all power and authority to themselves, who were often very cruel, violentand arrogant to women/girls i knew and controlled and dominated our whole lives. Later on I had this reinforced by Freudian type "analysis", the sexuality I learned, and culture in general. Sometimes it seems like a landslide of sh**t that girls are fighting and we'll never get there, or we have to become like it to resist it (been there, done that.)It can make you crazy fighting the system without support. I had my shreds of hope and dignity from books like these - so thank you to those who wrote them, especially this one for little people. Good for sons too if you're careful not to reverse the pattern of patriarchal religions towards boys.

Beyond the books, though, I really wish with all my heart that women would start creating language and culture that is more respectful and kind to us and our daughters, that we stop feeding our daughters to men's egos (or vice versa.) We need to achieve balanced power in this world, and an equal share of the worlds resources and goods for them.

5-0 out of 5 stars great book
I love it, i just love it!The artwork is extremely beautiful and the content inspires.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice introduction to Goddesses around the world
My scholarly devotion to paganism had once followed a decidely Celtic path.That is until I picked up this book shortly after seeing Waldherr's Goddess Tarot.While it does not give an in-depth treatment of the selected goddesses, it gives you a taste of other traditions. The cultural diversity of this book is responsible for piquing my interest in Tara, Sarasvati, Kali Ma and Quan Yin - goddesses I now hold dear.I also think this would be a lovely book to give to your non-pagan girlfriends who you wish to gently introduce to your beliefs.Worth checking out.

2-0 out of 5 stars skimming the surface
I was very disappointed in the lack of depth of Embracing the GoddessWithin. There is approxamately a paragraph stating the history or outlineof the story concerning each goddess, then another page devoted to a"ritual" to connect with that goddess. I was aching for moresubstance... to use a familiar goddess, Aphrodite, as an example, Waldherrbasically says that she's a greek goddess of romantic love, unwilling wifeof Vulcan, etc. Then the "ritual" is to take a bath inrosepetals. I expected to gain some deeper understanding behind the cultureof each goddess, but it's little more than what you would find in a"mythological encyclopedia." ... Read more

Product Description
A divination tool to connect with guides from the Egyptian pantheon

• A 35-card deck with original artwork by award-winning illustrator Kris Waldherr

• Guidebook includes detailed card interpretations and 8 divinatory spreads

• By the authors of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt: Awakening the Healing Power of the Heart

The Anubis Oracle is a shamanic guide to inner Egypt, a place of mystery, ancestral wisdom, and abiding love that resides within each of us. It is a place where the neteru--the archetypal deities and elemental spirits from the Egyptian pantheon--lead us on our journey of transformation, a journey designed to open our hearts and teach us the inner workings of the soul.

The full-color deck contains a Key Card, a card for each of the 22 deities and 4 elements, and 8 composite cards that portray several deities together. These composites represent 8 major portals of initiation and complex archetypal relationships. The accompanying book provides detailed interpretations for each card and instructions for 8 divinatory spreads that include entering into the mystery, achieving higher love and wisdom, and identifying our sacred purpose. By divining with the neteru, the shaman within awakens. This allows the neteru to reveal the answers we seek in our personal lives and in our interactions with the world by connecting us with the wisdom, guidance, and shamanic mysteries of Egypt that live within us.

5-0 out of 5 stars Egyptian mythology meets the Major Arcana.
Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf draw inspiration on the Egyptian Mythology to create a 35 cards oracle, nicely illustrated by Kris Waldherr.It consists of one Significator card, 22 God cards, 4 Elemental cards, and 8 Special cards.

The cards in this oracle are difficult to handle due to their size, bigger than the standard sized tarot.They are bordered blue, numbered and named in white at the top with key words in white at the bottom, descriptive of each card.

Cards 0 to 21 relate very closely to the 22 cards of the Major Arcana in Tarot as follow:

0. The Dove - 0. The Fool
1. Nekbet-Mother-Mut - I. The Magician
2. Nephthys - II. The High Priestess
3. Isis - III. The Empress
4. Khnum - IV. The Emperor
5. Sphinx - V. The Hierophant
6. Sobek & Horus - VI. The Lovers
7. Sekhmet - VII The Chariot
8. Ma'at - VIII. Strength
9. Thoth - IX. The Hermit
10. Khepera - X. Wheel of Fortune
11. Bast - XI. Justice
12. Anubis - XII. The Hanged Man
13. Osiris - XIII. Death
14. Hathor - XIV. Temperance
15. Set - XV. The Devil
16. Wadjet - XVI. The Tower
17. Sothis - XVII. The Star
18. Khonsu - XVIII. The Moon
19. Amun-Ra - XIX. The Sun
20. Ptah - XX. Judgment
21. Nut and Geb - XXI. The World

Cards 22 to 25 relate to the four elements (fire, air, water and earth) representative on the suits of the Minor Arcana in Tarot.Cards I to VIII, labeled in roman numerals, are special combinations of the "Major Arcana".

