TAROT CARDS - TAROT OF THE MASTER
Originally published at the end of the nineteenth century in black and white, Michela Guadenzi has skilfully coloured Giovanni Vacchetta's inspiring Major Arcana and elegant pip cards. A teacher of art at the Polytechnic of Turin and a patron of the arts, Vacchetta incorporated some Masonic symbolism into this masterful deck. The cards were designed as if he were carving them from marble. The images have a sense of material solidity, yet are characterised by graceful lines. An important historic reproduction modified for modern audiences by the addition of delicate colour, this deck will be of interest to collectors and readers alike. Vacchetta was not only a skilled artist but also a scholar and learned iconographist (hence the name: Tarot of the Master).
