The Classic Tarot
Authors Ferdinando Gumppenberg, Carlo della Rocca
Artist Carlo della Rocca
The work of Carlo Della Rocca, one of the most important engravers of the nineteenth century, was reproduced, preserving the charm and naturalness of that extremely refined craft. This deck is one of the best examples of Tarot art, its origins deeply rooted in Italian culture and history. Each Arcana contains its own divinatory meanings.
Amazingly detailed and gracefully beautiful, Alasia's tempera-on-papyrus paintings meld the stunning style of ancient Egyptian art with the mysteries of the Tarot. To shape the interpretations, Alasia relied on the conceptions of Jean-Baptiste Pitois. The Classical Tarots cards are a feast for the eyes, employing delicate, detailed line work and deep, rich colors. Lush and vibrant, these cards illustrate the drama, the complexity, and even the humor and weirdness of life.
This deck is authentically reproduced from the original, with the modern addition of a white border with a key word in English, Italian, French, and German for each card.
