Description

78 cards + a small format, 100 page guide booklet. The deck and booklet are housed in a loose-fitting, 2-part lidded cardboard box.

The cards measue 11.9 cm tall x 6.9 cm wide. The cardstock is moderately flexible, with a flat matte finish on both sides.

The cards feature gold foil stamped inner borders on the fronts; it is pretty, but doesn't add much to the reading experience. The card titles are also gold foil stamped, which is nice in theory, but in low light the gold titles nearly disappear against the black background.

In addition to the gold foil stamping, the cards are edged in gold. The gold gilt edging works against the deck instead of in its favor, as the egdes of many cards were stuck together quite firmly at first. It took work to separate all the cards without damaging the edges in the process.

The card back design is reversible. The major arcana are unnumbered.

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

Some of the minor arcana are scenic and others are much less so; there are many different art styles represented.

This deck is a collaborative project created by members of The Cult of Tarot discussion forum, and was funded and marketed via a Kickstarter campaign. I was a backer at the €37 level, for one copy of the deck. (€37 is around $40 USD.)
