Description

79 cards in a 2 piece lidded cardboard box. No LWB and no title card. The 79th card is an extra, the Jackalope.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 7 cm wide (4.75 inches tall x 2.75 inches wide).

The card stock is flexible, with a lightly glossy finish.

Card backs are reversible -- black with a wagon wheel image in the center.

The major arcana are unnumbered.

The minor arcana are fully scenic, and are somewhat similar in arrangement to the RWS images.

Suits are Pentacles, Cups, Swords, and Wands -- though I only know this by looking at the deck's website. Looking at the cards themselves, the Pentacles suit looks more like Coins, and the Wands suit looks more like Posts or Pencils.

Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

Annoyingly, the artist's name does not appear on the box or on the cards. However, the information is readily available online, including on the deck's website and in a discussion thread on Aeclectic Tarot.

I paid $24.95 USD for my copy.
