Praise for the Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot deck...
I just finished giving a very close look at the Golden Age of Hollywood Deck. I love it. It's fun and clever but nonetheless has a whole hell of a lot going on behind the scenes. This is particularly on display with Ten
of Pentacles - more going on than meets the eye. In any case, I smiled my way through the entire deck. I hadn't intended to buy this deck but now I'm so glad I did. - Elis Caldwell
This would be a "must have" deck for me. Beautiful artwork - a wonderful period in cinema to capture for the tarot - BRILLIANT! - Linda Hanley
This is a wonderful deck of images taken from unforgettable film moments of Hollywood, whether it is an actor, a role, or a Tinsel Town factoid. If you are anywhere near to being a film fan, you are going to LOVE this deck! - Mark Miller
This is an enchanting Deck! - Helene Martz
If you like tarot, you will love this deck - it is not a passing novelty deck - Tidal Ashburn
I wanted to personally thank you for creating such an exquisitely designed deck - Monte Burns
So I just don't have enough good things to say about this deck... I was breathlessly awaiting it's arrival when I ordered it from the game crafter when it was released and have to say it was totally worth the wait!!!! - Ashley Nicole
I've only just discovered your deck Lorelei and I LOVE it - Mary Collin
Created by Lorelei Douglas in 2013 using Corel Painter 12, The Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot escaped the notice of most cartomancers, possibly due to lack of a dedicated website, publicity or reviews. In fact, had I not stumbled on this colorful, ingenious deck at TheGameCrafter.com, I probably wouldn’t be here telling you about it! Pairings like The King and I’s Yul Brynner as The Patriarch, Charlton Heston’s Ben Hur as The Chariot, Ray Bolger’s Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz as The Hanged Man, Death of a Salesman as the 10 of Wands, Gone with the Wind as the 8 of Cups, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? as the 9 of Swords—result in truly brilliant cinematic associations.
Marrying an existing system or set of themes with Tarot (in this case, movies and all the characters, motifs and even songs) expands on both, offering additional insights into the human condition and correlations that can be drawn upon during intuitive readings or meditation. Seven of the Major Arcana cards are renamed, as are the Aces (now titled “Birth”) and the Court Cards (Page, Knight, Queen and King morph into Magic, Focus, Glory and Power). Four optional Veto card round out the 82 cards (they’re sort of like “Yield” or “Stop” signs from the Universe), and a printable .pdf companion guide provides keywords and the inspiration for each card. Movie lovers (especially for films made between 1920 and 1960), pop culture enthusiasts and Tarotists yearning for a fresh, smart take on the cards will likely appreciate and enjoy The Golden Age of Hollywood Tarot. - Review by Janet Boyer (http://witchesandpagans.com/pagan-culture-blogs/sacred-symbols/5-overlooked-tarot-decks-that-deserve-closer-attention.html)
