The Heart & Hands Tarot is a black and white deck, but it is certainly not boring. All of the cards are fully illustrated with intricate line drawings, embracing the traditional figures and symbolism of the Rider-Waite tarot deck. My favorite part? The modern touches, like replacing the Page with a more obviously female Princess title.
Blackbird elegantly uses straight lines, curves and white space to build and release energy in her illustrations. Borders are not limitations, and musings are allowed their own space. The movement created with the ship coming out of the frame in the Three of Wands (middle` card above) is a great example of this. The impression this card gives of movement and action contrasts with the way the same technique is used in the Ace of Wands (card on the left) to show almost a chaotic, creative realm.
