It is a modern deck in the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition. Keeping time-honored symbolism and imagery, but losing the medieval context, this the This Might Hurt Tarot Deck is designed to be both easy to read and highly relatable.
The cards themselves measure 4.75"x 2.75" and are printed on high-quality 350 gsm matte art paper. Each card has a shiny gilded edge to add just a bit of magic, available in gilded pearl or holographic black. The deck comes in a solid cardboard box with gold foil and magnetic closure, complete with a guidebook with introduction, card descriptions, and a full page black and white image of each card.
The deck, like most tarot decks, will consist of 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. All of the court cards, and a few other select Minor Arcana cards, are portraits of real people in my life.
