Hudes Tarot

Written by  on January 10, 2016

This interesting deck by Susan Hudes was published in 1995 by U.S. Games Systems.

The imagery on the Minors follows Pamela Colman Smith; in fact, in the placement of the figures they seem to actually be based on another Waite-Smith derivative, the Aquarian Tarot by David Palladini. The Major imagery, however, is more original and individualistic. Read more…

Lo Scarabeo Tarot

Written by  on December 17, 2015

The Lo Scarabeo Tarot celebrates the twentieth year of the Italian publishing house, with a deck combining all three major traditions – the Tarot de Marseilles, the Rider-Waite and the Thoth.
