Description

87 cards plus a title card and advertising card, with a multi-lingual LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide.

The card stock is flexible, with a matte finish, and easy to shuffle.

Backs are reversible. Card titles appear in 6 languages.

Justice is 8 and Strength is 11. The Fool is numbered 0.

Suits are Wands, Pentacles, Chalices, and Swords. Courts are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minors show a strong RWS influence, in that the images evoke similar meanings and emotions to their corresponding images in the RWS, though without the same symbolism.

The cards are fully scenic and beautifully painted, with animals acting as humans (dressed, standing on two feet, etc.). I find this to be a strongly evocative and readable deck.
