Tarots of the Renaissance

by Giorgio Trevisan

Tarots of the Renaissance Deck
Price: $20.00
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.37 x 4.55 inches; or 60 x 115 millimeters.

Back of card: Sepia toned (eg, brown) pen & ink drawing of a bust of a bearded man with big floppy hat. Sort of like a Renaissance mariner. Inverted on the bottom half of the card, so you can invert these.

Booklet included: No. There are nine extra cards (17 sides) with instructions (very brief) in Italian, German, English, French & Spanish.

Publisher: Lo Scarabeo. Printed in Italy.

Comments: This deck was done in watercolors, giving it a unique appearance. The deck seems to us more urbane than Renaissance. This deck lacks the Renaissance exuberance & the watercolors lack the dramatic light/dark effect of painting from the period. The imagery bears only slight resemblance to the Rider deck, and only occasional resemblance to early Italian tarot. It is a very pleasing deck, very Italian in feeling.
