I must say I like the colors of this deck. Unfortunately, I don't like much else about it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad deck. It's just not for me. Gill Tarot follows the Rider Waite style of order and naming with only a few exceptions. The magician is a woman, the high preistess is simply the priestess and the heirophant is the priest. Court cards are princess, prince, queen and king. Suits are swords, wands, cups and discs. Pips are not illustrated, but show the number of the suit, sort of in the Marseilles style. Keywords are printed on all cards except the majors.
Cards measure about 3.25 by 4.25 inches and handle very well. This is the perfect size for me. Card stock is very good as well. I bought my deck second hand, and it appears to be quite durable.
It's hard for me to recommend this deck or not recommend it, as it just doesn't speak to me. I'm sure it will speak to some, so check it out. Collectors will want it, as we want them all!!
