Vertigo Tarot, 20th Anniversary Edition

Title

Vertigo Tarot, 20th Anniversary Edition

Subject

Vertigo comics

Description

78 cards with a 128 page soft cover companion book, packaged together as a set. Also included with the set is a black velveteen drawstring bag that has "The Vertigo Tarot" stamped in gold on its front.

The deck and book are housed together inside a large, sturdy cardboard box with a clear "window" in the front, where the front cover of the companion book shows through.

This edition is also sometimes known as the 3rd edition, since it is the third time the deck has been published. The first edition was published in 1995 and the second edition was published in 2001.

Nothing on the box itself actually states "3rd edition," however.

The cards measure 12.6 cm tall x 6.9 cm wide.

The card stock is thin and quite flexible, with a smooth, glossy finish.

The card backs are non-reversible.

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

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

The minor arcana are somewhere in between fully scenic and "illustrated." There are suggestions of scenes, certainly, but not full scenes in a traditional sense.
