The figures and scenes in the Hudes Tarot cards are very medieval/Renaissance style, and maps, constellation charts, astrology and alchemy all make an appearance in this pretty but somewhat melancholy Tarot deck.

Hudes Tarot review by Moongold
Something about these hauntingly evocative images made me purchase a copy of this deck some months ago, and then I almost traded it straight away because the images go straight to the core and make one reel with identification. It pays to take a breath and to explore this beautiful deck because it has much to offer in terms of insight and fresh vision.
The deck is a traditionally structured Tarot with 78 cards - 22 Major Arcana, 16 Court cards (King, Queen, Knight and Page) and 40 Minors in four suits. Although it is an Rider Waite Smith derived deck, the images and intent of the designer lead to interpretations which vary significantly in many ways from commonly understood RWS meanings.
