Reviews

The setting for the deck is Europe during the Belle Epoque, the late 19th and early 20th century. The suits of this deck are each set in an eminently romantic city: Chalices are set in Venice, Pentacles in Rome, Wands in Paris, and Swords in Vienna. Each suit is dominated by a colour that compliments the romantic sentiment of its city setting.

Chalices and their generally positive outlook are hued in the golden–yellow colours of Venice; Swords, coquettish, flirtatious and daringly romantic are shaded in the blues of Vienna. Pentacles, earthy, natural, and practical in nature are the potent green of money and power associated with aristocratic Rome; and Paris' Wands are highlighted with the crimson-reds of passion, fire, and *amour fou* – crazy love.

This colour scheme is cleverly carried over into the Major Arcana, so that the reader can discern at a glance both the setting, and the emotion or intent associated with the card.

This deck follows a traditional format – 78 cards, 22 Major Arcana, 56 Minor Arcana. This is a fully illustrated deck. The Major Arcana is not titled, rather it has small Roman numerals at the base of each image. Nonetheless the cards are easily recognisable as a standard major arcana closely aligned with images from the Rider Waite Smith (RWS) Tarot. The Minor Arcana too, while not imitating the images from the RWS deck, project the sentiment of the card very clearly. The Court Cards, Page, Knight, Queen, and King are all indicated by small symbols at the top of the picture.

The cards measure 66 x 120 mm, which is a regular sized deck that fits comfortably into one’s hands (big or small). The card stock is good, sturdy without being heavy, flexible, and smooth with a low sheen finish. This tarot deck is easy to handle and shuffles nicely without sticking or being too slippery. The print quality is crisp and clear.

The artist, Guilia F. Massaglia has previously illustrated the Tarot Mucha – also set in the Belle Epoque. The artwork is detailed and delicate watercolours in a naturalistic palette of cool, calm colours. The print on the back, of crimson roses on a yellow background, is reversible.

The Little White Book by Emanuela Signorini has instructions in English, Italian, Spanish, French, and German. There is a brief introduction and overview of the Romantic Tarot. A simple four card spread it is included in the instructions. Each card is given a descriptive title such as The Secret Kiss (The Moon), The Cut Rose (Ace of Swords), or The Can Can (Four of Wands). This is followed by sage romantic advice, and be warned, it is not all hearts and flowers. Many of the cards illustrate the pitfalls and disappointments of love, and the divinatory meanings are unsparing, but not unkind. Finally there is a single word that summarises the essential spirit of the card such as – Trust, Control, Wounds, Courage, and so forth. The divinatory meanings are powerful, geared towards covering a vast array of possibilities regarding romance in its many forms from potential loves, established relationships, breaking hearts, lost love, pain and joy.

There are no reversed card meanings given for the Romantic Tarot.

If you find that many of your personal and/or professional tarot readings are about love and romance you will want to add this clever deck to your collection. If you like costume and historical decks, particularly those that focus on the Belle Epoque then the Romantic Tarot is a must. I would not recommend this deck for beginners because it is too specific in its focus.

Overall this is an intelligent and charming deck that is a welcome addition to the world of tarot. It would not surprise me if the Romantic Tarot went on to become a classic.
