The New Palladini Tarot - Temperance

The New Palladini Tarot is a blend of "medieval, illumination, Egyptian, and modern art" (from the booklet). Some of the cards follow the Rider Waite pattern, some do not. Perhaps because of the Egyptian influences, the cards have a sort of Art Deco feel. It aims to be egalitarian, featuring people of a variety of colors. My biggest complaint about this deck is that the faces do not seem very proportional to me; all of the characters seem gaunt or lengthened, as if the aspect ratio had been messed with.

The booklet included with The New Palladini Tarot is black & white, and in English only. It includes an introduction by David Palladini, brief descriptions and meanings for each card, and a short description of the Celtic Cross spread.
