I love art nouveau art, but I am not so fond of this deck. I just don't seem to have an affinity with it. The pictures are lovely, especially the high priestess, the empress, justice, the wheel, death, temperance, the stars, the moon, judgement, and the world. All these cards are female art nouveau pictures. The rest of the cards are occupied by males, and seem to be quite dark and gloomy. I might have been expecting bold colours, but the lack of vivid colours in this deck, to me, make it dull, washed out and boring. I do like beautiful bright things, so don't let my opinion affect your purchase, because others might absolutely adore this deck.
