Overview

Since the Tarot is really a product of the Italian Renaissance, it is only appropriate that a Tarot deck be based on the genius of the quintessential Renaissance man: Leonardo da Vinci.

Created by Iassen Ghiuselev and Atanas A. Atanassov, the art for this deck—sophisticated in line, color, composition, and symbolism—is true to the style of the master himself. The accompanying book by popular Tarot author Mark McElroy reveals which pieces of Da Vinci's art each card is based upon, as well as a short history of Da Vinci's life and how he may have encountered Tarot. Also included are specific divinatory meanings written especially for these unique cards.

Prepare to be intrigued, challenged, and delighted as you explore the depth and beauty of this deck and kit.
