This is a deck that, in structure, follows full force the Waite set up. Card for card, it is perfectly identical and requires very little rethinking of already learned habits to read. Not particularly innovative but still a good, solid deck with lovely art. As a divinatory deck, it fulfills all expectations of a Waite deck.
The stock is a bit thinner than I generally care for in my cards, but the gloss used on them also serves to strengthen the card. Long term wear and tear may be an issue but if properly cared for they will be perfectly fine for years to come.
Now on to the deck's highlight: its art. The artist has combined three different styles to a very enjoyable effect: Egyptian, Asian and a touch of western European. The Egyptian is plainly seen in the symbology and the coloration of the cards- she uses sandwashed colors to give the feel of them having been painted upon stone. The facial style, though possessing the eyes known to anyone who has even passingly encountered Egyptian art, is very much that of the ancient style of many Asian countries: long and narrow, which takes very well to the kohl layering done around them. The western European is blended in to lend a definition of form oft lost to both Egyptian and Asian style arts- resulting in an odd hybrid of features that fit the feel of the deck perfectly.
My only objection are points at which she plainly wasn't sure of what to draw for a card's meaning...the most outstanding example of which is the VIII of Wands. All that appears upon the card is a pip count- a rather disappointing card after the lush beauty of the other cards.
The backs of the cards are absolutely beautiful as well- and would be fully reversable if not for US Games having stamped their logo in one corner. That's no fault of the artist however, so I do not count it as a negative in her or the deck's case.
If you are looking for a solid Waite deck with lovely art, traditional symbolism and a welcoming feel: this deck is for you. It may not be quite as deep as other decks in the symbolism- it's simply cut and dried but beautifully rendered adaptions of the standard Waite deck with an Egyptian theme- but it's lovely naetheless.
