Tarot of the Renaissance
78 cards + a title card and advertising card + a small fold-out guide in a standard cardboard tuck box.
The cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide. The card stock is very flexible, with a smooth, matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled without damage.
The card backs are fully reversible.
Justice is VIII and Strength is XI. The Fool is numbered 0.
Suits are Pentacles, Chalices, Swords, and Wands. The court cards are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.
The minor arcana are scenic, but do not align with any specific system. In some cases, the suit symbols are integrated into the scene, but in other cases the suit symbols are floating above or over the scene.
The cards are titled in 5 languages. As with other Lo Scarabeo decks of this period, the fold-out guide is only in English.
On a personal note, I have a sentimental fondness for this deck as it was among the first 40 or so I ever purchased. I bought it during a Llewellyn sale, when many Lo Scarabeo titles were on sale for $5 each.
