Universal Tarot Cards (Lo Scarabeo). Author: A.E. Waite - Reinterpreted by - Roberto De Angelis
78 Cards and booklet. Card size: 66 x 120 mm
The esoteric indications by the great English occultist reinterpreted by the master painter Roberto De Angelis.
From the booklet:
The Italian master illustrator Roberto De Angelis was inspired by the iconography described in A. E. Waite's works while recreating the same symbolic immediacy of the tarots by Pamela Colman Smith in a modern style.
Much of that which has been written about the Waite Tarots can also be applied to the Universal Tarots. There are, however, some substantial differences. The softer and more dynamic style of De Angelis captures some of the symbolic synthesis and sobriety of the pre-Raffaelesque illustrations. In exchange, the more modern and realistic aspect is more consistent with our time and more in tune with the thinking of contemporary man.
In fact, knowing the meaning of the card is not enough for reading the tarots. We must attune to the image, allow it to speak to our intuition, and to suggest and guide during consultation. This knowledge was the basis of Waite's decision to create allegorical images for the minor arcana as well, in order to provide a pictorial key for the reading.
I feel like saying; the same but different. These designs do an excellent job of reinterpreting the classic Waite – Smith designs. The artistry is amazing, as is the image quality.
The images in the Universal tarot, like the original Waite – Smith designs, illustrate the different layers of meaning in each card perfectly. The Universal Tarot is ideal for anyone wanting to learn about tarot, while also intricate and symbolic enough to satisfy any professional reader.
