Reviews

"Overall, this is an interesting tarot, offering some insights that are both traditional and novel in their take on how we may find wisdom in the technology we surround ourselves with. " --Taroflexions blog
"The innovation in this deck is a delight. The creators dig deeply into the possibilities of a Steampunk deck and deliver a vision that is functional as well as thoughtful. The deck provides a unique and passionate representation of its theme. If you are a fan of Steampunk, this Tarot may truly delight you." --Aeclectic Tarot blog
"...this is not the best deck for "quickie" readings. Instead, make a pot of tea, hunker down for the evening and let yourself get lost in this deck, for within it is a whole world just waiting to be explored." --Daily Tarot Girl blog
