The Tarocchino Milanese a Doppia Figura is a 78-card reproduction of an Italian deck from 1880, used for the card game Tarocchino. The cards are unusual as each tarot image is halved and mirrored on the same card. Published in a limited edition of 2000 by il Meneghello.
The Tarocco Balocco: Le Carte di Giacomo is literally a Tarot of Toys, and features old-fashioned playthings - porcelain dolls, tin sand-pit buckets, wind-up toys and more, associated with the major arcana archetypes.
Il Tarocco Bizzarro interprets the Piedmontese style of Tarot with an ironic twist to reduce the seriousness of Tarot. The art is the creation of Italian artist Franco Bruna, who was known for his caricatures of local politicians and celebrities. The majors are fully illustrated, but the suit cards are less so.
The Tarocco degli Animali is one of Menegazzi's many creations, this one devoted entirely to animals. The major arcana and court cards each feature a different animal, from cat the giraffe, while the pip cards all depict a motif of the same animal for each suit.
The Tarocco della Musica has 78 cards devoted to music, with images from classical music, opera and ballet. The suits are similarly themed - they are illustrated by violins, French horns, ivory horns, and mandolins - and the aces feature famous composers.
The Tarocco delle Vetrate is a stunning, gloriously coloured Tarot from Luigi Scapini, artist of the Medieval Scapini Tarot and Shakespeare Tarot. The minors are generally pip-style cards, but some are very scenic. Though the cards have Italian titles, the companion booklet has a section in English.
The Tarocco di Colombo links Tarot with the voyage of Christopher Columbus and his 'discovery' of the Americas. The 78 cards are attractively and colourfully illustrated, both majors and minors, though the minors do not hold to any standard imagery.
The Tarocco di Luce is a majors-only, self-published Italian Tarot deck, with a title that translates as the 'Tarot of Light'. The cards have attractive, somewhat abstract art, with faceless people, and the dominant figures drawn in a kind of dark knot-work, on a light coloured-pencil background.
The Tarocco di Sissi is one of the fabulous decks from artist Amerigo Folchi. The di Sissi celebrates the life of the Austrian Empress Elisabeth, otherwise known as Sissi. This 78-card deck was published in a limited edition of 3000 decks.
The Tarocco Erotico dei Giardini di Priapo, the 'Erotic Garden of Priapo' deck is very sexually explicit. (For most people, probably far too much so.) Folchi also created some wonderful decks like the Tarocco Storico della Citta di Ferrara, but this one is not his best.
