Fantastic Menagerie Tarot review by Kate Hill
From the prolific and talented duo of Karen Mahony and Alex Ukolov at baba studio, creators of the Tarot of Prague, the Baroque Bohemian Catsí Tarot, and the Fairytale Tarot, comes the new Fantastic Menagerie Tarot.
While at first glance it may seem to be superficially similar to the Tarot of the Animal Lords from Lo Scarabeo, this deck is a different kettle of fish (so to speak). Based on the illustrations of the nineteenth-century French-born journalist, political caricaturist and artist JJ Grandville, these cards has been created in his style, and are witty, charming, and beautifully adapted to Tarot.
