In recent years Richard has become known for his work producing oracle card decks in close collaboration with other authors:-
Winner in the About.com reader’s awards for best oracle deck of 2012.
“Richard’s fine talent and exquisite flair are rare and almost incalculable. One is inspired from a bygone era of superlative pen and brush craftsmanship, and the other is gifted from a future sanctuary of exquisite precision and grace. Somehow he suspends them in a flash of present moment, and without Richard’s brilliance, my work of bringing the wisdom of an ancient Oracle into the focus of contemporary daily life, would have been nigh on impossible!”
The Angels of Atlantis Oracle Cards is a beautifully illustrated deck which provides instant illumination to the reader. The words of inspiration and comfort from Stewart Pearce coupled with the outstanding artwork of Richard Crookes is beyond inspiring! I have used this deck on several occasions when I needed clarity on given situations. After each experience, I have felt calmer, more grounded, and more intuned to the circumstances in which I needed guidance. The chants included with each card vibrated throughout my body, and I felt empowered. I highly recommend this deck to everyone who is looking for additional insights and connections with the angelic realm. –

THE ASTROLOGY READING CARDS designed in collaboration with Alison Chester Lambert published by Findhorn Press
“These gorgeous and inspiring oracle cards are almost as good as having an expert astrologer at your fingertips. For the first time ever, you can consult the zodiac for clear answers to specific questions about your life and future without having to get your entire birth chart done – or indeed pay through the nose for a personal reading. Combining Alison Chester-Lambert’s years of planetary wisdom with Richard Crookes’ beautiful ethereal imagery.”
These cards seem to hold an energy of enchantment which somehow expands as they get to know you? When I received these cards I opened them and felt a magical energy, almost as if they have been infused with some of the stardust of which they speak. Yes, I know that sounds a bit weird; but aren’t these weird times? Are we not opening up to magical moments from all sorts of unexpected places?

THE ANIMAL WHISPERS EMPOWERMENT CARDS designed in collaboration with Madeleine Walker
Following on from Madeleine’s beautiful guided meditation CDS, I eagerly anticipated Animal Whispers Empowerment Cards, knowing the same wisdom and magic would imbue the new creation. I was not disappointed! From the first glance, the cards delight, as Richard Crookes, the very talented illustrator, perfectly depicts the inherent majestic nature of the animal kingdom – allowing me to instantaneously connect with the essence and gift of Animal Whisper. The sturdy box comes with a magnetic clip to keep your cards in pristine condition, opening to reveal a glorious image of the white lion appearing in the sky surrounded by starlight (the same image is also on the back of each animal card, perhaps setting the tone of the special wisdom and energy embodied by the white lions).
Sarah Ince, Eco-Luminescence
Beautiful cards that are sure to delight divination card collectors as well as anyone who is interested in interspecies communications. Tap into the wisdom of birds, beasts, insects and sea-life through the artistically enhanced photographs in this empowerment deck. Look into the eyes of the animals and choose from among the many cards those that seem to speak to you.
