Interview with Riccardo, part 3

Here is the next question in the ongoing interview with Riccardo Minetti from Lo Scarabeo. If you missed the other two, click here and here.

Question: What is your favorite deck that you’ve worked on directly?

Riccardo: A strange question.

The one I use most often is the Etruscan Tarot. Possibly because it is the one 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 currently drawn, and it takes the intuition I worked with in the Manga to a further level. So maybe that deck is the one that most describe my contribution to Tarot.

But favorite? The Fey Tarot.

It is less mine than any of the others, as the Fey is first and foremost 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 ever 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 whole 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?

For me, Tarot of the Magical Forest contributed much to tarot and my personal tarot world. Its so great for people who are nervous about reading or being read. The images warm any heart.

I think, the Deviant Moon. Opens a new dimension and shows witty, chatty character
