INTRODUCTION

At around 1865, in Turin, the publisher Claudio Perrin printed a deck of great artistic and esoterical value, which, however, has remained forgotten until recently.
At first glance, the Triumphs and the Court cards show a stylistic and chromatic research that places this deck at the top of the Tarot production in the nineteenth century.

CONTENTS

Looking at the 78 cards, printed with chromolithographic technique, one can see their extraordinary quality.

As some Triumphs clearly show affinities to the so-called “Tarot Soprafino”, it is interesting to note that Perrin’s drew its inspiration from this deck, created in Milan at around 1830 by the engraver Charles Dellarocca for the manufacturer Ferdinand Gumppenberg.

However, the artist who designed the Perrin Tarot maintained a very original footprint in all images, both in the costumes of the characters and environments.

The drawings may have been made by one of the many illustrators used by Perrin’s Publishing House, which was specialized in publication of historical illustrated books.

One might ask why the extreme rarity of this deck. The answer may be that Claudio Perrin, despite being an excellent lithographer, was not a traditional Tarot producer and then not had its own distribution network.

In fact, Perrin was primarily a publisher of illustrated books. However it is interesting to note that many of his books can be linked to the Turin Freemasonry, as demonstrated by Giordano Berti in the historical research reported in the booklet that accompanies the deck.
