CLASSICAL TAROTS After the Tarot was reintroduced to Italy from France in the 18th century, Italian artists and printers began creating and publishing their own decks, offering decidedly Italian alternatives to the popular French Marseilles decks. The most magnificent of these new Italian decks was created in Milan in 1835 by the influential engraver Carlo DellaRocca. 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 -- Trump 18, The Moon, shows the cloud-shrouded moon peering at the confused, baying dogs and a lobster which is, believe it or not, on a plate! The pips, in the style of the Marseilles decks, have the requisite number of suit symbols arranged on each card, with delicate embellishments to increase the visual impact of the cards. This deck is authentically reproduced from the original, with the modern addition of a white borde
r with a key word in English, Italian, French, and German for each card.
