This Might Hurt Tarot by Isabella Rotman was high on my must-have list ever since it caught my eye on Instagram. I knew I had to have it so I rushed to Isabella’s website and pre-ordered it. I was behind the people that backed it on Kickstarter so I anticipated waiting at least a month before receiving my deck but surprisingly I received it in a few weeks after purchasing.
Right away I was very impressed with the packaging of this deck. The deck comes in a black box with a magnetic clamp and gold lettering. Inside are the cards and a guidebook. Most of the information in the guidebook is located on her website, which is very convenient. The cardstock feels sturdy and the deck shuffles like a dream. My favorite thing about this deck’s appearance is the black holographic edges. I haven’t seen anything like it yet. It’s so gorgeous when the sun hits it! The deck is also available in gold and pearl holographic edges. I also received a cool sticker with the deck which I thought was cool because who doesn’t love stickers!
The card back is so gorgeous. I love the black and white detail and the representation of all the suits. Obviously from the card back, this deck can be read with reversals (if you’re into that type of thing)
Overall this deck is an excellent RWS clone. It’s perfect for beginners and even teens because it’s so easy to read and relatable. I love how inclusive and modern it is, I have the same hair cut as Temperance right now lol literally, it’s perfect. I love reading with this deck, it’s gotten me through some tough times already and I can vouch that it delivers the truth. You can pick up a copy from Isabella’s website.
As always, I review decks because I love the art of tarot. New decks make a regular day feel like Christmas.
All opinions are my own. I was not sent this deck nor asked to review this deck by Isabella. I purchased it with my own money.
