Description

78 cards + a title card and an advertising card, with a multilingual LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide.

Card backs are reversible.

The card stock is flexible, with a smooth, matte finish.

Suits are Cups, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. The suit names do not appear on the cards themselves; rather, suit symbols appear in the border area of each of the minor arcana.

Courts are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minors are fully scenic, and primarily RWS in style. The art is digital and sometimes has clearly incorporated photography for the characters' faces.

The majors are numbered, but are only titled in the LWB -- no titles are printed on the cards themselves. Justice is 8 and Strength is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

I find this to be a surprisingly usable deck, with a strong concept and theme, and detailed, clear, hauntingly beautiful art.
