About the Book

From Tarot Nusantara on blogspot:

[Tarot Nusantara] is a self-published deck from Indonesia and has all of the charm of a self-published deck.  Beautiful images and colors. The artist did a wonderful job translating the Rider Waite theme but in traditional Indonesian dress,  colors and scenes.

The following brief description is quoted from Aeclectic Tarot:

The Tarot Nusantara is an Indonesian published 78-card deck. The art has a South-East Asian flavour but sticks closely to the original Rider-Waite symbolism. The titles of the deck, and the companion book, are printed in Bahasa Indonesian.

For those who aren’t well-versed in Indonesian, the artist’s blog offers translation into 12 additional languages (be sure to reselect your language each time you click on a new page).

As of the third edition,

The pack consist[s] of one deck 78 cards along with pendulum and tarot pouch in a black cardboard box.

Card size : 5×8 cm
Pouch size : 25×15 cm
Pendulum : varies shape in resin with 15cm chain.
Box dimension : 11.5×13.3 cm

The deck is available on Etsy for $35 but since it ships from Indonesia, expect to spend an additional $45 or so on shipping (to the U.S.) A fourth edition is pending and is purported to be borderless, so stay tuned!
