These fantastic images, inspired by the Flemish painter Hieronymus Bosch, describe a world which is not unreal even though it might seem so. They actually express the psyche's daily activity through the use of human, animal, and plant allegories.
The Bosch Tarot allows a door to the unconscious to be opened and helps us understand ourselves better.
All the cards are titled in Italian, English, French, German, and Spanish.
78 cards, 6.6 cm x 12 cm, with instructions
The companion booklets for most Lo Scarabeo decks are in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

Perfectly captures the phantasmagorical quality of Bosch. The major arcana are based on the Visconti-Sforza images rather than Marseille, with Moon and Sun held aloft by human figures, and World as a disc with buildings on it. The minors show the correct number of pips as part of scenes with figures in them, but I regard these scenes as decorative only, placing this deck closer to the Traditional family of tarots. A plausible example of what a deck painted by Hieronymus Bosch might have looked like.
