Why are Tarot cards so big? Yes I know about not making the detail too small. But this Lady has done a superlative job with her fine artwork. The detail is crisp & easy on the eye. The cards are smaller than most but oh so manageable! I can shuffle these with ease without any bouncing off the clients head and onto the floor! As a Tattoo Artist myself, I can appreciate the enormous effort going into creating 78 works of art! Yes, this is a fine deck and worthy of a place in your collection. And it's in the Rider Waite Tradition which must be another bonus.
