Minchiate was a popular card game in Florence in the 16th century. In this 97-card deck, we find the traditional Tarot trumps and minors along with additional cards. The Major Arcana includes the seven virtues, the four elements, and the twelve signs of the Zodiac. In this carefully and beautifully reproduced deck nothing is added-it's simply the cards in their original lavish color and design; even the backs of the cards are reproduced from the original 1725 deck. Historically important, symbolically fascinating, and decidedly engaging, Minchiate is enjoying its own renaissance.
