Description

78 cards with a soft cover companion book, packaged together as a set in a 2 part, lidded cardboard set box. No title card or LWB included.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 7.5 cm wide.

The card stock feels sub-par -- not very flexible, thin, and with a slightly rough textured, matte finish. It seems like it would crease easily if riffle shuffled.

The card backs are non-reversible and have a copyright note at the bottom.

Suits are Stones (equivalent to Pentacles), Swords, Lances (equivalent to Wands), and Vessels (equivalent to Cups). Courts are Brother (Page), Preceptor (Knight), Master (King), and Lady (Queen) -- and the Queen is placed above the King in the hierarchy.

The minors are fully scenic.

The major arcana have all been renamed to fit with the Grail theme. Card 0 is The Grail Seeker (Fool). Card 8 is The Commanderie (Strength). Card 11 is The Shekinah (Justice).

The companion book is written by John Matthews and is titled "The Grail Tarot: A Templar Vision." It is soft cover and 192 pages long.

This set is from the 1st edition, 2007.
