The Haindl Tarot has non-traditional imagery and is highly recommended for an advanced Tarot reader, or for meditation. The author, Hermann Haindl, was inspired by Qabbalah, Runes, I Ching, and Native American influences for the deep and compelling artwork.
This enigmatic, profound and strangely beautiful deck is truly in a class by itself. The allure of the Haindl deck does not lie in a cute gimmick or theme, impressive computer graphics or pretty colors…It isn’t a Rider-Waite knock-off and it isn’t a Thoth knock-off (although Thoth influences are evident).
The Haindl tarot is a serious, and at times even mournful deck, which has really stepped outside the bounds of convention. But even in its sometimes startling uniqueness, the deck never deviates from being a true tarot. (aeclectic.net)
