I love Italian decks or ones with ancient art on them and this does not disappoint at all. Totally stunning from card to card. However a word of caution to those of you who may be just starting out. I have been reading cards for over 25 years so, it didnt take long to adapt to these, But if you are wanting to learn and start reading I wouldn't recommend this deck for you yet. It has 97 cards, which may confuse the beginner, and the artwork on the some of the cards is not truly traditional to the tarot that we all know. The renaming of the Migicain, Emperor, Hireophant, Empress, Tower and Judgement may confuse you a little when you start using other tarot more traditional decks. The High Priestess is also omitted which knocks some of the card's usually card numerical values down by one. However, if you are totally new to tarot and think that this will be the deck you stick to, them it is worth getting to know it, but you will have to invest in a separate, more detailed book to help you understand what the traditional cards mean. Unfortunately, the new additional cards arent explained very well either in the booklet provided, so you really do need to have good intuition and make your own interpretations, as any true tarot reader should do anyway.
