Description

More an oracle deck than a tarot deck, the title nonetheless contains the word "Tarot." Twenty-two cards plus one blank card and a title card, packaged with an instructional fold-out, all wrapped together inside a piece of cream-colored heavy paper, tied with thin twine.

Cards are 12.7 cm tall x 6.7 cm wide.

Corners are square.

Backs are reversible and printed in brown and white.

Card art is minimal and iconic, in black and white. the images all play on the theme of sewing and tailoring.

In terms of titles, the only card that pays homage to tarot is the first card, named "The Tool" (instead of The Fool). Otherwise, the cards are not numbered and, after shuffling, it would be impossible to re-order them in any logical fashion. (Well, unless you looked in the instructions.)

There's a interesting printing snafu on the title card, by the way -- Payne Fifield's last name is missing. It appears on the packaging and on the instructions, though.
