We started e-mailing out a newsletter, which eventually was named the Tarocks Tribune. These newsletters were extensive from the beginning, so we decided to make them more accessibly by sharing them here. This is our sixth. To read them all, click on the Tribune category near the top of our blog page.
This month we offer you an incredible newsletter filled with mystery!
Here is what this letter covers:
If, while reading this newsletter, you think of someone in your life who loves cards as much as we do, feel free to forward them this e-mail.
This edition of beautiful cards was published in 1984 by Arienti Solleone Carte, 20035 Lissone (MI), Via S. M. del Carso,1.
According to the accompanying description (in Italian) the design is based upon a group of paintings that were purchased by Vito Arienti in an antiquarian bookstore in Venice. The artwork depicts scenes of life and theater in Milan during the second half of the 19th century. The images are good examples of the romantic period of that time, showing all the drama that goes with it. An inspiring set of cards that makes you yearn for Carnival in Venice.
I Tarocchi Lanzichenecchi was published in 1998 by Lo Scarabeo as part of the Azzuro series in Torino in 1998. It is a limited and hand numbered edition of 390 copies. The edition described is number 88 of 390. The title card shows the signature of Giorgio Trevisan. The artist's signature is printed and not signed by hand.
