Deck Review- The Silver Era Tarot

Remember the good old days when black and white film was king, a time of those wonderful, lovable characters like Harold Lloyd, Charlie Chaplain and even Our Gang ruled the silver screen?...well today I'm reviewing a wonderful deck that takes us back to a time of black and white images, when things were simple and the images were comforting and familiar...introducing the Silver Era Tarot.
The Silver Era Tarot, created by Aunia Kahn and authored by Russel J. Moon, is simply wonderful to behold because unlike silent films, she has added a little something extra, a dash of color on each card. Each card has one rich hue added to it's image that enhances the card's meaning beautifully. It could be a bouquet of flowers, the pinafore on a dress or a richly colored hat... the color simply makes the cards pop!

This deck is comprised of seventy-eight wonderfully artistic cards that measure 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 2"  and come in a sturdy keepsake box and a ninety-six page LWB (little white book) that describes each card and its meaning upright and reversed along with a small thumbnail image of each card. The card stock is perfect for shuffling and if your deck seems a bit sticky, simply wipe them down with a furniture polish wipe and they will nearly shuffle themselves.
I just can't say enough about the artistry of the Silver Era Tarot, with it's new-age interpretation of classical ideas expressed with artistic breakthroughs in new bold and groundbreaking ideas as it brings tarot into the 21st Century for older generations to rediscover and expose to a whole new generation of learners and thinkers. It would make a wonderful deck for beginners and experienced alike.
