Today’s Out-of-Print Spotlight: The Tarot of the Master Special Edition

Today we present The Tarot of the Master Special Edition – #19 of a limited edition of 250, by Giovanni Vacchetta.

Originally published at the end of the nineteenth century in black and white, Michela Guadenzi has skillfully colored Giovanni Vacchetta’s inspiring Major Arcana and elegant pip cards. A teacher of art at the Polytechnic of Turin and a patron of the arts, Vacchetta incorporated some Masonic symbolism into this masterful deck. The cards were designed as if he were carving them from marble. The images have a sense of material solidity, yet are characterized by graceful lines. An important historic reproduction modified for modern audiences by the addition of delicate color, this deck will be of interest to collectors and readers alike. Vacchetta was not only a skilled artist but also a scholar and learned iconographist.

This is set #19 of a limited edition of 250, with the title card autographed by the author.

 

Today’s Out-of-Print Spotlight: The Ancient Tarots of Bologna

 

The Ancient Tarots of Bologna is an exquisite reproduction of one of the earliest Italian decks. The worn, aged look of the cards, coupled with the soft, rich hues of green, blue, brown, and gold work together in a presentation that is ancient and mysterious-like a soft whisper from the past beckoning the reader to listen quietly to the wisdom of the cards. We have a copy, just for you!
