This is a fully-illustrated deck, with a strong feminist bent. All the cards have rather wide white borders, within which each card's title and number are contained, and although it limits the size of the images, Barbara Walker's artwork is beautifully executed. Also within the borders, the information is printed in English, Italian, Spanish, French and German.
The Court cards of the Minor Arcana are 'Princess', 'Prince', 'Queen', and 'King', and each one depicts various gods, goddesses, mythical figures and archetypes, e.g. 'Princess of Swords' is 'Skuld' (leader of Norse death angels); 'Prince of Wands' is 'Dagon' (the dual-natured consort of the cyclic goddess Atargatis); 'Queen of Cups' is 'Virginal' (the Ice Queen); 'King of Pentacles' is 'Baal' (the Mountain God). It has to be said that the Minor cards pack quite a punch and are not for the faint-hearted. The 'Queen of Swords', 'Kali', is shown squatting on the body of a man, eating his internal organs!
I find this to be a really fascinating deck, very emotive. Barbara Walker has had a rich and varied career, with one of her greatest successes being that she produced ten books of knitting patterns and designs. For more information on this deck and its author, read 'The Secrets of the Tarot', by Walker herself.
