Cary-Yale Visconti Tarot

The Cary-Yale Visconti Tarot is a faithful reproduction of an original Italian fifteenth century tarot deck. The deck has the 67 cards that are still in existence in Yale University's Cary Collection of Playing Cards, plus recreations for 19 missing cards. This Visconti deck is also unusual because it has male and female Knights and Pages in the court cards.





Classic Tarot

The Classic Tarot is a reproduction of a Milanese deck, dated 1835. The art is pen-and-ink and somewhat unusually coloured in bright oranges, lime greens and pinks but is the overall effect is harmonious.

Mantegna Tarot

This wonderful deck is a tarot ancestor, with only fifty cards. The Mantegna Tarot artwork, originally created in 1460, has been recoloured and highlighted with silver. What appears as mottled dark grey in the digital scans is actually bright silver foil.





Minchiate Tarot

The Minchiate Tarot is a reprint of the historical Ancient Minchiate Etruria Tarot. The deck is a photo reproduction of a Florentine Minchiate deck from 1725, which has 56 minors and 41 major arcana, with cards for the signs, planets and virtues.





Sola-Busca Tarot

Soprafino Tarot

The Soprafino Tarot faithfully reproduces the images from the Tarocco Soprafino of F. Gumppenberg in Milan, a deck dating from around 1835. This reproduction by il Meneghello is a numbered edition, limited to 2000. The colours are muted, and faux stains have been printed on the unvarnished cards.





Spanish Tarot

The Spanish Tarot is a bilingual Tarot deck titled in Spanish and English. The 78 cards are a reproduction of an eighteenth century Liguria-Piedmontese woodcut deck.





Tarocco Piemontese

Camoin and Jodorowski, French Tarot scholars, have restored crisp detail and outlines in their variation of the Tarot of Marseilles woodcut images.





Tarot de Marseille (Hadar)

Le Veritable Tarot de Marseille ('The True Tarot of Marseilles') is a lovely Marseilles variation with subdued colouration, restored and reconstructed by French Tarotist, Kris Hadar. Close attention has been paid to the finer details of the cards. Published by Mortagne.





Tarot de Marseille (Héron)

This Tarot de Marseille, from French publishers Héron, is a modern duplication of Conver's 1760 Marseilles images which now reside in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.





Tarot de Marseille de Francois Chosson 1736

Tarots Marseille de Jean Noblet

Les Tarots Marseille de Jean Noblet is another reproduction of Marseilles-style cards dating back to 1650. The 22 trump cards have been 'refreshed' by Jean-Claude Flornoy, who also restored the Jean Dodal Tarot.





Visconti Tarot

A restoration of one of the oldest tarots, the Visconti-Sforza cards. The symbolism is the same in this version, but the Visconti Tarot cards have clearer colours and there are metallic gold leaf highlights and backgrounds. (The gold doesn't show up well in scans, unfortunately.)





Visconti-Sforza Tarot

A reproduction of 74 tarot cards that were painted in the fifteenth century, the scenes in the Visconti-Sforza Tarot are authentically medieval. The cards are not titled (there is no text on the cards at all), and four cards have been recreated to make the full 78-card deck.
