Description

78 cards + a signed, numbered edition card + an informational card in a hinged, flip-top box with a magnetic closure.

There is also an outer box, offering a further measure of protection for the main box. The outer box is made of sturdy cardboard, printed with full-color images of the card backs and the URL for the artist's website. The deck's number is written in what appears to be black marker on one end of the outer box (#11/50).

Cards measure 11.4 cm tall x 6 cm wide.

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

The cards have glossy, black edging that catches the light.

The card back design is fully reversible.

According to the information from the artist, this deck is based on the Nicolas Conver Marseilles tarot of 1760.

Justice is VIII and Force (Strength) is XI. Le Mat (The Fool) is unnumbered. 

Suits are Coins, Batons, Cups, and Swords. Court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King. (The card titles are in French; I've listed the English-language equivalents here.)

The minor arcana are illustrated in the Marseilles tradition.

The deck was initially marketed and funded via Kickstarter. I was a backer of the campaign in 2019 at the "Early Bird Signed Limited Edition Deck" level, paying $67 for a signed, numbered, limited edition copy.

My copy is #11 of 50.

Copies of the deck are still available for sale through the artist's website: https://thelilystonequarry.com/product/stone-marseilles/
