Contents

The 78 drawings were made on paper, with a mix of pencil, ink and gouache applied by brush with precise uniformity.

The iconography reworks the classic “Tarot of Marseille” but introduces many innovations symbolic and graphic derived from the most important treatises on the subject, studied by the Artist with the collaboration of Giordano Berti.

The black background brings out forcefully every detail and enhances color brilliance.
