Comes in a two-part box with an inlay for the cards (which works pretty well) and a guidebook.

Guidebook: 164 pages. The cards are unnumbered, but they’re given alphabetically in the book, so it’s easy enough to look them up. Each card gets two to three pages, with a small black and white photo. The text gives a description and historical context of the god (or titan), its meaning in divination, the shadow side of the card, a list of symbols for the deity, and finally a prayer or invocation (complete with instructions for how to do this, with props and whatnot). In the back of the book there’s a glossary of names and a guide to pronunciation. You also get a few spreads, from a single card draw to one with nine cards.

My favorite cards… one of these is the reason I got this deck πŸ™‚

This deck was originally published by Blue Angel with a different card back (gray with the deck title) and two fewer cards. I’m not completely sure, but I’ve seen someone say that the new cards in this version are Hermes and Odin.

Available on Amazon πŸ™‚

Full flip through here πŸ™‚

Note: I’ll do a proper review of this deck (when I’ve done some research), because I have a few things to say… Maybe after I get the Goddesses and Sirens deck as well, to compare them. (Because, damn it, now I need to complete the set…)
