Gatti Originali Tarot

[Il Carro] [Il Mondo] The Gatti Originali deck is a collection of the 22 major arcana cards featuring cats in whimsical poses (gatti is Italian for cat). The deck is published by Il Meneghello in Milan, Italy in a numbered limited edition of 2000. The cards come in an elegant, rigid cardboard three-sided sleeve. They slip in one side which can then be tied by a ribbon. The cards are printed on stiff cream-colored paper stock. The drawings are black and white, and titles are in Italian. The artist is Osvaldo Menegazzi who also created a similar deck called the Gatti Buffi and a deck about dogs called the I Cani.
