I own two other Tarot decks from Marchetti . I find them all beautiful and a pleasure to work with.
Tarot Grand Luxe comes with a lovely bag for easy storage and no companion book.
Ciro Marchetti is very active on social media. He shared photos of the cards as he was creating them. I loved reading the background stories and how his life was influencing his creation of the cards.
I love the vibrant colours and how some images trespass over their borders.
Anyone familiar with the R.W.S. deck should have no problem reading with Tarot Grand Luxe.
That is not to say that Ciro has not gone creative with some of the cards, because he has.
The 2 of cups is one example and the 10 of swords is another. Personally I like both.
I also love the Court Cards. Strength, Justice and the Tower are some of my favourite cards in this deck.
The only thing I wish it was different, is the size of the deck.
The cards are on the big side and I do not find them easy to shuffle.
Even so, I have been using Tarot Grand Luxe every day for the past couple of months and I just love it.
Hopefully Ciro Marchetti will continue to create Tarot decks for a very long time.
