Description

78 cards in a standard cardboard tuck box, with a better than average LWB (32 pg "The Light Grey Tarot Guidebook"). No title card.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 7 cm wide.

The card backs are a grey and white fully reversible design.

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

The cards have small white borders, and the name of each card's artist appears in small print in the lower right corner of the border on each card.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

The minors are scenic, but the level of detail varies widely from one card to the next, as each is done by a different artist. One notable feature of the minors is that cards 2-10 of each suit have roman numerals at the top, but no titles. And since the suit symbols are not always prominent or easily recognizable, I'm hesitant to shuffle or use this deck for a reading -- I'm not certain I'd be able to identify the correct suits.

Suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

Though the naming and numbering follows the RWS conventions, the art does not consistently adhere to any specific tarot tradition.

No year of publication or copyright appears anywhere on the cards or the LWB or the box. In fact, the copyrights may vary from card to card, as they are specific to each artist.

I purchased my copy in late 2012 for $25 USD directly from the Light Grey Art Lab website.