Waldherr's Egyptian imagery is stunning in this deck, which make me feel slightly disappointed that the creators of this deck didn't go for a full 78 cards tarot deck, and instead the opted to create an "oracle" version.Still, this is an interesting deck which combines the Major Arcana from tarot with Egyptian mythology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautifully done
I was excited to get this oracle since I have the book it's based on, The Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt, and I love that book.I was not disappointed with this, and I really do feel there is an energy and depth that imbues this that makes it an amazing tool to work with.I've only done a few readings with it for others, but each of those have been extremely powerful.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Anubis Oracle: Fit for a Pharoh
This Anubis Oracle teaches & advices with its artwork(beautiful & mystical) and what you see in these cards. A first-rate Egyptian Oracle, but great for anyone, especially those who love the Egyptian Gods & Goddesses.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for - and I'm hard to please
LOVE LOVE this oracle

Beautiful pictures, well thought out layouts and explanations - these girls know their stuff and get it right.

If you want to make a connection with the Spirit of Ancient Egypt this will get you there

5-0 out of 5 stars Compelling & Relevant!!!
I have eagerly awaited this treasure to arrive and am not disappointed. I have been searching for this "Egyptian vibe" since 1986 with Murry Hope's Cartouche cards. Various tarot decks tried to capture the magic, yet fall short. Then came the "holy grail" of Egyptian divination-Athon Veggi's "Book of Doors" in 1996. The artwork and colors were a little disappointing, however. The Anubis Oracle fulfills all hopes.

Egyptian Magic is lost in the sands of time. Yet, some writings have been translated and the images endure. Its true, this is reconstruction mysticism with a "new age" slant. It is the Egypt I have always imagined. Indeed, it lasted 5000+ years. Most of these images survived and are just as universal today! This may be the closest thing to the origins of the tarot there is. A historic achievement, indeed.

The colors are bright and warm. Children can easily connect with the cards. The archetypes are potent and soothing. Perhaps this deck will open the doorway for a new generation to spend hours in the Egyptian wing at their local museum. Educational and empowering!

5-0 out of 5 stars Lover's Path is a Good Tarot Deck
I really like the fantastic art and imagery on the cards.I paid around $40 for it in a local shop amd see it on Amazon for about $15.Even at $40, it was worth it.I've read the other reviews and agree it's great for relationship questions.

5-0 out of 5 stars great deck imo!
I think the deck is totally awesome.I love them.My GF however does not care for them because the major arcana deviate too much from the norm...the "booklette" stinks if you like to keep those around as i do.consider getting the set with the HB Book in that case for a few bucks more.if you don't use those books coming with the decks then who cares.the art is fantastic

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for all relantionship readings
The author of this deck had taken care ofall the fine details that make a deck not only a work of art, but an excellent instrument for reading. Had been using the deck for relationships readings, of all kind, and the results had been amazing. The myths help improve the metaphors for my consultants reflections. Excellent work. Many empty decks are publish every day, so I feel lucky that this deck is so full of meaning.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Romanticized Tarot
"The Lover's Path Tarot is a tool to examine and improve relationships--whether they be [sic] with yourself, with your beloved, or with the world. Examining our preconceptions about love, the ways we yearn to connect with another, what we desire in a partner, is an act of self-illumination. More importantly, it's one way to take personal responsibility for our lives." - From the Little White Book

According to artist and author Kris Waldherr, relationships mirror our relationship with ourselves, as well as the world at large. In fact, love relationships, she says, can embody our perspective of how the Universe supports and nurtures us.

It is in this spirit that Ms. Waldherr offers The Lover's Path Tarot, a 78-card deck portraying the complex romantic relationships of couples from myth and history. From Cleopatra and Caesar in the Fertility card (Empress) to Romeo and Juliet in Tradition (Hierophant), central themes of devotion, decision, sacrifice and enduring love find expression in the Major Arcana.

