Comes in a two-part box with a booklet. Both the booklet and cards fit snugly in the box. There is also a bigger set available, with a great big guidebook, but I figured this booklet would do πŸ™‚ The big set is so much more expensive, I didn’t think the bigger book would be worth it for me.

Booklet: 80 pages, printed in brown ink. Introduction with history of Druids and Wicca. Each of the Majors get one page, with a small picture, keywords and meanings both upright and reversed. The Minors get a half page, and the minors are listed by number and rank rather than suit. There’s a spread for six cards, with a sample reading.

Note: these cards will definitely be trimmed, because they are seriously huge! Still haven’t decided if I’ll keep the stone borders or take it all, or if I’ll keep the titles if I decide to remove the inner borders… The deck is quite thick, and I fear it’ll still be too big for me to shuffle if I don’t trim it completely :/
