5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional yet readable 30 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback
The more I use the Marseille Cat Tarot, the better I like it! As cross-pollinations go, I think this is a very successful one. It has all the traditional Marseille colouring and imagery, yet adds in cute thematic touches that make it more intuitively readable. Lo Scarabeo also chose to remove their usual multi-lingual titles and just go for the traditional French and more international English (sorry, France, c'est la vie!)

The traditional side shows up clearly with the High Priestess and King of Pentacles who, other than being cats, demonstrate purely Marseille-style colouring and symbolism. However, not all the Majors are purely traditional. Death takes quite a leap away from the Marseille version, with a skeletal figure laying down his scythe to tickle a ginger cat's white tummy. Behind them is an atmospheric sea and skyscape, with churning waves and a dark horizon torn by lightning.

On the Ace of Swords we once again have absolutely standard Marseille fare, from the crown and sword to the two different branches draping to the sides. However, a themed Rider Waite Smith (RWS) element is added with the cat's paw lofting the sword. Then, on the Eight of Cups, we have the added vignette of a cat at the centre of the card, looking back over his shoulder. A wink to the RWS idea of leaving behind an emotional situation, unsure of what lies ahead, though without the suggestion of determination and seeking a higher truth.

The Minors, too, add variety to the RWS vignettes. For example, we see three trepidatious kitties in a boat for the Six of Swords, and in the Eight of Swords we have a male cat suspended by his arms, rather than a female hemmed in by swords in the ground.
