Note that the four of vases is an illustrated card: even the number cards are illustrated in this deck, like in a Tarot deck.
The cards are a little bit flimsier than your modern deck, which apparently is more or less how they would be. I really like these and I need to incorporate them into a game in some way. I even spent an hour or so trying to figure out how they should be used in my history class, but nothing comes to mind just yet.
The guy I spoke to at the company's stall was a cool dude, very friendly. I'm going to have to get some more of their stuff at some point.
