Description

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

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide. The card stock is very flexible, with a smooth, mostly-matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled.

Card backs have a non-reversible design.

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

The suits are Chalices, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. The court cards are Princess, Prince, Queen, and Knight.

The minors are fully scenic, with a nod towards the RWS tradition.

Note: This deck has one of the most intense Queen of Swords cards I've ever seen. One of the reasons I chose to scan the Queen of Swords from each deck is that it's often an "ordinary" card -- not typically something a reviewer would feature as particularly striking. But this Queen is, literally and figuratively, taking heads.
