Mayer printed only 700 copies and added a card (front in german and back in english) where he gave some explications about the deck. This special card has the handwritten signature of Mayer and a number.
After the death of the german printer in 2012, Giordano Berti bought some copies of the deck and added a handmade box in form of a book and a LWB titled “Sola-Busca Tarot. Secret code of Alchemy” that explains briefly the history of the deck, the significances of the 78 cards and a simple method to use them.
The card images are in original size (78 x 146 mm) but with an additional border around the cards rendering them a bit larger (150 x 82 mm ). The paper is slightly rough and opaque, about 0,5 mm thick. The cards are not laminated. The backs are blank.
