The Ancient Egyptian Tarot Deck & Book Set

by Clive Barrett

The Ancient Egyptian Tarot Deck & Book Set
Price: $26.95
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 3.2 x 4.75 inches, or 80 x 120 mm.

Back of card: Six vertical rows of small hieroglyphs, maroon on brown. Not symmetrical, but low contrast, so not a problem with inversion.

Books included: Yes, two. The first: Ancient Egyptian Journal, by Clive Barrett. 160 pages, 4.4 x 6.12 inches; or 111 x 155 millimeters, paperback. Other books in Element's new tarot series have been unillustrated, I presume this one also lacks illustrations.
The second: Ancient Egyptian Journal, a blank hardcover book with approximately 75 leaves/150 pages. Measurements: 4.4 x 6.12 inches; or 111 x 155 millimeters.

Packaging: Nicely done in a sturdy cardboard sleeve. Overall package measures 4.65 wide, 6.5 high, 2.6 deep (inches), or 117 x 164 x 65 mm.

Publisher: Element. Printed in China.

Comments: The usual major arcana, the usual minors, the usual suits. Court cards are King, Queen, Prince & Princess.

A pretty picture deck. There are few references to the Pyramids (thankfully). The book relates the major arcana to the Osirian myth & compares Osirian & Arthurian myth by means of the major arcana cards.