The names of each couple are shown within the illustrations of the Majors, and most of the cards have been renamed:

0 Innocence
I Magic
II Wisdom
III Fertility
IV Power
V Tradition
VI Love
VII Desire
VIII Strength
IX Contemplation
X Fortune
XI Justice
XII Sacrifice
XIII Transformation
XIV Balance
XV Temptation
XVI Oppression
XVII Grace
XVIII Illusion
XIX Awakening
XX Judgment
XXI Triumph

The Minor Arcana of The Lover's Path Tarot depicts the progression of a classic love story for each of the four suits:

Cups: Tristan and Isolde - "...lives ruled by extreme emotions such as love, desire, sorrow, yearning and anger."

Staves: Siegfried and Brunnhilde - "...shows how the force of love can spur us to great deeds, making us strong where we were once weak."

Arrows: Cupid and Psyche - "...depicts how love grants wisdom."

Coins: Danae and Zeus - "...depicts the power of the suit of coins to transform lives."

The art, architecture, books and maps of the Italian Renaissance inspired the lovely paintings done by Ms. Waldherr. Using models of friends and associates, the main card art are watercolor underpaintings sealed with acrylic gel medium, with oil paints glazes layered over the top. The decorative borders were painted in gouache on handmade paper.

The 35-page LWB provides upright and reversed meanings for all cards, with brief notations on the correlating myth/history of the couples found on the Majors. Two relationship-oriented spreads are also included.

The two elements I found the most striking in The Lover's Path Tarot is the gorgeous portrayal of the Arrows suit (especially the heart-tipped arrows) and the small elemental painting on the bottom of the Minor cards (e.g. lush leaves for Coins/Earth, starry skies for Arrows/Air and so on.) Another nice touch is a folded pull-out showing five spreads--the "Lover's Path Spreadsheet".

At 4 ¾ x 3 ½ inches, the cards from this deck a more square than most, but although they're wider, smaller hands should have no trouble shuffling the deck (I have small hands and I can shuffle them fine; any bigger, though, and I'd probably have some difficulty). The backs appear fully reversible, but upon closer inspection, the marbling on the background isn't uniform.

I was disappointed to discover that The Lover's Path Tarot did NOT come with a full-size book. Judging by the size and heft of the box, I assumed that this deck came with a companion book. Alas, only a LWB is included in this over-packaged Tarot.

Unfortunately, there is no discussion about the scenes portrayed in the Minor Arcana, which supposedly arise from the components of four specific myths. In addition, Ms. Waldherr doesn't explain why she chose the myths to represent certain Majors (e.g., why Penelope and Odysseus were selected for the Justice card).

Although brief, the upright and reversed meanings in the LWB are surprisingly insightful, for the most part. Although I think The Lover's Path Tarot would be good for relationship readings and perhaps personal meditation, it's not a deck that I would use for reading--especially since I don't resonate with all the romantic drama central to this deck.

However, if you are drawn to dramatic stories of love and loss, and tend to have relationship issues crop up repeatedly in your life, The Lover's Path Tarot may be a great deck for gaining insight. In addition, those who admire Renaissance art will likely want The Lover's Path Tarot as an art deck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lover's Path Review
The packaging is very appealing to me, I like the spread sheet being included, the cards are very good quality in my opinion with the designs appealing to me. The accompanying booklet details the story very well behind the Major Cards & gives a good one of the Minor Cards.Overall I would highly recommend this deck to others but also want to mention that someone totally new to Tarot may find it a bit hard to understand.
I rated this a 5 because I don't find anything about this set that would indicate less mind you the cards are a bit oversized but I don't find it difficult to shuffle them, someone with small hands could.I feel it also important to mention that it will sometime advertise it's hardcover but it is not always hardcover, again I didn't feel this worth rating it less... It's a 5 in my opinion...

