Details of the Buckland Romani Tarot
Solandia's Summary: The Buckland Romani Tarot is based around English gypsies and has expressive and beautiful artwork.

It isn't a standard Rider-Waite type deck; among other things, suits have been renamed to Koshes, Koros, Bolers and Chivs, (Staves, Cups, Wheels and Knives), and the Magician is shown as a woman.
