Title

Lars-Kristian Holmsen Tarot

Description

78 cards with a small format, 114 page, full color, hardcover companion book. The book and cards were packaged in a hard shell, squarish cardboard set box (that I unwisely chose not to keep).

Cards are 11.8 cm tall x 6.7 cm wide.

This deck set was first published in Norway in 2003 (by Notabene Forlag A/S), then later republished in 2004 (by Chartwell Books). My copy is from Chartwell Books.

The card stock has a shiny coating that is not at all sticky. The cards are reasonably flexible and can be shuffled by usual means.

Card backs are fully reversible.

Suits are Pentacles, Swords, Wands, and Cups.

Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

Justice is 8 and Strength is 11. The Fool card is numbered as zero.

The major arcana are not fully scenic, but are at least iconic and evocative. The minors are merely decorative pips.

There's not much to say about this deck, to be truthful. It's pretty. But it's also quite plain and the pips are not evocative. It would be an okay reading deck for someone who has meanings memorized, but for an intuitive reader such as myself, this deck is simply a decorative stack of cards.
