Description

The Compound Tarot is in booklet format, and contains a complete set of art for 78 cards. The reverse of each page has the card back design on it, so it would be possible to remove the pages from the book, trim off the edges, and thus create a set of cards. 

The book also suggests that the user might color the images, but the art doesn't seem well-suited to coloring, and part of its charm is that it is black and white.

The book is quite thick, yet compact. Each page measures 4 inches across (from the edge of the binding) by 5.5 inches tall. The front and back covers are clear plastic, like that of a report cover.

The back design is reversible. Strength is 8 and Justice is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

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

The minor arcana are scenic and primarily follow the RWS system, with a lot of variance.

The deck's insipiration, theme, and quirky characters are drawn from the Daughters of Divination group.

Note: I have 2 copies of this, both of which are signed by the artist.

Additional note: Full-color copies of the Compound tarot were also made available in deck form, in a limited run of 75 copies.
