Giovanni Vacchetta Tarot

Historic Tarot Deck
This deck of 78 cards, created by Giovanni Vacchetta, was originally published in Turin, Italy in 1893. In this version, card titles are in English along the top of each card. Suits are wands, coins, cups and swords. Minors are not entirely scenic but not strictly "pips." Their illustrations often feature significant illustrative details that can aid interpretation in readings.

The original cards were black & white; this version is sepia-toned. These larger-sized (2.75" x 4.75") monochromatic cards lend themselves to hand-coloring. The backs are decorated with a reversible scattering of Roman coins. The cards are enclosed in a unique tuck-box.
