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 very flexible, with a smooth, matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled without damage.

The card back design is fully reversible.

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

Suits are Chalices, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. The court cards are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are scenic, and seem to follow the RWS tradition, though with frequent departures.

I think the concept of this deck is interesting -- to focus on doorways -- but the end result feels contrived. Some cards "work" but many others don't. The color palette also seems oddly muted.
