Information straight from the author: "Paris is a modern metropolis that is constantly reborn of its own ancient myths." J. Philip Thomas first visited Paris in 1981, and the very moment he set foot on the Champs-Elysées, he had a visionary experience that lived on in his consciousness from that day forward. The deck's images are often inspired by the city's varied and breathtaking statuary. The suits are named after their elemental equivalents. The courts are designated "King", "Queen", "Stallion" and "Spirit". Several of the major arcana have been renamed as well -- for example, The High Priestess is titled "The Veil", while the Wheel is called "The Sphinx".
