Description

78 cards with a foldout style LWB. No box and no title card.

Cards are mini sized, measuring 8.5 cm tall x 5.5 cm wide.

This is a reprint of the standard Thoth images, with titles in German.

Backs are non-reversible.

Each of the suits has a different border color. Majors have purple borders, Wands have sky blue borders, Swords have yellowish-tan borders, and Discs have bluish-grey borders.

The colors are muted throughout, though it is still possible to discern details.

The cardstock is reasonably flexible, with a matte finsih.

The publication details and history of this printing of the Thoth is somewhat sketchy and hard to come by, but Photokat (a member of the Aeclectic Tarot forums) came up with some information through her research, and posted it on the AT forums.

Here's a quote from her post dated March 27, 2010: "These decks were designed by 2 ladies who used to own a Pagan/Occult shop in Munich called "Hexerey" about a decade ago and they sold them at Renaissance fairs and various Esoteric fairs in small towns of the Munich area in Bavaria, Germany, for a short period of time, where they also gave readings with these decks. They were never sold online, only at these fares around Munich.

Several hundred had been printed altogether and almost all of them had been sold. Then, at some point, both "Witches" decided to move on to other things. The store eventually closed and the remaining decks that were still at the printer started collecting dust. The link to the store still exists, I am guessing they still do some kind of witch related entertainment work.

The symbol on the back of the cards is the emblem for their store : http://photokat.com/offline/tarot/hexerey.jpg

It's a sun and a celtic triskele in the middle. Around the triskele, there are the letters K and C , which are the initials of the ladies. K for Katrin and C for Christiane. The other horned little thing (I first thought it's the devil) is actually the symbol for taurus, both their birth signs.

And orange their favorite color."

Personal note: My copy is stored in a green drawstring bag with a watercolor floral pattern and pink lining.
