Fairy Tarot by Antonio Lupatelli © 2000 Lo Scarabeo
Distant relatives of the gnomes, the fairies are very playful beings who carry out naughty jokes at times. The fairies, however, also like to help humans in very practical ways like through these cards.The Fairy Tarot is actually enchanted: it allows reality to be confronted using a positive attitude, it helps play down all kinds of trouble and easily overcomes problems objectively. The suits reflect the Fairy lifestyle (Acorns, Hearts, Leaves, and Bells).
The universe of the fey is seen here in powerful colours, expressing joy and happiness that grows card after card. With great attention given to the symbols and the divinatory structure, the fey move freely through cultures and mythology to bring life to an extraordinary world that enchants and fascinates.
Spirit of Flowers Tarot
Fairies and little magicians peer out from the cards in this deck that pay homage to the celebrated Anglo-Saxon tradition of the “spirit children”. The charming illustrations combine the meaning of each flower with that of the arcana, the classical iconography of which is underlined by the floral choice.
Tarot of the Lepidopteran People
The artists says this is a reflection of his personal interest in insects. Lepidopterans are butterflies and moths. It was created in the spirit of Tarot of the Cat People and those Faerie Decks. This is a 23 card deck. The extra card is unnumbered and titled “Lepidoptera”.
