Adrian Tarot deck

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.65 x 5.3 inches; or 67 x 135 millimeters.

Back of card: Black, with fancy white lines that outline two side by side pointed things. Reminds us of a camera lens diagram, or a Klingon warship. Can be inverted if you're not fussy.

Publisher: AGM AGMuller. Printed in Switzerland.

Comments: This is a computer-manipulated, photographically based deck. This is - to us - a fairly uninspired deck, except for a neat trick played with the major arkana cards:

Using the Lovers Card (6) as a reference, lay cards 1-10 in a line, top to bottom. Then lay cards 11-19, in reverse order, in a line to the right (eg, 11 at the bottom, 19 at top). The result is two shadowy outlines of the male & female figures in the Lovers card. The head of the male is visible in the background of the Magician card, above. As it happens, the head of the man's penis turns up on the right hand side of the Lovers card, though you'll never notice unless you really look for it. The male image represents the Tree of Life, the female image is the Tree of Knowledge. The remaining major arkana cards bridge the two. That's the idea, at any rate. We could only make out the images on half the cards. The booklet claims there's a diagram, but there isn't.

Notice the pip cards are just pips. There is also fancy line work on all the cards (similar to what's on the back), for which we have no explanation. So enjoy this deck.
