A gloriously sumptuous extravaganza of riotously bright, colourful, fabulous quality cards. Based on the RWS system.The cards are VERY thick, which I love, (but not for riffle shufflers). Images are borderless. The backs are of the same design as the box cover, but instead of a picture, the centre has a kind of church window effect with a floral motif at the centre and are reversible.
The card edges are gilded, and the card dimensions are 4.75 x 2.75" and the height of the deck stacked is 1.25" The finish is glossy, but not high gloss.
I've been reading with these for a couple of months and the images are easily readable for anyone familiar with RWS. They really speak to me, but that issue is, as always, subjective!
The 160pp accompanying book is just as beautiful as the cards. full colour throughout with a sturdy matte gilded cover. Inside are four spreads to start you off, and colour illustrations of each card, with the meanings.Dimensions are 5 x7.75 x 0.5"
The box that contains the cards and book is also of high quality, very sturdy with a magnetic closure at the side and the same height and width as the book.
I often send back decks with beautiful artwork because the quality is poor, but this deck doesn't disappoint on that level at all!
The only criticism I have is that the stunning art deserves to be on larger cards.
