This deck is a combined work of two Bulgarian artists. Ghiuselev completed the artwork on the major arcana in 1990s and Atanassov carried this work further ten years later by completing the minor arcana. Atanassov is known for his artwork on the tarot decks of Bosch, the Golden Tarot of the Tsar, and Visconti Tarot.
I find the major arcana the most magical as their titles are in mirror writing which Leonardo enjoyed producing. The number of the major cards is in Latin numerals and the card title in six European languages at the corners. The minors have Arabic numerals with their suit titles included. The court cards have no number but their titles are written on the cards. The backs give nothing away as to whether the cards land upright or reversed. I think it will help readings to study the characters portrayed in the images. Who doesn't love Leonardo! These images are a great joy to work with, they are inspiring and they reach deep within the mind and heart for understanding. I like to intuit what the personalities within the cards are thinking, and this helps my readings immensely. A great deck - give it a try! Review by Wendy Stokes
