Gilded Reverie Lenormand Expanded Edition by Ciro Marchetti

Ciro Marchetti does it again.  His beautiful digital artwork is showcased in this expanded edition of his original Gilded Reverie Deck.  The cards are full of rich color and made of high quality card stock that is both flexible enough to shuffle yet durable.

In addition, the cards have a gold gilded edge on them, making them even more lush, as if the artwork alone was not enough :)  The backs are also gorgeous.  

The back has a harlequin pattern on them.  As you go through this deck, if you pay attention, some of the cards also show the harlequin pattern, keeping it consistent.  An example of this is in the paths card shown below.

The box that holds the cards and the guide book is well made.  It is made of a heavy card board with a magnetic closure that holds your cards securely and makes them easy to store.  There is no need to buy an extra draw string bag to house them.

This deck is the expanded edition released on August 1, 2017.  Most of the cards are the same as the first Gilded Reverie Lenormand deck with the exception there are 8 extra cards plus extra man, woman and birds.  Those are listed below:
  • Extra Man
  • Extra Woman
  • Time
  • Bridges
  • Dice
  • Mask
  • Well
  • Compas
  • Labyrinth
  • Magnifying Glass 
  • Owls (an exrta Birds card)
The guide book is 80 pages and written by Lee Bursten, Donnaleigh de LaRose and a couple others.

The readings that I do with this deck are amazingly accurate.  This beautiful deck has a personality and voice of its own.  One thing that I do is I leave both bird cards in the deck because they have slightly different meanings.  For example, the Birds card to me is the little chitter chatter, gossip, having coffee with your best friend.  The owls is more of receiving advise from a professional or wise person.  It is the card of wisdom.

The only one that I have found thus far is after doing the ruffle shuffle over a period of time, the gold gilding may flake off.

I highly recommend this deck.  It is great for both beginners and seasoned readers.  You can read it with just the 36 cards like the traditional Lenormand or shuffle in the extra cards.  The extra man and woman are good for same sex relationships or if you want to know if there are other people involved.

I hope this helps someone.  If you have any questions, feel free to comment below.  You can order the deck from Amazon.
