22 Arcani I Gatti Buffi
22 Arcani I Gatti Buffi (Funny Cats) is one of the two cat themed decks that were published by Osvaldo Menegazzi of Il Meneghello. This is the larger sized set. Both are B&W, 22 Major Arcana decks (the smaller set is more cream colored), both on high quality, textured card stock. Both limited, numbered editions of 2000 that came out during 1990. This larger size deck is around 3 1/2 x 5 inches. (The smaller set is about 2 x 3 inches). Box style: sturdy slipcovers with ribbons. While these decks are both charming they are distinctively different. The larger version (I Gatti Buffi or Funny Cats) has the same level of high quality line drawings of cats depicted in Major Arcana situations, but these kitties are more playful and mischievous, while with the smaller version deck (22 Arcani I Gatti), the cats seem a bit more sophisticated and majestic.
