Description

78 cards plus a title card and an informational card, packaged with a small, softcover booklet in a sturdy, 2 piece lidded cardboard box.

(The booklet cover is not pictured, as it is nearly identical to the box cover and the title card.)

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.9 cm wide.

The card back design is fully reversible.

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

Each suit has a different border color, and each was created by a different artist (attributions are given on the information card, which is pictured here). The major arcana have green borders, Cups have blue borders, Wands have dark red borders, Pentacles have yellow borders, and Swords have purple borders.

Each card has a title in addition to its number, and the major arcana each have two titles -- one traditional, and one related to science. For instance, The Lovers is also titled Binary Star.

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

Courts are Explorer (Page), Innovator (Knight), Storyteller (Queen), and Visionary (King), and each of the courts portrays a real scientist.

At the present time (March 2013), the deck already seems to be out of print. It had been available for sale through Amazon.

More information about the deck and its creators and artists can be found on the deck's website, at http://sciencetarot.com.
