First edition of the 79-card oracle deck by James R. Eads. Cards measure standard size, 2.75 by 4.75 inches. Cards have matte UV varnish and deep labradorite blue edges. Comes in a sturdy, beautifully illustrated clamshell box with holographic foil accents. Includes a 100-page guidebook with suggestions for getting to know the deck, several tarot spreads, and meanings for each card. The book provides clear, concise insight through vivid stories. This deck is for you if:
- you love the notion of the tarot reimagined to explore the space between lives: The deck starts with Death.
- switching up suit names is cool with you. The traditional suits become Lotuses (Water), Embers (Fire), Birds (Air) and Trees (Earth).
- you appreciate non-hierarchical court cards where each one represents an archetype: the Entertainer, the Peacemaker, the Composer, the Commander.
- EXTRA PANORAMA. Each suit ties back to the beginning: The Tens connect back to the Aces. Effing GENIUS.
