Created over 4,500 years ago by Fu Xi, the mythical first emperor of China, the I Ching, or Book of Changes, has been used ever since as a venerated source of philosophical wisdom and advice. Now this beautifully packaged card deck makes it accessible to everyone, everywhere, and at every moment. Each of the 64 cards features an oracle from the I Ching, illustrated by Chao-Hsiu Chen’s distinctive art and calligraphy, and an enlightening original interpretation to guide users to its meaning. Designed specifically for practical use, one can construct a personal hexagram by selecting two of the eight trigram tokens, find the card that applies to that hexagram, and carry it around to let the I Ching's silent presence provide guidance and comfort throughout the day.

These cards are my favourite. I even draw cards and share the info with Chinese people and they insist on having a deck of their own. The Chinese ladies say this deck is very accurate, They never thought we could find this quality in English. The only problem is I bought it from Estoril Books and they don't seem to sell it anymore
