This historical tarot deck, created in the Marseilles style, is based upon the original designs by famous Swiss kabbalist and occultist Oswald Wirth. The 22 Major Arcana first appeared in 1889 in a hand-colored limit edition deck.
The 22 Major cards have French titles and the Hebrew letters attributed to each card by EliphasLevi, and popularized by Oswald Wirth. This authorized full 78-card deck is printed with vivid colors on gold background.
The 56 Minor Arcana cards present the four traditional suits of Swords, Batons, Cups and Coin. The pack includes a booklet of commentary by Stuart R. Kaplan on the Oswald Wirth Tarot Deck.
