Mar 31, indiefishsteak rated it it was amazing. It includes advice on preparing for a reading, how to read cards without using someone else's definitions, advice on working with fairies, and a good deal of other things that make you look beyond using a deck and a book. I'm still trying to get the hang of it, but I really enjoy the deck and its illustrations. They are beautifully done and presented in a great hard cover book and quality cards.

I bought my first one several years ago, near Samhain, and I completely fell in love with it. Unlike Tarot cards or other oracles, the beautiful cards and the splendid writing by Jessica MacBeth elevate the experience to one that is very personal and illuminating.
The cards and the fey whom they represent quickly became part of my life and opened a new and amazing world for me. I cannot recommend thi I'm happy to say that I own at least three copies of this fine set and have gifted severa more. I cannot recommend this product enough for both the lover of oracles but for those wanting to experience the true side of Faery. Jan 03, carlie rated it it was amazing Shelves: new-age-magick.
Of course the artwork is amazing, and the oracle cards are spot on for personal readings readings for others, not so much. But the real surprise here is how well the book is written. I like reading this oracle book as much as I like spreading the cards. Just reading the book opens up my mind to all of the hidden potential in the cards.
It allows for a much more intuitive approach to the cards, which leads to much easier interp Of course the artwork is amazing, and the oracle cards are spot on for personal readings readings for others, not so much.

All's fair in love and faerie oracles! View 2 comments. Mar 07, Abbie Sonntag rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites-i-have-read. Love this! A great help for me. May 25, Etta rated it it was amazing. Both the book and deck are stunning works of art. I love to just LOOK at the cards to rest my mind and inspire imagination.

This is a beautiful hardcover book, and 66 gorgeously illustrated faerie oracle cards that come in a nice little box. I got them a long time ago, as a high school graduation gift from my best friend in, because I used to collect faerie figures and prints, and tarot cards.
I found them recently when I was going through old boxes of books and enjoyed looking at the book as well as the cards. The artwork is done by Brian Froud, who is extremely talented. A legendary faerie artist. His work is beaut This is a beautiful hardcover book, and 66 gorgeously illustrated faerie oracle cards that come in a nice little box. His work is beautiful.
I have a few of his books, my favorite was Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book, which I thought was real for a little while. I was so disappointed, not to mention embarrassed when I found the truth out. Well, at least I'm in good company, those photos fooled Sir Conan Doyle too. My 8-year-old knew right away they weren't real pictures, and was shocked I thought they could be real.
I blame the internet. Kids are so jaded these days. I will always hope for and believe in faeries. My daughter was as enchanted by the artwork on this set, as I was back in when I got my set and as I still am to this day She is too young. I believe they hold power and energy and she is too young. They have given me guidance and luck and I'm excited to be using them again. Jan 09, Kelly rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourites. My first ever set of cards, and what a place to start! I picked these up by chance upon recognising Froud's work, and they've been so chatty ever since.
The book packaged with the set really gets you into the spirit of inviting the Fae in, offers helpful definitions for each card, but repeatedly encourages you to think for yourself and seek your own interpretations. Even if you're not into reading cards yourself, this is still a beautiful piece, and the artwork is so familiar and essentially Fro My first ever set of cards, and what a place to start!
Even if you're not into reading cards yourself, this is still a beautiful piece, and the artwork is so familiar and essentially Froud that I would encourage any fan of his work to add it to their collection. May 08, Penny C. I also have the deck, but more for the art.
What can I say—Froud is a wizard! I'm giving this book two stars because what the author writes is very much at odds with what Froud has said about Faeries.
The writing's not bad, in fact, the sheer positivity of it is rather uplifting … But then there's that thing I just mentioned …. May 15, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: tarot-and-divination. Brian Froud's images are just gorgeous! I am a huge fan of his work so I may be biased! Card stock is really thin though and although it rifle shuffles beautifully, don't cringe! I may not do that very much because I am not sure this deck would hold up well long term if I did.
The readings from this deck have been on point and a bit cheeky. Jun 10, Evie rated it it was amazing. This isn't a 'book'; it's a tarot deck unless you count the description book that tells you what each of the faeries are. A friend got this for me for my b-day last year and it's fantastic! Great for any lover of faeries and fantasy.
Brian Froud and Jessica Macbeth’s The Faeries’ Oracle
Andrea S. Garrett penned this review. Before this review gets underway, let me say that I am writing about this work as a book and a set of cards, not as an Oracle — having never manifested any skill in that area. Oddly enough, my deck did not contain a blank card, which considering my lack of gift seems prophetic. That being said, in order to discuss the book and cards I felt I should learn at least a little bit about Tarot or divination with cards. To my amazement there seem to be literally hundreds of different decks that are used rather like Tarot cards — usually with suits and with symbols that mirror traditional Tarot.
Take a journey into Faeryland and its beautiful scenes of elves, pixies, trolls, and of course, faeries. Digital images don't do the Faeries Oracle deck justice. The book says, "Do not read the book Given to me by my mother, they are simply not like a regular tarot or oracle deck. Brian Froud the artist for movies such as Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal has put his original paintings and artwork onto these oversized cards. Intricate and extremely detailed, each card has a warm camel-colored border, a number on the top right corner and the elegantly scripted title is on the bottom left.
