Because the gold in the designs is only printed, not gilded, and is really brown with orange streaks. Because the silver is only grey. Because the moment you take it out of hte box the cardstock develops a concave bend to it. Because if you have it on a public reading table, all the clients head straight for it, ignoring all the other more worthy decks.

Because Luigi Scapini has an ego the size of a small planetary system?

ROFL! I bet you will!

Please note: I am going out of town tomorrow, and won't be back until WEDNESDAY, Jan 28 - and I won't have internet access during that time. Don't ask me how I'm going to manage without AT....

It has so many details that you have to sit there and let your eyes adjust before you can actually look at the cards. (Tarot of the Moon Garden is the same way.) I got the cruddy later printing and I swear the pictures are blurry.

O the Scapini! Dated tat...

It must have looked really cutting edge in the 80s. I mean, I love gold and old and pseudo-medieval, and I was in a shop recently and they had two editions. One with a little window in the tuck-box and one without. Also (I observed) the one with the window was inexplicably much more expensive. Anyway, I came here to AT and did a search and found out about the different printings. The box with the window was - in short - an older version so I bought it (to cut a long story short.)

Got home and O itīs tacky. I have a theory (which Ive expounded before) that Scapini must be big mates with Kaplan. It is the only explanation as to why this deck found a publisher. I mean, the quality of the art just isnīt very good. And the pictures are busy. And itīs a system you have to dedicate yourself to (but judging from the post over in "decks" I think youīve already been de-enabled).

My point; even if you can find an older printing, it is still dated tat.

cured but spent MORE! ?


Well....I have been cured & de-enabled on the Scrapini! but only because people on the thread I posted suggested 3 other decks, namely...The Estensi, Brian Williams Renaissance & Golden Botticelli...now, strangely... for some reason my mouse wouldn't seem to click on this thread so.... I bought all 3...AND weirdly the Jolanda.....

Now.....onto another deck..... several times over the past month I have ALMOST ordered the MRP Fairytale Tarot kit as I just adore my other MRP decks...anything you can say as to why I shouldnt go for it?

LOL ...

Why wouldnīt you want to buy the MRP Fairytale Tarot? Because it is the only MRP deck which isnt hard to find? Because Ive heard itīs quite complicated? Another system (again!) Because itīs the most insignificant of all the MRP decks?

I mean, really, here we are de-enabling you from a deck, while you busy yourself buying three - nay, four - others...
