Title

Daughters of the Moon Tarot (black and white edition)

Subject

Feminism, Women, Spirituality

Description

74 round cards with a title card. I purchased my copy used, and it did not come with a box or LWB. A few cards show light signs of aging, and the back of the title card is damaged.

The cards measure 13.4 cm in diameter -- they are quite large.

The theme, obviously enough, is feminism and goddess spirituality. Many of the majors are renamed, and to be honest, I cannot tell which one of them corresponds to Death. Thus I scanned a few different cards that might be Death.

The minors are fully scenic.

The cards are uncoated on the front, so that the owner of the deck can color them in. The backs are purple with a white crescent moon, with a slightly glossy coating.

Ffiona Morgan is listed as the person who designed and envisioned the artwork; however, 10 artists are also listed on the title card. This was a collaborative project.

Suits are Pentacles, Blades, Flames, and Cups. The courts are Maiden, Mother, and Crone (so, there are only 3 court cards per suit, not 4).

Though this deck has recently been made re-available in its black and white, "color it yourself" format, my copy is from a much earlier printing.

Note: Tarot Garden and Aeclectic Tarot both list this deck as having 75 cards. I need to re-count the number of cards in my copy; I though there were only 74 (not counting the title card).
