Description

66 cards (3 versions of each of the 22 major arcana), accompanied by a booklet, wrapped in thin, rough cloth with a tan & yellow pattern and housed inside a 2 piece cardboard lidded box.

Cards are 13 cm tall x 7 cm wide.

This was a limited edition of 25 decks; my copy is number 24, as indicated on the box lid. The box lid is signed by K. Frank Jensen, the project organizer and producer of the deck.

The deck consists of 3 separate versions of each of the 22 major arcana, for a total of 66 cards in the deck.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11.

The fronts of the cards are uncoated, while the backs have a glossy finish.

The backs are plain black and thus fully reversible.

The art style varies wildly throughout the deck as there were so many artists involved, some of whom contributed more than one card to the project. The artists involved lived all over the world -- the booklet lists each artist's name and home country.

As this was such a limited edition (only 25 copies), it is extremely difficult to find for sale. I waited and watched for 6 years before locating the copy I purchased.
