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, matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled without damage.

The card backs feature a reversible blue and white design with peacocks.

The fold-out guide ascribes non-traditional titles to each of the major aracana; however, the cards themselves bear the traditional titles.

Balance (Justice) is VIII and Energy (Strength) is XI. Madness (The Fool) is numbered 0.

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

The minor arcana are decorative pips; they are very beautiful, but not at all scenic. There's no specific, discernable theme to this deck, but the fold-out guide mentions that it is influenced by the art of Gustav Klimt.

Because of the non-scenic minors, I think it would be possible to use TdM meanings/methods to read with this deck.

The cards are titled in 5 languages, but the the fold-out guide is only in English. This seems to be the case with other Lo Scarabeo decks from this same period; I'm not sure if they produced multiple versions of deck guides in other languages for different markets or not.
