Mythical Creatures Tarot

Mythical Creatures Tarot




79 cards + a title card + a nicer-than-average LWB in a sturdy cardboard box with a hinged lid. Two versions of the 3 of Cups card are included -- one of which is illustrated in the style of the rest of the deck, and one of which is scenic.

The deck was also accompanied by a small printed note that explains the extra card, as well as the customary "thank you" Baba Studio card that features an image from one of their decks on one side, and Baba Studio social media info on the other.

The cards measure 7.8 cm wide x 12.8 cm long. The card stock is of excellent quality--flexible and durable, with a softe matte finish and metallic ink overlay highlights that catch the light. As noted on the Baba Studio site, these metallic highlights are under the card varnish, so they won't wear off when the cards are handled.

The card back design is reversible.

The major arcana are unnumbered.

The suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Coins. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are beautifully illustrated, but not scenic. They may be read using TdM meanings or with RWS meanings; both are provided in the LWB.

This copy is from the water-colour, standard (non-limited) edition. A limited edition was also made available for sale.

I paid a pre-order, discounted price of just under $50 USD for my copy in 2019, and received it in February 2020.

Note: A limited, signed, numbered monochrome edition preceded the water-colour edition, and is long sold-out. The monochrome edition was published in 2016. (I own a copy of this edition, too.)
