Ciro Marchetti’s sumptuous Tarot Decoratif combines imagery from Tarots de Marseille and the RWS deck. Ciro has created a novel form of Tarot: while the cards have deep roots in Tarot de Marseille, the pips are far more illustrated.
Tarot Decoratif looks to the Tarot de Marseille for card titles, suit names, and card order, reversing Strength and Justice from the RWS. The Major Arcana figures also draw on Marseille imagery, with two women in L’Amoureux, a Bataleur wearing his lemniscate hat, and a Fool’s Dog biting The Fool’s trousers.
The Minor Arcana draws on both traditions of Tarot. Stained glass patterns in luscious colors provide backgrounds in all the cards. Each card includes its number of suit icons along with small scenes evoking the RWS. Ciro has reduced the RWS iconography to a few essential elements, and woven those designs into the harmonious arrangements of Epees, Batons, Coupes, and Derniers.
Tarot Decoratif was created for an audience of Tarot aficianados interested in a unique exploration by an acknowledged master of Tarot art. Here you will find captivatingly lovely cards rooted in Tarot’s oldest traditions, combined with much modern elements from the RWS deck. The resulting cards are unique, a novel deck with an elegance all its own.
