Also, Justice is 8 and Strength is 11, Waite changed them to fit his view of astrology, but in tarot decks before him they were as I have them, look at the Oswald Wirth tarot deck, for instance.)
Complete titles: For example "Queen of Cups" NO MORE astrological zodiac titles on the courts, in spite of what old reviews elsewhere might say.
When you order I will email you a picture showing what is available for the choices for the backs color and design.

Full 78 card deck, signed. Pouch included, with a cover card from my extras. Tell me your favorite cards, and I will see if I have one for you, I do not have everything.
Choice of colors for the backs, please ask me what is available.
The Borderless decks have the sharpest details.
There are some differences in the painting of the cards in the BBD and White Borders decks, not all cards, just a few. the Borderless is closest to the original paintings I made back in 1988-9. the other sets were made by altering the images on prints, so it is second generation images.
Let me know if you want to see sample cards that are sent to you in the mail.
