I have three versions (this one, the borderless edition, and the old 70s yellow deck) of the RWS tarot and this is by far my favorite deck. None of the cards in my deck had any of the printing issues another reviewer had with her deck. I almost didn't buy this deck based on that review but after looking at the cards on this site and in youtube deck comparison videos and reading the thought process that went into the Art Restoration Deck, I decided I'd try my luck. I'm very glad I did. It's beautiful. You can actually see what's going on in the cards. The lines aren't as heavy and the blacks aren't as saturated. The backgrounds and blacks look like beautiful watercolor washes with texture and variations and not just solid block of colors like you see in certain printings.
There's a lot of talk about cardstock these days in tarot reviews and it seems like people want really thick slabs of cardboard for the cards of their tarot decks. This deck has thinner cards which makes it easier to riffle shuffle and that's what I want to be able to do so it works out well for me.
I'll post links to some comparison pictures I took, hopefully they work. Overall, I highly recommend this deck. I was so happy to learn that someone actually made the effort to reproduce the original 1909 deck. Also, the ultimate deal maker for me was that this deck is made in the USA and that each deck is printed to order. This isn't some mass produced deck made across the world at the hands of cheap labor.
