This tarot deck is a reconstruction of one of the oldest printed tarots. The geographical origin commonly accepted for this tarot is Italy (Venecia or Ferrara), and its date is somewhere between the end of the XVth century and the beginning of the XVIth century.
The original documents are uncut sheets, partially incomplete. They are located in the Metropolitan Museum, the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts, and private collections. These sheets complement one another. Therefore, I was able to recompose all 22 trumps, and the majority of the remaining 56 cards.
The work of restoration consisted of a close redrawing of the original engraved lines. Some of the sheets were stencil-coloured. To respect the source document specificity, the final rendering focus on all its aspects and forms observable. The attention to the finest details during the development process results in a tarot that is extremely close to its original model.
The envelope wrapping your tarot is an original creation featuring a hand-printed linocut inspired by the fascinating and unique style of the original Budapest tarot.
For this first limited edition, each deck is numbered and signed from 1 to 250 on the envelope as well as an additional card.
