The Devil's Picture Books! Can you guess what it's about?
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 seventh. 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.

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.
Here’s another deck published by Italcards, Bologna (Italy). These cards were published in 1988.
The cards are designed by Americo Folchi and show quite realistic images inspired by Greek mythological themes. Anyone who read the Iliad or who has any (basic) knowledge of Greek mythology will recognize the images offered as well as their importance for Human Kind.
