Description

78 cards + a title card and an advertising card + an LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide. The card stock is very flexible, with a smooth, mostly-matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled.

The card backs have a reversible design.

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

Suits are Chalices, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. The court cards are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are somewhere on the continuum between "decoratively illustrated" and fully scenic; they are definitely not scenic in the RWS style, though a handful of the cards give a nod to the RWS.

If I was going to read with this deck, I might find it easiest to ascribe TdM meanings to the cards.

As an art deck, this tarot succeeds on both counts -- as a work of art (and homage to Bosch) as well as a functional divinatory tool.
