Born for knowledge, spirituality and prophecy, these engravings today are considered and studied only as works of art. To try to recover its meaning, it is necessary to investigate the mentality of its creators, trying to immerse themselves in it and participate in their illusions and beliefs. Analyzed from the outside, these beautiful engravings will inevitably remain mute, parched by the passing of the years.

The image You posted and the deck available on Amazon look different.

I lost a couple treasured tarot decks in a house fire.

I have been trying to find replacements.

The deck I want has been out of print for at least 50 years.

I would like to see the Mantegna deck in its original form.

Lo Scarebeo makes lovely decks, but I can’t find one that I can connect with.

I have two different versions of this elegant Mantegna Tarot:

1) (with its box) :44:
2) (with yours) :76:

As you can see, the prints are really beautiful.

Interesting. I collect decks. I am not sure if I could read with this deck, but it is beautiful. A good one for meditation. I would like to see a physical one.
