MITELLI TAROT - REPRODUCTION OF 62 ENGRAVED CARDS FROM CIRCA 1660.

Released by Lo Scarabeo as part of their Anima Antiqua (Ancient Soul) series, this is a complete Tarocchino ("Little Tarot") deck of 62 cards created sometime around 1660 by the 17th Century master engraver, Giuseppe Maria Mitelli (1634–1718). This reproduction was published in a Limited Edition of 2,999 copies.

This is a full-color version based on a painted copy of the Mitelli engravings. The common practice with engraved decks before color printing; one would purchase the engraved cards, sometimes in a book form, and then hire an artist to color it with paint. The Tarocchino deck differs from the standard 78 card Tarot in some variation of the traditional symbols and by fewer number cards. The pips are limited to Ace, VI, VII, VIII, IX and X.

A small multi-language booklet with 5 pages of notes in 7 languages is included. (English, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese.)

Packaged in a handsome 2-part telescoping box. These are new, sealed packages so it is not possible to identify which number the deck is without opening it. Photos and scans are from an identical open display deck, but you will receive a factory-sealed copy.

Card Dimensions:

2 1/8" x 4 5/8" x .016"
55mm x 115mm x .40mm

This is the second in the Anima Antiqua series from Lo Scarabeo which was inaugurated in August of 2016 with the publication of the Sola Busca Ferrara XV Century. (Now out of print.)
