Dating back to fifteenth-century Florence, the Minchiate is a fascinating form of tarot. Composed of 97 cards instead of the usual 78, this historic deck features an expanded set of major arcana. In addition to the traditional tarot trumps, you'll find the Grand Duke, the Eastern Emperor, and cards representing the four elements (fire, water, air, earth), the twelve astrological signs, and four more virtues―prudence, faith, hope, and charity. This beautiful eighteenthcentury edition is designed to delight the most exacting collector. Each card―etched and painted by hand―is a true artistic jewel, rich in symbols and refined allegory.
Includes 97 full-color cards and companion guide.
