I find that this deck is the most beautiful of the Modern Italian Tarot, and very easy to read (if you are well versed in Roman Myth. and Astrology). The deck is lightly gilded, and has soft colors, offering strological symbols in the corners. The book offers brief but acceptable definitions of each card, upright and reversed. The book also offers a brief history lesson on the Italian Tarrochi and the Italian Art influences of artist/creator Brian Williams. If you have a strong Western Euro. art history background you are likely to already be familiar with his influences.
