20 Years of Tarot
This is a large-format, well-illustrated history of the Lo Scarabeo company''s products from 1987 to 2007. Since I am a Tarot deck collector, I found this volume fascinating. I was surprised at how many of my decks are shown in this book--and how many of them were printed after 2007, and therefore not included. This book is of interest to Tarot collectors, artists who do Tarot-themed work, and general Tarot aficionados, but probably not so much to the general public. It''s nice having early sketches as well as the finished art work--you can see the development.
