The original Wirth Tarot was a deck of majors based on the Marseille Tarot, but with the addition of many more overt occult symbols. The Symbolic Tarot of Wirth completes Wirth's original project with the addition of a carefully researched and compiled lower arcana that completes Wirth's occult system of Tetrads.
Oswald Wirth is the last and greatest author of the "French School" of Tarot. More than any other deck, the Wirth Tarot expresses the powerful symbolic and esoteric depth of each Arcanum - even the Minor ones - through the Tetrad system, conceived by Wirth himself and studied by the Italian scholar Mirko Negri.
This beautiful deck is a treasure for readers and collectors alike. It is printed in five colors; the fifth color is a special golden hue that gives the cards a truly unique visual essence.

This set is very nicely printed, the gold being one of the reasons I got it. The major arcana is lovely and that’s another reason I got this set, the design being olde world and evocative. The minor arcana pip cards are uninteresting and while they’ve done a good job matching the style of the kings and queens to the original major arcana drawings, they are different enough that it’s a little jarring. But overall I think this will be a really nice set to read from.
