"The Oracle of the Sibyl deck is published jointly by Ace/Altenburger und Stralsunder Spielkarten, Leinfelden, West Germany and Bi-Ass, Milan, Italy.
The card designs of the Oracle of the Sibyl deck were prepared by Giorgio Tavaglione, an Italian artist whose work includes the Enoil Gavat Tarot deck published in 1978 by Ace/Altenburger und Stralsunder Spielkarten and the Tavaglione Golden Stairs Tarot deck, published in 1980 by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.
The earliest Sibyls are thought to date from the time of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations where their prophecies were highly respected and much in demand. Most of the Sibyls were considered to possess divine inspiration and many were miraculously long-lived. After the Middle Ages, gypsies are thought to have popularized cartomancy throughout Europe."
