Tarot Genovese review by Le Fanu

Published by Fournier, this is a reproduction of an 1887 deck which may look vaguely familiar to fans of historic decks since the artwork is not dissimilar to the so-called Soprafino decks currently available. However, what sets this deck apart from the others is that it has images which are double-ended. The effect of this is rather unnerving as it means that on first impression, the familiar scenes are randomly sliced in half and then duplicated in mirror image. It means that the Hanged Man, for example, depicts two pairs of legs, two pairs of tree trunks and not much else. The Tower has a slightly surreal, suspended double-ended tower, battlements at either end, creating a very odd effect, not to mention considerable impact. The Moon has two disembodied dog heads afloat in the middle... read more reviews.
