It offers a more abstract portrayal of the symbols, with forceful and powerful illustrations that convey strong and convincing messages to its readers. The deck can be described as surreal and dreamy. The appeal of each tarot deck; from the original release to the consequent versions consistently looks haunting and bizarre.
The Margarete Petersen tarot cards were initially published as tarot postcards.  The deck, published in 2002 in Germany, is made up of 78 cards, consisting of 22 cards for the Major Arcana and 56 cards for the Minor Arcana.
