Tarocco Italian Neoclassico "Collection"

It consists of 78 letters plus brochure with instructions in Italian language.

The Italian Neoclassico Tarocco is based on an original recorded work by Ferdinando Gumppenberg of c.1810, reissued in 1980 as a very limited edition of (1500) by Editions of the Solleone.

The 78 cards are printed on an uncoated material that looks and feels great.

The figures are delicately engraved and fit comfortably within the confined space of a tarot card, each within a beautiful ornamental border.

The letters use arrangements and iconography reminiscent of the engraved Spanish works of the same period, without interspersing swords and canes. The ace of spades bears the valid tax stamp from 1807 to 1816. Gumppenberg was inspired by the work of the Spanish engraver Clemente Roxas of Madrid.

Here and there the designs start from traditional tarot images. For example, the lover's letter depicts a woman between two men, rather than the other way around.

Finely colored images with finely engraved beaded edges on each card, with a drop-down instruction booklet in Italian.

Gumppenberg published several new works by well-known artists or engravers of the day. The designs are clear and well-engraved, in the style of the rebirth of antiquity, and preserving the symbolic intensity of the Tarot, but adding new nuances. Delicate edges and calligraphic inscriptions inspired by neoclassical art complement the drawings and coloring of this beautiful historical deck.

In 1984, as a second edition of (999), under the direction of Vito Arienti. The same original letters were also reissued as: 'Antichi Tarocci Lombardi' in 1995 and by Edition Fabbri, France, in 2003. Images courtesy of Rod Starling.
