Fairy Tarot - Antonio Lupatelli (Lo Scarabeo)
78 cards with booklet. Card size: 70 x 120 mm

From the booklet:
Fairies are teasing, magical creatures who live in the woods. Gifted with wings and with an incredible agility, these tiny little spirits endow the forest with life, thanks to their jokes and to their innate euphoria. In fact, unlike their cousins, the Gnomes, Fairies like neither work nor seriousness. Their principal characteristics is curiosity and cheerfulness and their greatest amusement is flying about the open, joking about with animals and with their calmer cousins. Rarely the victims of the Fairies succeed to catch and to punish those little tricksters, since they are particularly clever. These 78 cards described, through beautiful images, many aspects of the life of the Gnomes, lavishing advices and suggesting right and appropriate way of acting. The Magician's proposal was to create a similar system for the Fairies: their natural curiosity and their love for beautiful things would have helped the people to memorize the images and also to reflect on their meaning, thus instilling some rules in their mind. The sovereigns approved with enthusiasm and the Magician started immediately to work, calling the best artists of he Enchanted realm. The work needed many years, but in the end the outcome was better than the expectations: besides depicting all the most important figures of the Fairy tradition, the Magician succeeded in giving the cards the power to join and to form magical combinations, giving advice and warnings for any occasion.
If you like the fairy folk, you will love these cards. The images, especially on the Major Arcana cards, are just fun to look at. The cards are of excellent quality with lots of colour, although the pip cards are not as well illustrated as some modern decks. On that note, this deck uses alternate suits, with Hearts for Cups, Leaves for Swords, Bells for Pentacles and Acorns for Wands.
