This deck is a modern reprint of a Milanese deck dated from around 1835. Originally etched by Carlo Della Rocca by the commission of German printer Ferdinand Gumppenberg.
The cards are etched in great period detail, at points shifting into the grotesque and largely coloured in surreal lime green, deep orange, sky blue and bright pink colouring. These cards balance historical authenticity with an implacable strangeness, culminating in a somewhat mesmerising set.
Faithfully reprinted with the addition of a new white border containing translations of the original Italian in Spanish, French, German, and English.
78 Cards (Standard 2.75 x 4.75 Inch size) including fully illustrated minor and major arcana. Comes with a small booklet with definitions for the major cards and comes in a simple card tuck box.
