This deck is precisely what it purports to be; the pictures on the box are an accurate representation of the artwork in the deck itself. The deck design is utilitarian in nature, and so might be appropriate for game play. Neoclassical artwork leaves me cold, but if that's what you like then you should expect to be very pleased by this deck. Though not in my favorite style, I must admit that the engravings are quite fine and the illustrations are beautiful examples of their period.