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Art
I'm rather new at tarot so the book that accompanies this deck is very helpful. The cards read very well and true. This beautiful deck is especially attractive to people who follow the Goddesses and also has interesting information about them to those who haven't had much exposure to the mythology of the Goddesses.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful deck!
This definitely one of the most cherished decks in my collection! The artwork is stunning & well thought out. Keeping with the Waite-Smith theme is another plus. If you purchase this deck you will not be disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fab deck!
This deck has lovely artwork and is great for the novice as well as the professional reader. The cards are very sturdy and are made from thick paper. Anyone who has a love for the Goddess will appreciate this deck. The cards are a little big, so readers with small hands need to take note of this before purchasing this deck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deck lovers favorite
As a avid deck lover, this deck rules. It is gorgeous. It is easy to use to give readings and the booklet explains a lot. Anyone who loves Goddesses or reveres them will appreciate this deck. Suddenly the divine seems so accessible.
The Major Arcana is 0. Beginnings-Tara,
1. Magic-Isis,
2. Wisdom-Saraswati,
4 Power-Freyja,
7. Movement-Rhiannon,
10. Fortune-Lakshmi,
12.Sacrifice-Kuan Yin,
14. Balance-Yemana,
15. Temptation-Nyai Loro Kidul,
17.The Star-Inanna,
18.The Moon-Diana,
19. The Sun-The Zorya,
20. Judgment-Gwenhwyfar
21. The World-Gaia
After thinking about, I realize this deck is so successful because of the goddesses she chose to portray the major arcana and the pictures accompanying it. The interpretations are cleverly done and well thought out. I recommend it to anyone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but I cannot use it.
Card imagery is very beautiful.

But since my memory is old, remembering a total different story pains me.
And I also cannot connect with this deck sadly. Perhaps because of the pastel colours of every card, I can't really feel anything different.

I have done readings with this card. After looking up the LWB, I find they are accurate and practical. They tend not like other tarot cards to give you unexpected insights, they focus on giving advice like how to solve problem. A usable tarot for the practicals, but not for personal growth.

5-0 out of 5 stars A museum in the form ofcards
Reading through these cards is like reading through history and enjoying a museum at the same time. I loved it. The box cover is a rich red, not tacky. This would be a lovely gift item as it comes with a sumptuous art book inside and scroll and cards. This deck might sell out on Valentines day for that reason.
Once again, this deck illustrates Waldherr's gorgeous art and her art ability. The cards are cleverly interpreted like the Goddess deck.
Major arcana is renamed as usual: O-Innocence, 1 Magic, 2 Wisdom, 3 Fertility, 4 Power, 5 Tradition 6 Love, 7 Desire 8 Strength, 9 Contemplation, 10 Fortune, 11 Justice, 12 Sacrifice, 13 Transformation, 14 Balance, 15 Temptation, 16 Oppression, 17 Grace, 18 Illusion, 19 Awakening, 20 Judgement, 21 Triumph. Again a nice reinvention of the Major arcana just like the Goddess deck.
Relationship cross is a tarot spread given in the LWB. Burning question, Lovers path, Dueling path and Celtic cross are given on the yellowed scroll with rich red print. Nice work. She pairs famous couples for each Major arcana card.Magic is Merlin and Vivianne from King Arthur legend. Variety of cultures are represented here. I know I will use and love this deck. I have been unable to put it down since I got them! I recommend this to people familiar with the tarot and art lovers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best tarot deck on Amazon!
The book is full color, and contains a COMPLETE STORY about each card.For example the Lovers card is Romeo and Juliet, another card is the story of Cleopatra, etc.Each story is very well written and engaging plus contains a close-up color picture of the main characters in the card.At the back are multiple new spreads and a quick reference for each suit.

In addition you get a 40 page little white book containing short descriptions and the character names contained on the card.

The cards are thick, extra large and full of life.This is by far, the coolest set of Tarot cards on Amazon.Nothing else compares at this price.You'll be awed once you open the package and see what's inside.Gorgeous, and reads well!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous deck, excellent book!
This deck and book set is positively gorgeous, presented well in its packaging--just superbly done in every way. The book is filled with beautiful stories that give the tarot reader so much inspiration from which to do readings and gain insight. I've been collecting tarot decks for 20+ years, and this is by far one of the very best I've ever seen in terms of the quality of the art work, packaging, and accompanying book. I highly recommend it to all tarot enthusiasts; you MUST add this one to your collection. It is truly a masterpiece.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely and Different
The artwork for this set if beautiful, and it also has some of the finest packaging I've seen for a normally priced tarot set.(Rather than high-priced collectables.)

I think that the retitling of the cards gives them a great deal of freedom with the selection of appropriate images for each of the Majors.

