Lo Scarabeo takes on the classic Wirth images, rendering the majors in an updated (some might say "cartoonish") style, and adding -- as others have done before -- the 56 minor arcana. How one feels about the results probably depends on how one feels about Wirth's deck in general; those who find the original a tad quaint may enjoy this modernized version, which does seem to retain most, if not all, of the deck's important symbolic elements. Others may object to the rather fanciful rendering of the minors, particularly for a deck that did not originally include the minors at all. This expanded rendition might arguably have fared better with simple "pipped" minors in the Marseille style... though the overall results seem tasteful enough.
