I couldn't find images for this deck, so I took some photos of all the cards to share here with you. Why doesn't Lo Scarabeo do more to put more pictures out of their new releases? I know they are always releasing new decks. But, for card readers, we need to see more images to know if a deck will work for us or not. Fortunately, I think this deck will do very well for me!
A little more about this edition, including card stock & size:
Lo Scarabeo is celebrating 30 years with this limited numbered edition of 1,987 copies to honor the year they were founded in Italy. Artwork is by Fabio Listrani, artist of the Night Sun Tarot.
They say this limited edition is printed on the highest quality paper. It is, indeed, a thicker card stock, but it's also glossier than their standard decks. Which is why I pre-ordered the standard release of the Santa Muerte Tarot. LS's standard decks are thinner than I prefer to read with, but I like that they aren't glossy. And they do shuffle and spread out easily! I would love to use this for readings this month. I hope the standard edition will have the older card stock and not this "higher quality" stock I hear they are printing some decks with. UPDATE: the standard release has the exact same card stock.
Coffin box: 7" x 4" (178mm x 102mm)
Deck: 4.75" x 2.75" (120mm x 70mm)
Book: 4.75" x 2.75" (120mm x 70mm) 128 pages on glossy paper with a few of the cards in color. English (pg. 5-54), Italian (55-68), French (69-82), Spanish (83-94), Portuguese (95-106), Russian (107-118) and Chinese (119-128).
At first glance, I like how the suit colors are similar to the Albano Waite Tarot's color system. It is the RWS-style deck I read with the most and prefer to most RWS. I also LOVE how the 10 of each suit is a painting of a butterfly/moth showing the culmination and completion of each level!
I still need to read with it to give it a better overview, but my first impressions are very positive.
I'll post more about it later after I've spent some time with it. Here are the photos of the cards. Click on each image to make it bigger.