I like this deck, but I could do with just a bit more analysis of each card; yes, I'm an intermediate reader who likes their hand held a little bit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Love Stories and Myths Provide Basis for this Lovely TarotDeck
After purchasing this deck to help a friend tool out her relationship difficulty, I quickly became mesmerized by not only the beautiful artwork depicted on each of the "Lover's Path Tarot", but the extremely satisfying manner in which creator Kris Waldherr has interspersed important legendary love stories from history, myth and literature with important emotional markers to mirror our own inner relationships to underline and further illuminate the Tarot's traditional archetypical connotation.

Each of the 22 Major Arcana represents a famous pair of lovers.Instead of the usual tarot name of the card, the actual emotion corresponding to the traditional tarot symbolism or story of progressive life lessons simplifies and at the same time helps one to remember the actual meaning of the card by remembering the moral of the story signified by the featured couple.For example, Major Arcana card number XIII Death, usually perceived as a frightening card in a reading, is denoted in this deck as the emotion Transformation and embodied by the relationship between Persephone and the god of the Underworld Pluto,The significance of something having to die in order for change to occur becomes poignantly realistic while recalling that Persephone had to allow herself to transform through her 6 months in Hades with Pluto in order to be reborn each Spring.Equally compelling is Waldherr's number XXI World card.Entitled "Triumph" it utilizes the story of Ariadne and Dionysus to elucidate the meaning of the card.Ariadne, abandoned by Theseus after helping him through the Labyrinth, finds greater fulfillment with the god of wine on Naxos.One truly gets the feeling of expansion, hope and a triumph over difficulties that the traditional card represents.

Waldherr's treatment of the 56 minor Arcana cards greatly aids the reader to a more significant understanding and recognition of the meanings behind the appearance of these cards in a reading. Each of the 14 cards in each distinct suit (here, cups represent cups, staves represent rods, arrows represent swords and coins represent pentacles) is used to milestone events in four major stories affiliated with four of the Major Arcana cards.The cups suit (water) details the story of Tristan and Isolde, two lovers definitely influenced by the cups suit traditional theme of a strong emotive influence---Desire.Each beautifully rendered depiction helps the reader to remember the part of the story that the card traditionally and archetypically characterizes. Knowing the story allows the reader to respond to the emotions evoked and to put together a mini-story that facilitates superior spiritual and emotional insight.The Stave ( Rod-fire) suit retells the action story of Sigfried and Brunnhilde--Strength.The story of Cupid and Psyche -- Awakening (the Sun)brings the intellect suit of Arrows (Swords- air) to life while demystisizing some of this suits bleaker cards. The love between Danae and Zeus (Fortune- Wheel of Fortune) exemplifies the suit of Coins (Pentacles - Earth) where the best the world can offer is shown to transform one's life.

In addition to full page and color representations of all 78 cards, the author provides a chapter in the acoompanying bookwhere she explores different spreads designed specifically for particular queries.An addendum completes the author's text, offering a quick, easy-to-read table of both the major Arcana, complete with small photos of each card for easy remembrance and cross-reference, major themes and the paired lovers. Resources are made available for those who want to further their reading about the included paired lovers or about tarot in general.

Bottom line:This exquisite deck adds dimension to the usual Rider-Waite Smith symbolism which still lurks at the heart of each of the cards.The use of the paired lovers not only provides extra visual splendor, but enhances one's initial response to each of the cards in a reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars Playing Cards Playing Cards Have Never Been So Interesting
With Kris Waldherr's Doomed Queens Royal Playing Cards, you not only get an actual playing card deck, but also some fascinating historical tidbits on female royalty (save the Kings).

Clubs, hearts, diamonds, spades...they're all here, as are the Ace-10 cards and Jack, Queen and King. But what's different with this deck of playing cards is each features a name and image of a deceased royal, as well as the date they passed on, mode of death and a brief bio.

Several two-sided graphics key cards are also tucked inside the Doomed Queens Royal Playing Cards, so if you want to know what that crowned skull symbol means (beheaded), or caduceus (died of illness) or spider (suicide)--all you need to do is look on the handy key card.

From Jane Grey to Josephine, Thessalonike to Eva Peron, the next timeyou play poker, you can also get an education--IF you use the Doomed Queens Royal Playing Cards by Kris Waldherr. (And forget common playing card packs: this set comes in a handsome flip-top box! Can you say "birthday gift" or "Christmas present"?)
