"Promotional piece published in 1967 by the Brown Company of New York. The oversized cards are each printed on a different type or color of paper as a demonstration of the different product lines offered by Brown. Several artists contributed artwork to the deck, including David Palladini, creator of the Aquarian and New Palladini tarots."The cards are very large, measuring 8.5 inches tall x 5.5 inches wide (21.5 cm tall x 14 cm wide).The card stock varies in color and texture from card to card, as it is, after all, a deck designed to sell paper. In all cases, the cards are uncoated.The card backs are non-reversible -- each back provides its card meaning (thus, every back is different).La Justice is VIII (8) and La Force is XI (11). Le Mat is unnumbered.
