I think the problem with the Universal Transparent Tarot is that is is not really transparent! The panels printed onto the clear sheets are each opaque. So you cannot see through these to anything lying underneath. The beauty of Emily Carding's deck was that each layer was itself transparent, and you could build up layer upon layer. This made this an very interesting artwork.
I completely agree. And what's the point of issuing a transparent tarot when if you put the cards on top of each other you can't see what's underneath (exp if you get Pentacles and Cups cards, or Swords and wands). There is indication how to do a reading - choosing 2 cards of 3 groups of cards, than put them on top of the other - well, I did, but couldn't see what was under the top card! (as it happened that I draw a card from the same suit). Emily's idea was new and brilliant, UTT seems to me as being issued out of business considerations only. Sorry.
