Marco Benedetti Tarot Deck




This is the original version of my deck with name and number boxes.

The new 2021 version without names and numbers is available at:

Marco Benedetti Tarot - Visconti Homage Edition

I painted this Tarot deck twentyfive years ago, inspired mainly by the Tarot of Visconti and, to a lesser extent, by the Tarot of Marseille. The original deck was painted in tempera with backgrounds in gold leaf on hard paper 82 x 170 mm. and it is still the deck I use today.

Because of the backgrounds in gold leaf, the deck was almost impossible to print so, at the requests on the net, I have prepared a new "printer friendly" version with white backgrounds and some minor changes.

The original Visconti deck has no Devil and Tower cards; in addition, 6 trumps, including Star, Moon, Sun and World, were painted by a second artist about 20 years later; these 4 cards use symbols quite different from the established standard. So in the previous version I used the Tarot de Marseille symbols for these 4 cards, as well as for Devil and Tower. In 2019 I made a new version more faithful to Visconti's original deck, with new images for the 4 cards mentioned above, while Devil and Tower are inspired by the oldest existing Italian cards.

Both versions are now included, so you get a full deck of 78 cards in TdM style plus the 6 alternate cards of the Visconti Homage version.

Why buy this?

I rarely buy decks just for their aesthetic appeal. The voice in my head always says, “It’s nice but can you read with it?” The answer here is a resounding “yes.”

  • It is NOT another clone of the RWS.
  • Pip cards are actually pip cards: NO scenes.
  • Extremely good for meditation and reading with TdM method.
