The Tarot of Mermaids

by Pietro Alligo & Mauro de Luca

The Tarot of Mermaids
Price: $22.95

Number of cards in deck: 78

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

Back of card: Aqua, based on the Magician (shown above). May be inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 64 pages, 2.6 x 4.67 inches, or 65 x 119 mm. Instructions in English, Italian, Spanish, French & German.

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

Comments: The Tarot of Mermaids is so obviously an excuse for topless females that it hardly merits further comment. (Note above: All the Knights, as well as all the Knaves in this deck, are topless females.) Lo Scarabeo has a well-known weakness for bare female breasts.

Notes included with the deck make a sanitized start on the widespread legends of mer-creatures around the world. Despite the best efforts of Lo Scarabeo (and Disney) to trivialize the subject, there is a lot of good, serious, material that could well be developed into a significant tarot deck. It is a pity the urge to present female nudes overwhelmed it.
