Description

78 cards + a slim LWB in a two-part, lidded box. My copy was also accompanied by an enamel pin and a postcard-sized print of the Sun card, with a handwritten note from the artist on the back.

The cards measure 3.25" wide x 5.1" long by my measurements; however, the deck's Kickstarter page lists the dimensions as 3.35" x 5.1".

The cardstock is flexible, with a smooth, glossy finish. The cards have a shiny, iridescent silver edging. 

The back design is non-reversible.

A notable feature of this deck is that there are no men depicted. Cards that would normally feature a male figure (such as Emperor, for example, and the Kings of each suit) all feature a female character instead.

Other than that, the Heroine tarot follows the RWS system fairly closely, with some artistic variations.

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

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

The minor arcana cards are fully scenic, and will be easily readable to anyone familiar with the RWS.

Though listed with a copyright year of 2019, it was late in 2020 when I received my copy. I was a Kickstarter backer at the $60 level, for one copy of the deck.
