    Torino. Home of Lo Scarabeo and a good town to boot. Best Negroni of my life there.

    Blame the wonderful Balthazar and the addictiveness of Amazon Prime in equal measure. There’s a Lovecraftian Tarot deck that’s actually good and I don’t own it?! (Already have and like this one.) Plus it’s a Lo Scarabeo production whose aesthetic I adore? Well, this won’t do! So I promptly bought and calibrated the Dark...

    July, huh? Holy crap. Who let that happen so fast? No matter, I’ve quite enjoyed these last three month beginnings because I have been experimenting with a little forecasting.

    My first ever Tarot deck -and one that I still use fairly often- was the Arthurian Tarot. The deck came to mind as I sat in the Place Des Vosges on the weekend with my latest divinatory toy, the Sibilla Oracle. (Specifically the Scarabeo ones as per Jason’s description.
