In 2013 I had the pleasure of attending Be The Change, Suzanne Evans conference extravaganza. During this 4 day event I learned a lot and took home some Suzanne Evans quotation gems, but one of the ones that has stuck to me is when Suzanne was talking about business models and product creation she said and I quote “You don't have to reinvent the wheel, but for God's sake paint it”. This deck is in my mind Llewellyn's painted wheel.
The Llewellyn Classic Tarot is a reworking of the traditional Rider Waite deck but, it has some nice new spins that give it a new lease on life without it subtracting from the feel of the original version. In my mind this deck is so good that anyone at any level of tarot experience can pick this deck up and immediately immerse themselves in it. This is mainly because of the incredible companion book. This book is so good it could very easily be sold as without the deck. It is that jam packed with tarot knowledge.
