Description

93 cards (78 + an extra suit), 3 advertising cards, and a 104 page LWB, in a standard cardboard tuck box.

The cards are much squarer than average, measuring 11 cm tall x 9 cm wide.

The card stock is stiff and a little thicker than average, with a matte finish. Nearly impossible to shuffle by normal means. In fact, the cards feel and look quite a lot like drink coasters.

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

Suits are Wands, Swords, Disks, Cups . . . and a fifth suit, Triax, which the LWB says represents "the etheric or spirit" (pg. 6).

Courts are Princess, Prince, Queen, and Knight.

The minors are illustrated but not scenic, and often appear to be modeled on the Thoth minors.

Card titles appear in three languages -- English, German, and French.
