Terrific for carrying round,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Visconti Mini Tarot (Cards)
Terrific for carrying round, and very nicely produced. The small size makes the colours really pop, and the detailing is excellent. Just one question: why the peculiar Tower and Devil cards? These are missing from the originals and are usually designed to match the style of the rest of the deck. Here someone has decided that The Tower should be a rather suburban-looking viaduct set awkwardly inside a theatre (I think), whilst The Devil is two unmistakably modern faces with a body trapped between them. These jar badly.
The gold-colouring works well on the wands and swords, which are stunning. The detailing in the cups and coins, though, isn’t great, and these look somewhat flat by comparison.
The court and major arcana have come a long way from the originals, and look a little like 1950s advertisements for face cream: radiant pink complexions, perfectly quoiffed demi-waves, pouty lips, beauty-queen stance.
But these are quibbles, and for the price this is a great set. Lovely.
