This is a limited edition, Major Arcana only deck that features pipe smokers. The cards are small - 3 1/2" X 1 15/16". The scenes feature a central figure smoking a pipe. The colors are simple. The card number is in the top of the scene and the card name is in the bottom border in Italian. Each deck is signed and numbered by the artist. The art is excellent, like that of all Menegazzi decks. The U.S.A. edition is limited to 1000 copies.

The deck comes with a foldout sheet that has a brief history of the tarot, information on how to do a reading, a sample reading, and the meanings of the cards. Even the wrapping keeps the theme of smoking. The deck comes wrapped in a cardboard sleeve that is held shut by a ring like those found on cigars.

Published in 1981, you might be able to find this deck used.
