Description

78 cards + a 175 page softcover guidebook packaged together in a sturdy cardboard shelf box. The box has a hinged lid with a magnetic closure.

The cards measure 7.1 cm wide x 11.8 cm long.

The card stock is magnificent; very flexible yet durable, and well suited to riffle shuffling. The cards have a glossy, smooth finish that isn't at all sticky.

The card backs are reversible.

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

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

The minor arcana are scenic in the RWS style, though with some artistic variations.

The guidebook is the weak point of this set; the descriptions are quite general and not focused on this specific deck. Stylistically, it is written for absolute beginners.

Two Notes: The publication date appears only in the book, and not on the cards or on the set box. Also, the box lists the guidebook as having 216 pages. This is technically true, but there are only 175 numbered, relevant pages. After that, the remaining pages are for notes, or contain advertisments for other decks.
