The Fairy Tale Tarot is a solo endeavor by talented artist Lisa Hunt.
The cards are inspired by European short stories originating in the middle ages that were handed down from generation to generation, and later published
by The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson.
The deck is brilliantly crafted in water colors and soft pencils. The cards are easy to read and the symbols easy to identify even if some of the major arcana names have been changed to fit the fairy tale motif.
For example the World card is now fittingly "Happily Ever After".
