artist's page

Each card has a fairy or folk tale illustration  with an ornate border. Strength is VIII, Justice is XI. The suits are Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles.The Court cards are entitled Page, Knight, Queen and King. Designations, and major arcana titling are standard, except: the Hierophant is the ‘High Priest’, and the Devil is titled ‘Chains’. The most major change from the traditional is that Wands are associated with Air and Swords with Fire as always in Lisa Hunts decks.

For the Major Arcana, the card number is at the top, in Roman numerals, and the card title across the bottom. The Pips show the number in text and the suit across the bottom of the card. The Court cards show the card title and suit across the bottom of the card. The backs are cream colored, with a central circular motif, leaving the backs reversible. The artwork is done in a fantasy style, using watercolors. Earthy colours dominate this deck.
