Question: What is your favorite deck that youâ€™ve worked on directly?
Riccardo: A strange question.
The one I use most often is the Etruscan Tarot. Possibly because it is the oneÂ asking less commitment on my part.
The one I gave more of myself to was the Gothic Tarot of the Vampires.
The one I want to continue with is the Manga Tarot. A new deck is been currentlyÂ drawn, and it takes the intuition I worked with in the Manga to a furtherÂ level. So maybe that deck is the one that most describe my contribution toÂ Tarot.
But favorite? The Fey Tarot.
It is less mine than any of the others, as the Fey is first and foremostÂ Mara’s (Mara Aghem is the name of the artist I worked with). And she made itspecial, alive, powerful, hopeful, happy… like no other deck I have everÂ seen. But mostly I felt that deck was actually important to some people.
The other decks I can live without.
Without the Fey Tarot, however, the wholeÂ Tarot world would be poorer, and narrower.
I think Riccardo raises an interesting question. What deck do you think the tarot world would be poorer without?
