Transformational Tarot


Collage art


78 cards + a title card + an author's "about" card + an LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box. 

The cards measure 2.75" wide x 4.75" long. The card suffers from having been printed in Italy -- Italian printings of USG decks from this period are notoriously sticky, and this deck is no exception. The cardstock is somewhat flexible, with a lightly glossy yet sticky finish. The cards do not slide or shuffle easily; they glom on to each other and must be carefully separated, even after repeated handling.

The card back design is fully reversible.

Some, though not all, of the major arcana have been renamed. Justice is VIII and Strength is XI. The Dreamer (Fool) is numbered 0. 

Suits are Cups, Wands, Swords, and Coins. The court cards are Princess, Prince, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are somewhat scenic, insofar as possible given the collage art. Sadly, the print quality does the art a disfavor in that it is too dark;
distinctions are lost. Also, the dimensions look slightly skewed and stretched in some cards.

In some of the cards, an RWS influence is evident, but in many cases these cards are doing their own thing, without obvious references to any major system.

My copy is signed by the artist, Arnell Ando, on the title card. If memory serves, I purchased this deck through her website in order to receive a signed copy.
