An absolutely stunning display of lavish gold foil and exquisite Renaissance art captured on 78 bits of card stock-pure magic and mystery! The shimmering gold plays with and reflects the light, seducing the intuition and delighting the eye.
This deck is a treasure, truly a must-have for all Tarot students, enthusiasts, and collectors. Originally commissioned in 1450 by the Duke of Milan, and attributed to Bonifacio Bembo, this is a reproduction of the oldest extant Tarot deck, carefully reconstructed by Atanas Alexandrov. This deck is a combination of beauty and usefulness; the names (in five languages) and numbers appear in black borders that highlight the brilliance of the gold without detracting from the original design. Reminiscent of illuminated manuscripts and books of hours, these cards entice the curious with timeless archetypal images and the lure of echoes of historical figures (is that fair and vivacious noblewoman in the Queen of Swords Bianca Maria Visconti?).
