Lo Scarabeo's Decameron Tarot (I Tarocchi Del Decamerone) is a sexually explicit deck inspired by Giovanni Boccaccio's "Decameron", a 14th-century allegorical work best known for its bawdy tales of love, appearing in all its possibilities from the erotic to the tragic. However, the deck is not derived directly from the text in any discernible sense. For the most part, the stunning artwork depicts a variety of sexual situations in the medieval/comical/carnal milieu of Boccaccio's characters. The cards were illustrated by Italian illustrator Giacinto Gaudenzi. Gaudenzi also illustrated several other Lo Scarabeo decks, including the Celtic Tarot (Tarocchi Celtici), Enchanted Tarot (Tarots of the Golden Dawn/I Tarocchi del’Alba), Tarot of a Thousand and One Nights (Tarocchi delle Mille e una Notte) and the Tarot of Durer (Tarocchi Durer). The cards feature pencil drawings with watercolor.
