When you first lay eyes on this tarot deck, you are unsure whether it is a book or a box. The outside packaging for this is so beautifully designed, in a dark blue colour with a design inlaid in gilt.
Upon opening the box, the inside is decorated with a variety of moon phase illustrations and hourglasses within a chess-board-like configuration. There is a book inside the box, with the same image as the front of the box, this time in colour. Underneath the book is the deck of cards, 53 in all.
The guidebook talks a little about the history of tarot, as well as gives examples of ways to read the cards within. The back of the cards has a beautiful design similar to that of the front of the box and book. However, they feature a star in the centre rather than the sun.
