Subject

Description

78 cards + a title card and advertising card + a small fold-out guide 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, mostly matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled without damage.

The card backs are non-reversible.

Justice is VIII and Fortitude (Strength) is XI. Necessity (The Fool) is numbered 0.

The suits have been renamed as follows:

Bricks = Wands
Flames = Swords
Clouds = Pentacles
Lights = Chalices

The court cards are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are scenic, and quite unique and stylized. They don't align neatly with any major tarot tradition.

The cards are titled in 6 languages. The fold-out guide is only in English.
