The first edition of the Egorov Tarot was published by the Wiener Spielkartenfabrik Fred. PIATNIK & Söhne (Vienna, Austria) in 1992 and bears the production number 1975.
The instructions as well as the design are by Alexander Egorov. The Egorov Tarot is a self-named tarot that follows the system as compiled by Arthur Edward Waite. However, if one is not familiar with the names of the cards of the major arcana as the names attributed to the cards by Egorov are sometimes different. One has to follow the numbers of the cards to be sure… The design resembles that of Russian icons, nicely designed in black and gold.
