The Gilded Tarot Deck & Book Set

by Barbara Moore & Ciro Marchetti

The Gilded Tarot Deck & Book Set
Price: $24.95

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.76 x 4.6 inches, or 70 x 117 mm.

Back of card: A burnished golden frame set inside black edging (as on the front). Inside, a blue circle & at the center, the Sun, as seen on the Sun card, above. Top & bottom, fancy Fleur de Lys. May be inverted, but does not contrast all that well with the front of the cards.

Book included: Yes, 5.17 x 8 inches, or 132 x 203 mm, 150 pages. Illustrated, but no actual cards are shown.

Publisher: Llewellyn Worldwide. Printed in the US.

Comments: Of the two people responsible for this deck, Barbara Moore was first exposed to the tarot around 1992. Judging by her book, she has a pop understanding of tarot. By contrast, the illustrator, Ciro Marchetti, seems to have little connection to tarot (see his website, Ciro Marchetti.com). It might just be my eyes, but the Magician (above) looks like a portrait of the artist.

The packaging is flimsy. From printer to publisher to wholesaler to retail store (eg, us), the box is already banged up. Llewellyn should do better. Includes a black nylon storage bag.
