Description

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

The cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide. The card stock is wonderfully flexible, with a smooth, mostly matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled without damage.

The card back design is non-reversible.

Justice is VIII and Strength is XI. The Fool is numbered 0. 

Cups, Wands, Swords, and Discs. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minors are sort of scenic -- some moreso than others. For the most part, they follow the RWS system.

I dislike this this deck; the art is too dark to see clearly and it seems over-photoshopped. A decade ago when it was first published, it may have had more impact. In truth, I don't remember what I thought of it then; this was probably a deck I aquired on sale, and purchased because it looked moderately interesting.

Note: The LWB mentions that the instructions are written by Lillie (no last name given). I wonder if this is the same Lillie who created the Aubrey Beardsley tarot, and who was once very active on the Aeclectic Tarot forum?
