The Egipcios Kier Tarot Deck

published under license from Editorial Kier, S.A., Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Egipcios Kier Tarot Deck
Price: $20.00
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.7 x 5.1 inches, or 69 x 130 mm.

Back of card: White, with 19 vertical & 19 horizontal thin tan lines that meet in the center of the card, forming a cross-hatch. May be inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 84 pages (a lot!), 2.5 x 4.9 inches, or 64 x 124 mm. Text by Stuart Kaplan.

Publisher: US Games. Cards printed in Belgium.

Comments: This starts as a regular tarot deck with 22 major arcana cards (the Fool is number 22, there is no zero). And there it stops. The remaining cards, numbered 23 through 78, are not arranged by suit, do not have pips and there are no court/face cards.

Along the bottom, each card has a title, number & a ruling planet. The major arcana cards also include a Hebrew character & an astrological sign. The minor arcanas have a letter-number designation which Kaplan does not explain. In the field in the top of the cards, all the cards carry Hebrew characters, which Kaplan names. Kaplan's notes are detailed and excellent.

I particularly like the format of the cards, the three broad bands. Each part of the card is significant & Kaplan explains all three.

A most interesting deck. I cannot find the name of the artist anywhere.
