The Egyptian Tarot has 78 cards in typical Ancient Egyptian artistic style, line-drawn in brown on a mottled papyrus-like background. Majors have themed titles and Tarot-like scenes, while the minors have decorated pips in suits of Pentacles, Cups, Swords and Sceptres and courts of Slave, Warrior, Mistress and Master. The drawings were produced as illustrations for the 1901 book, Practical Astrology.
