Ancient Italian Tarot
The first documentation of the existence of Tarot cards has been traced back to the fifteenth century, in Italy. This wonderful deck draws upon these historical roots, filing the 78 cards of the Traditional Arcana with beautiful artwork stemming from the background of Italy, with work that resembles everything from Roman design to the extravagance of the Renaissance.
Explore the faces of Kings and Emperors as you find deeper meaning in your readings letting the imagery of these ages spill forth into your understanding of all things.
This brilliant deck also features an instructional pamphlet that explores the history of Tarot as well as methods and theory that will help you understand each card and how to use the deck to perform a reading.
This deck marks the coming of age of Tarot in Italy. The classic design of the Marseilles decks, reinvented by an anonymous artist, exemplifies 19th-century Italian art: detailed, symbolic, and richly colored in vibrant greens, muted reds, and vivid golds. The whole, decadently costumed array of Tarot archetypes are presented here, along with delicately ornamented Marseilles style pips.
