Back of Mythic Tarot Set says:

The classic bestseller now re-illustrated

The Mythic Tarot was first published in 1986 and has been an international success with tarot readers ever since.

The card illustrations depict the gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines of the Greek myths – familiar archetypal characters whose experiences perfectly mirror the shifts and patterns of our lives today.

For this new edition, the entire deck has been re-illustrated by Giovanni Caselli, an artist with a passion for the classical world, its literature, symbols and myths.

The New Mythic Tarot book explains everything you need to know to become an accomplished tarot reader. The new cards are stunning, and breathe fresh life into this classic deck. With images rich in psychological insight, the mythical legends they depict provide wisdom and guidance for seekers of personal growth.

* Superb new illustrations for an established Tarot
* In-depth book of interpretation
* A new classic for our time

We say: This deck has a youthful feel, full of enthusiasm for life. This is partly caused by the people in the cards, who all appear to have something 'on the go', always pondering something, or doing something. As stated above, Greek mythology plays a big part in this deck with the Golden Fleece, Zeus, Pan, Poseidon et al all making appearances. You do not necessarily need a great understanding of Greek mythology - that may be something you find out more about as you use the deck longer.

Both the major and minor Arcana have strong imagery, but the strongest aspect of this Tarot deck is the character that the cards put across. This would make them suited to beginners, but also there is such depth many Tarot readers choose this as their preferred deck.

Juliet Sharman-Burke - Tarot expert
Juliet Sharman-Burke was born in Nairobi, Kenya and has spent over 20 years practising astrology and tarot and has written a number of books on these topics, both for beginners and the more advanced. Her fascination with the tarot began in the early 1970s, but it wasn’t until 1976, when she did a course at the Franklin School in London, that she decided to focus more intently on her passion for the tarot, as well as her interest in psychology and astrology. She has successfully combined all these interests into her life and work, through teaching, working and writing books.

Juliet qualified as an analytic psychotherapist and runs a private practice in the city of London. Alongside this, she’s taught and supervised at the Centre for Psychological Astrology since it began in June 1983. She currently runs the administration and organisation sides of the Centre.

Juliet has gone on to write a number of highly acclaimed books on astrology and tarot subjects, plus a book of stories for children. She’s co-authored a couple of titles with Liz Greene, including The Mythic Tarot and The Mythic Journey, the former of which included a tarot deck and was based on Greek myths.

She’s also co-created the Sharman-Caselli Tarot Deck, along with Italian illustrator Giovanni Caselli. Originally produced as part of The Beginner’s Guide to Tarot, the deck has since been released on its own and uses more traditional symbolism on the cards, which is drawn from a mixture of influences, including the Waite, Visconti and Marseilles decks.

This deck is full of life, and meaning. In many Tarot packs some of the illustrations show images of people that are simple static portraits of a person. This is not the case with The Mythic Tarot as every card shows Greek gods, goddesses, people and mythical creatures in a wide variety of dramatic situations. Everyone shown is either engaged in some activity or about to take a potentially difficult decision about something. The colouring is vivid and all the drawings are very finely detailed. However, what makes these cards truly unique is that each suit of the Minor Arcana portrays, in great detail, a different Greek Myth. The Suit of Wands shows the adventures of Jason and the Argonauts, Cups portrays the love affair between Eros and Psyche, Swords depicts the myth of Orestes and Coins illustrates the story of Daedalus, the master craftsman. The Major Arcana depicts mainly gods or demi-gods. Some of the cards really stand out for their beauty, including the Star (Pandora opening the Box), the Empress (Demeter, the mother Goddess of nature) and Temperance (Iris, the Goddess of the rainbow). Although a detailed knowledge of Greek mythology is not necessary to appreciate this deck, I would particularly recommend these cards to anyone who has an interest in classical studies, mythology, or archetypal imagery.
