Originally commissioned to Bonifacio Bembo by Francesco Sforza, Duke in Milan in A.D. 1450, the Visconti Tarots are considered one of the greatest and most extraordinary examples of Renaissance Art. The meaning and history of the beautiful allegories remained a mystery for years, inspiring countless generations to study the Tarot and medieval symbolism. It is rare howev... more ?er that the worlds of art history and divination, so different from one another, walk hand in hand. In this book the esoterist Tiberio Gonard explores the Divinatory meanings of the most ancient Tarot deck in existence, showing the original structure of this complex discipline. Giordano Berti, one of the most important Tarot historian in the work, introduces the scientific and historical research on symbolism and Tarot history, gathered over years of study on the original documents of the Italian Renaissance

The Tarot is much more than mere pictures on cards, the pictures are physical symbols for spiritual concepts. The images are symbolic representation of archetypal forces and/or beings which have always existed and have been identified and passed on to us by ancient initiates and which provide a focus for us to use in self-initiation, spiritual development, and the perception of hidden wisdom. The tarot deck included in this beautiful set was commissioned around 1451 by the Visconti and Sforza families, and it is one of the oldest tarot decks in existence. The images on the cards have been faithfully recreated, showing members of the Sforza and Visconti families in period garments. The borders of the elegant cards are adorned with gold metallic ink. The accompanying book provides a history of Visconti-Sforza cards, 35 of which are now in the collection of the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City. The symbolism of the different cards is described, along with explanations of different ways to arrange the cards when seeking information about different aspects of life. This beautiful gift box holds the book and card deck side by side, with a purple satin reading cloth folded and placed underneath the book.

An absolutely stunning display of lavish gold foil and exquisite Renaissance art, this deck is pure magic and mystery! The shimmering gold reflects the light, seducing the intuition and delighting the eye. This deck is a treasure, truly a must-have for all Tarot enthusiasts. Originally commissioned in 1450 by the Duke of Milan, and attributed to Bonifacio Bembo, this is a reproduction of the oldest extant Tarot deck. This product includes 78 full-color cards and 9 cards with instructions. No booklet included. Publisher Review: When I was in high school, I was fortunate enough to take a trip through Europe. I desperately wanted to see some of the famous sites. I ended up disappointed with many of them. The Leaning Tower of Pisa was just an old building falling on its side. The Eiffel Tower was an enormous rusty hunk of metal. The Mona Lisa was dark, dingy, and criss-crossed with hairline cracks. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was likewise dark and dismal with muted colors (it's been cleaned since I was there). The truth is that great works of art and architecture age and need to be cared for. Most art does not receive the appropriate care. Perhaps the oldest—and certainly the most complete—example we have of the Tarot is known by a variety of names. Attributed to Bonifacio Bembo, they were commissioned in 1450 for Filippo Maria Visconti, the Duke of Milan, Italy. Because they weren't finished until his successor, Francesco Sforza, was in office, this deck is often called the Visconti-Sforza Tarot or simply the Visconti Tarot. Today [read more]

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.

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?).

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith’s Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist “grid” and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author’s analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.

The earliest known decks of tarot cards created in Italy in the late 15th century were used as a game. The tarotÕs association with fortune telling and gypsies did not come about until the late 1700s. The first decks were hand painted for wealthy families who had the money to commission the decks as well as the time to play with them. After the advent of lithography, the easy replication through printing made tarot decks much more accessible to the everyday man and woman. In todayÕs world, the tarot has numerous uses, most of which have the purpose of encouraging self-knowledge and reflection. The beauty and lyricism of hundreds, and even thousands, of tarot decks illustrated throughout the last 600 years, as well as those currently in circulation and those yet to be designed and published, make them a unique art form. This book celebrates that art form.
