Il Tarocco del Mondo Nuovo, Text and Design by Amerigo Folchi
From our blog archive:
Il Tarocco del Mondo Nuovo was published by Italcards, Bologna (Italy) in 1991. The cards are designed by Americo Folchi and show the voyages to Americas by European seafarers and explorers. The cards of the major arcana feature different theme’s in regard to the ‘new findings’ the explorer’s way back then discovered during their adventurous voyages. So be prepared for wild native animals, weird pottery, and images of ancient (sea)maps.
The text on the cards is in Italian only as well as the text on the accompanying booklet leaflet. The cards, that have never been used and are in excellent condition and even the box is as new. The cards are packed together with the instruction booklet. A packaging that Italcards regrettably has patented.
According to the information available this deck has been published in an unnumbered limited edition. Unfortunately, we could not determine the print run. In any case, this deck is rare and not easy to be found.
