The Hanson-Roberts Tarot deck

Written by  on November 18, 2015 

The Hanson-Roberts Tarot is the deck I learnt to read with.. it’s an easy to understand one for beginners and has positive, slightly medieval artwork that was originally drawn in coloured pencil. Some of the humans look a little odd, but it grows on you.
The Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck is often a favorite deck for novice and seasoned readers alike. Accomplished artist Mary Hanson-Roberts’ primary goal appears to have been to provide an aesthetically pleasing, manageable deck that is a very faithful rendition of the Rider-Waite-Smith system. Toward that end, her use of colored pencil, printed on high-quality plastic-coated card stock, provides a deck is quite durable with colors that are quite vivid without becoming garish.
It is easy to see why this deck is intensely popular, especially among novice readers. Hanson-Robert’s artwork is, of course, extraordinary. (aeclectic.net)
