Description

This set includes two decks: a 78 card tarot deck + 22 card oracle deck, packaged together in a long, sturdy, two-piece lidded cardboard set box. Included with the set is a small, compact 141-page guide book.

Also included inside the box is a marketing piece for the deck, almost like a long postcard, that is signed in black marker: "Thank You! :) - Light grey". 

The cards measure 12 cm tall x 7 cm wide, with gold gilt edges and a lightly glossy coating. The cards also feature a small amount of gold foil embellishment, with a constellation overlaid in gold on each card. 

The card backs are reversible. The backs of the tarot deck are a blue shade, and the backs of the oracle cards are a purple shade; otherwise, the design of both card backs is identical.

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

Suits are Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are illustrated, but not always what I'd call "scenic" -- it varies from card to card, as each one was created by a different artist. 

The 22 card oracle deck included with the set can be used separately or in conjunction with the tarot cards. They are the same size, but can be distinguished from one another by the color of the card backs. The oracle deck features planets and other astral bodies.

As a collaborative deck project, the Cosmos succeeds more than most -- especially if you enjoy reading with unconventional, contemporary decks.

The back of the box notes that this is a limited edition; however, nowhere did I find how many copies were printed. The companion book notes that this is the first edition.

Both the box and the book list the same ISBN, but when I search for the ISBN, nothing comes up about this deck set.

A second edition is underway at the time of this writing (January 2020); more details are available here.
