Pour la voyance: Ce tarot est très beau de dessin et de coloris, du même format que le tarot de Marseille traditionnel (cet à dire 6.6 cm x 12 cm) il fonctionne bien, il est visuellement très agréable car les cartes sont expressives et à la fois mystérieuses, ce qui en fait un très bon support de voyance. (il y a 2 cartes un peu différentes du traditionnel: le diable et le soleil, mais la symbolique reste similaire. Le dos présente un motif d'arabesques florales de couleur verte pas désagréable,ni trop présent, les cartes sont bien plates et de bonne épaisseurs, la couleurs beige un peu passée en fait un jeu qui prendra une belle patine avec le temps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5old world charm, has, Old Gypsi Fortune Telling Feel to them23 janvier 2003
Par El Brujo - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Ancient Italian Tarots has to be one of my most favorite decks. Reason being, they have an Old World charm, that when used for giving readings, they take you back in time. They really have this Fortune Telling Feel to them, that I am crazy about. This deck is in the tradition of the various Marseilles decks, but instead of hard looking wood blocked images, these are drawn. The style is that expected from the Renaissance era. Of all the classic tarot decks that are in the market today, these are my most favorite. They are beautiful, and really do inspire the intuition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5One of the best non-Marseilles traditional decks13 avril 2003
Par S. Gustafson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Llewellyn and Lo Scarabeo have out 2 different decks that are based on Carlo della Rocca's engraved versions of the traditional tarots. This is the one I recommend. The other one, they call the "Classical Tarot." That one looks newer than this one. There are some minor variations on the pip cards. This one looks like a reproduction of a genuinely old deck. More importantly, they have not narrowed the image areas of the cards in order to fit a set of rather odd keywords on them, which they did to the Classical Tarot. The images here are almost entirely consistent with the Tarot de Marseille symbolism on all the major points. These, however, are done with fine-lined engraving instead being based on blocky woodcuts. This deck will appeal to those who want a traditional deck but who find the art of the Marseilles deck hard to work with.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A really nice deck.24 juillet 2003
Par Kiana - Publié sur Amazon.com
I got these, because of course with your first tarot deck you should get the one that calls out to you. I enjoy the pictures and the simple fact that they are old looking. Just adds to the charm of reading them. This is my first deck and i am a beginner, and dont recommend getting this if this will be your first deck, but if it does call out to you then do get it. The one thing about these cards is knowing when the meanings are reversed in the Minor Arcana. I believe its the Wands and the Swords that have the number on both ends. For me it just means a little more studying and getting to know my cards better, for when i do start reading them. What i also like about these cards is that they are smaller than most decks, and easier to shuffle if you have small hands like myself. All in all, this is a nice deck for those who want an old looking deck, as well as the history behind it also.

4.0 étoiles sur 5Old Look Tarot12 novembre 2011
Par JaydeeLin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I like the old feel and look of the cards. The illustrations are appropriate too. A friend of mine also bought the cards but was upset to find that the names of the cards are written in ... you guessed it! ... Italian. He finds it confusing but I have found it very easy to learn the cards. I'll be using mine for many years to come.

This is a very nice deck. The images resemble that of old woodblock/etchings with the limited coloring system that they had at the time. The reproductions are sharp and presented probably very true to the original.
The backs of the cards has a white/green design that seems as though it were made to resemble the original designs, but was probably not part of the original design... if it were, then it has been "computerized" to look very crisp and sharp, which is an unwelcome contrast to the "true" images on the cards face. Eg, the green is a single "paint bucketed" green, without gradients or imperfections as are found on the actual card images. A small gripe, but the design is rather nice.
The cards are a semi-gloss, as most of the mass produced playing cards would be today (sans the cross hatching in higher end playing cards to prevent "sticking") which contrasts against the old-style look of it. Would have been nice if they tried to keep it as authentic as possible, as opposed to a "cheap" imitation, but that would of course drive up the price significantly. The cards are inexpensive, and it still makes for a good buy.
