The Aquarian decks by Morgan have cardbacks with different shades of red (or blue). They all came in the black box with the Fool on the cover, but there are several variations of the cardbacks:
Dark blue back
Blue and white back
Pink with red ourobouros
Red/orange with black ourobouros
Red with white ourobouros
Black with white ourobouros
The Aquarian is a
"traditional" deck, consisting of 78 cards, 22 in the Major
Arcana and 56 in the Minor Arcana, divided into four
suits : Cups, Swords, Pentacles, and Rods. There is a
white border around the cards. In the majors the card title is
worked, often elaborately, into the design and a Roman
numeral tops each card. The minors are titled at the
bottom of each card.
My Morgan-Aquarian came with a lot of extras, which in principle belong to another deck (The New Tarot for the Aquarian Age): the Windows of Tarot book, Royal Maze poster, The book T- Age of Aquarius, the Book G- The Royal Maze
and an Instruction book. It also has an additional smaller LWB and a custom bag.
Since 1975 the Aquarian is produced by US Games, in their version the cards shifted a bit in color tones and the box changed to the tuck box.The US Games Version has the blue and white backs only.
