Lo Scarabeo Tarot

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. In imagery, the cards seem like more of a blend of the latter two, but they have plenty of scope for comparative study as well as for readings.
The Lo Scarabeo Tarot emerged on the scene in 2007 with two ambitious thrusts behind its design. First it sought to merge the three major Tarot schools together: the Traditional Rider-Waite-Smith, the Historical Tarot de Marseille, and the Systems-Based Thoth Tarot into a single deck with recognizable elements from each. Secondly, these cards were meant to tastefully commemorate the twentieth year of the Lo Scarabeo brand as its flagship deck and represent the company worldwide in the years to come. Needless to say, this was a bold undertaking for the team at Lo Scarabeo to see whether they could combine all three of these traditions in a single pack of cards. (aeclectic.net)
