ANNA.K TAROT DETAILS
There’s plenty to talk about this deck. But let’s look with the basics.
The dimensions of these cards at 2.75 by 4.00 inches fit comfortably in the palm, and since there are no borders, there’s plenty of space for crisp design. The card material is silky and smooth and is brittle with smooth edges and the nubs of perforation that were a problem for a few of the early editions. It appears that the more you play with this deck, the more comfortable they feel. This deck has the back in dark brown with four trees as well as a star pattern that can be reversed, and is appealing to the eyes. The deck is packaged in a sturdy wooden box that contains the deck as well as a guidebook.
The deck is a continuation of the RWS tradition , but with a few deviations. The LWB contains with 80 black and white pages, with simple to read text, which is an enjoyable alternative with other decks that try to pack too much into the space of a single page. A small photo from each of the cards is also included together with the meanings of the cards.
