This edition of the Tarot of the Sidhe has 78 cards with original, colourful Faerie paintings. There also exists a sold-out  majors-only version from Adam McLean.

The artist claims that the deck is painted through direct inspiration from the Sidhe, (pronounced Shee, the ancient Gaelic name for the Faery race).

The cards use original, non-derivatory symbolism within traditional Tarot structure. The Major Arcana retain their traditional titles, with the following exceptions: Pan replaces the Devil and the Hierophant becomes the Elder. Justice is VIII, Strength is XI. The suits are: Dreamers / Air, Warriors / Fire, Dancers / Water and Makers / Earth. The Court card titles are King, Queen, Prince and Princess. The backs are a solid black, with a non-reversible center image in gray of the Great Glyph of the Sidhe.

The deck and 96 page companion book-with a foreword by John Matthews- come in a sturdy cardboard box with a lift-off top.
