Description

78 cards + a title card in a cardboard tuck box, accompaied by an oversized but very thin guide booklet. The deck is part of a larger "Fortune Telling Kit" that also includes a small, hardcover Palm Reading book. The overall set is housed in a large, cardboard, two-part slipcase box.

The cards are smaller and more square than average, measuring 6.7 cm wide x 8.2 cm long. The card stock is reasonably flexible, with a glossy finish. The glossiness makes the cards prone to sticking together.

The card back design is fully reversible.

Justice is VIII and Strength is XI. The Fool is numbered 0 -- or more precisely, labeled as "Zero" (there's no numeral on this card).

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

The minor arcana cards feature limited scenes and follow the RWS system.

The Tarot Nova has been published in different sizes and packaging, always as a "gift shop" type of item. The art is quite sweet and readable, especially for readers familiar with the RWS.

The original retail price on the back of the set is $15.95 USD.
