Gustave Doré, Art, Bible

Description

78 cards in a standard cardboard tuck box that is too large for the deck, and thus dents in very easily. The deck did not come with an LWB or book.

Cards are 13.1 cm tall x 9.1 cm wide -- oversized, but still easy enough to handle.

Backs are not quite fully reversible, but you'd have to be paying close attention to notice the difference between upright and reversed.

The card stock has a shiny laminate coating.

The art is black and white, and consists entirely of the Biblical illustrations of Gustave Doré (1832-1883), carefully chosen to "fit" within the general concept of each tarot card. This is very much an art deck; I cannot personally imagine reading with this deck.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

Suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

In addition to their tarot numbers and titles, each card also bears a subtitle conveying the Biblical scene, person, or concept portrayed in the art.

Published in the Czech Republic. Price is 40,00 EUR.
