78-card deck that's half tarock, half cartomantic deck. The theme is the French revolution, and the trump/major arcana cards align figures and symbols from the historic uprising that correspond with the archetyal ideas... more or less. The pip cards, however, are nothing more than highly stylized renditions of playing card suits, with giant numbers in the center to indicate each cards' denomination. The court cards, as expected, show historical figures from late 18th-century French history. A nice idea which may have been more intriguing if the artwork had been less amateurish.
