It comes with two 70-page pamphlets, one in English and one in Spanish, by Prof. Luis Ortiz Munoz describing the historical personages represented on each of the 52 suited cards in the deck; the two pamphlets are housed in a folder. There are 2 Jokers, and a backed insert card in each deck. The cards are standard poker size, measuring 89mm x 63mm, with gold gilt at the corners.
