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. This deck is a combination of beauty and usefulness; the names (in five languages) and numbers appear in black borders that highlight the brilliance of the gold without detracting from the original design. 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?).

One of the oldest Tarot decks preserved to this day and perhaps the most beautiful of all . . . these cards are universally recognized as one of the most extraordinary examples of miniature art and Renaissance symbolism. The Visconti Mini Tarot, which has been restored and printed with gold to enhance its original splendor, is now available in a new miniature size. Cards are 44mm by 80 mm, smaller than a traditional Tarot deck. Boxed deck includes 78 full-color cards and instruction booklet. 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]

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.
