This deck is published by very popular Lo Scarabeo.After looking at the 52 cards, I liked them in a subtle kind of way. The art work reminds me of the Wong Tarot Revelations deck that came out a few years back, which of course I own as well.The instructions in the deck were on 3 cards in Italian, and a tiny English insert with what is suppose to be instructions which it is I guess.
The meanings of the cards are not in the instruction leaflet, bummer. The cards have pictures on them and the regular 52 deck is inserted which corresponds to the cards. There are 4 languages, Italian, French, English, German -simple keywords on the card.To me, this deck has a subtle sadness to it, not much overwhelming joy but usual very good decks are like that because it is important not to concentrate too much on breathtaking artwork. The reason for that is it leaves little for psychic interpretation. If you have a picture hanging on the wall that is intricately painted so there is no mistaking what the object of the painting is, you may not look beyond it. But if you have the same object that is less defined….you fill in it with your mind/emotions.
I have to laugh, why is it that almost all fortune telling decks have an enemy and thief card? equivalent to snake and mice in the Madame Lenormand decks.A blond woman, eine blonde frau, una bianda, une blonde is the 8 of hearts. The picture is of a young woman in a long gown showing the bottom of one of her legs. She is wearing a lace up shoe, looks like a ballet slipper. Her dress is muted green with a pinkish short shawl around her shoulders. In her right hand it appears she hold some type of flower close to her nose. Her hair is up in a dog bone bun with red ribbons. Around her neck is a long chain with a cross. In her left hand she holds what I thought was a pinkish hanky but I see tiny leaves so it probably is a few flowers. In the right hand upper corner is the number 43.
Ok so now if I was doing a reading, it is evident that this represents a blond woman excluding of course the black hair. Blond is a light colour-it is a positive feeling. More on these cards for sure once I compare them to the Wahrsagekarten deck and Lenormand deck.
