I think this is one of the very best modern decks, but while I remember them I want to mention a few faults. I'll make a longer post later about its many good points.


1. The minor arcana are all drawn upon a plain cream field. There is no 'background' as such.

2. The cards are full of wonderful detail, but annoyingly that detail is very hard to discern.

3. There is a gold barleytwist frame to every card. I think a straight line would have been better.

4. The card titles are all done in Holy Union Regular font. I think that font is anachronistic to the era suggested by Scapini's style. An Uncial style would have been more appropriate.

5. The verso of the cards looks faded. This could be a printing effect.


These are all minor quibbles. I'll give my plus points a bit later.
