Pack information: 78 cards with 14 page mini booklet Card dimensions: 120 x 66 mm Authors: Silvana Alasia Minor Arcana cards individually illustrated? Not really, although some different symbols are used Holding the power over the mysteries of ancient Egypt. This deck by Italian artist Silvana Alasia was first published in 1996. Her original paintings were first painted onto parchment. Much of the designs (especially the major arcana) have been based upon the designs of M.O.Wegener. Wegener had attempted to use designs that truly mimicked Egyptian art and combine this with the ideas of Paul Christian who in his research told of an authentic manuscript passed on by a Benedictine Monk. But there has been some doubt thrown onto some of the stories he told.
