This review is from: Visconti Tarot (Cards)
I don't give this a good because there are several problems with this edition of the cards. To start with the positive, the Visconti Tarot istelf is a wonderful set of images and the gold reproduction of this set is good. Now for the negatives, which I believe make this set not worth the money. The modern images are very poor artistically and quite "pre-raphaelite" in character rather than early rennaisance as the original image cards are, so the faces of the modern character cards, especially the queens is very saccharine, sweet and out of character with the old images on the major arcana. The second issue I have with these is the quality of the card used, it is thin and flimsy, surely a heavier grade could have been used given the cost of these cards, so depite being beautiful to look at, they are certainly not beautiful or pleasing to the touch.
