Description
 
This a Limited Edition, full-size (7") replica edition of the Visconti Sforza Tarot originally created in the 15th century as a deck and book set.

This is a new edition with superior print quality that was just published at the end of 2018. The new edition includes a 92 page, full-color book on the history of the deck and the Visconti and Sforza families.

The cards were produced on a substantial card stock similar to the previous edition, but the colors have been re-mastered and are now more vibrant and closer to the original 15th century paintings in color tone. Meneghello has again gone the extra step of using an advanced color process. Instead of building the gold background and silver foreground elements from the conventional 4-color process, they used specially mixed inks. While it cannot approach the gold leaf applique of the original cards it still makes for a beautiful rendition that has more of the feel of the original paintings.

For both of the Meneghello editions, the art for the four missing cards (Devil, Tower, Knight of Coins, and Three of Swords) was created by Giovanni Scarsato, who has paid attention to the cosmological framework of the symbols in a way that some of the other replacement artists working for other publishers have not. Semi-gloss finish.

A companion book of 92 pages with color illustrations by Cristina Dorsini is included in the set.
