Back of card: Some bold, symmetric black linework. The pattern behind this, consisting mostly of two disks, is not, as one is gray-bluish, the other golden yellow. So you will know when these cards are inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 28 pages, 2.6 x 4.65 inches, or 67 x 117 mm. Text by Susan Hudes.

Comments: There is a card with the deck which reads, "Susan Hudes is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. She is a painter and an illustrator currently residing in New York City."

"The beauty of medieval art and the symbolic nature of mythology serve as her inspiration for the creation of Hudes Tarot. She combines the soft, luminous qualities of watercolor with antique maps, constellation charts and marbled paper to create the collages in these paintings. The magical nature of medieval thought combined with the themes of alchemy and astrology appear throughout this special tarot deck."

Court cards are King, Queen, Knight, Page. Suits are Swords, Wands, Cups & Pentacles. The antique map backgrounds are mostly confined to the King & Queen cards. Constellation charts turn up as a background in some of the major arkana cards. There is a Germanic Medieval/Renaissance flavor to this deck that reminds us of Albrecht Durer.
