Much sought after in the US because of its beauty, the Favole Tarot is a unique Marseilles-style deck. Adding to its gothic aesthetic are the creative suits: butterflies, masks, flowers, and crosses. Vampires, clowns, Witches, and ghosts mingle among the ruins with humans, all sharing and experiencing the exquisite romance of life, love, and death.

Because it is a Spanish deck, it follows the European, Marseilles-style tradition. These decks have minor cards that are not illustrated, but are instead true pips. They have only the suit designators on them. Not many American readers use Marseilles-style decks, although that is changing.
