Description
 
Another splendid edition from Giordano Berti and Rinascimento Italian Art of a rare 19th century Tarot from Turin. From art created by Claudio Foudraz in 1845, director Giordano Berti has added watercolor done in the style of hand-coloring typical of 19th century Italian decks as well as correcting some mistakes in the original Foudraz art such as duplicate numbers on some Trumps. The result is a beautiful Tarot of Chinese themed art which, unlike most "Chinoiserie" of the time, follows the Marseille iconography.
Includes 18 page booklet in English with a discussion of Tarot and Oriental themes and biographical information about the creator, Claudio Foudraz, and a signed and numbered title card.
Edition limited to 700 copies. Number on the deck that will be shipped will vary from the photo since the deck for sale has not been opened. Another deck was used for photos and scans.

English: 2 5/8" x 4 5/8" x .016"
