The China Tarot

by Der Jen

The China Tarot
Price: $19.95

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.6 x 4.72 inches, or 66 x 120 mm.

Back of card: Two elaborate dragons, one on the top half, inverted on the bottom half. Predominately blue & turquoise, with other accent colors. Looks Meso-American in style. May be inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 64 pages, 2.6 x 4.74 inches, or 66 x 120 mm. Instructions in English, Italian, Spanish, French & German.

Publisher: Lo Scarabeo. Printed in Italy, imported by Llewellyn Worldwide.

Comments: Very, very pretty faces in this deck. All are young, most are female, none are nude, almost all smile coyly. For all that, there seems to be little depth to this deck. I liked the US Games Chinese tarot deck much better, but that's now out of print. It's not any of my affair, but a number of the recent Lo Scarabeo decks have been weak. A guess would be that friends of the publisher are asking him for favors. Successful publishers always end up with friends, and those friends always want the same favor: To put their unique vision into print. Sooner or later, most all publishers end up doing it, but if carried to excess, it can doom the entire enterprise.
