This deck has exceeded my expectations - which were already high! The box is sturdy and substantial, no flimsiness here. In a rich red and black colour scheme it also has the figure of Dracula from the 4 of Garlic Flowers (Pentacles) on the cover. The card description talks about Dracula guarding his hoard of gold and ancient treasure . . . and sure enough there are glorious treasures inside this box.
Again, once inside, the quality of the 228 page book - and the cards themselves - is stunning. This is quality way beyond I would expect for this price. Now I know why I had to wait for so long to get my hands on this deck . . . Robert Place clearly wanted a publisher who would do "the right job". The cards are beautiful, glossy with white borders, and will clearly stand up to being used. I loved the book . . . packed with interesting and useful information (and plenty of it!) plus a card by card description, linking to the Dracula mythology. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I love it and highly recommend it.
