After five years of kicking myself (metaphorically speaking, of course) for not picking up a copy of the Enrico Prometti Arcani Maggiori back when it was readily available from Alida, I finally managed to score a copy, which arrived a few days ago. Normally I wouldn't post about a deck that is already well-covered at TG, but I'm so delighted by it, I couldn't resist.

Since TG makes a point of scanning cards close to their actual size, it wasn't until I actually had the cards in my hand that I realized just how wonderfully detailed the art is. (The cards are relatively small (the actual image area is about 2 1/8" x 4"), and at that size, the TG scans just don't have the resolution to really show the detail.)

Anyway, here are a few of the cards scanned at much larger than actual size to give some idea of what they're about (my apologies to anyone on dial-up for the file size):

I realize this isn't an art style that will appeal to everyone, but if you're one to whom it does, it's definitely a deck worth looking out for.
