At first glance, these cards seem to owe much to the Rider-Waite Tarot. That is perhaps an illusion – it is more the colours which are reminiscent of the Rider-Waite Tarot than the actual designs. Each card is named in English and Hungarian at the foot. The cards are unevenly cut and have a glossy finish. Grey marbled backs. See the booklet►
