  • Sola Busca Tarot 1491 - Deluxe Edition

    The only Tarot deck of the 15th century that has come to our day complete with all 78 cards.The first alchemical deck in the history.The deck that, four centuries later, inspired the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot. All cards are full illustrated, for the first time in history, with dynamic characters.The 22 Triumphs depicting heroes of Greek and Roman history and, in two cases, of biblical story: Nenbroto (Nimrod) and Nabuchodenasor (Nebuchadnezzar).The Court Cards and Numerals show scenes of daily life, images of fantasy and alchemical allegories. The symbols are slightly different from the traditional ones: Disks instead of Coins, Clubs instead of Wands; Amphorae instead of Cups. Swords remain Swords. The Sola-Busca Tarot remained for nearly 420 years in a private collection, until in 2008 the Italian State bought the deck and assigned him on deposit at the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, where in 2012 was made a stunning exhibition. In 1908 the English esotericist Arthur Edward Waite was inspired by Sola-Busca Tarot to create the Rider-Waite Tarot, painted by Pamela Colman Smith.In 1998 the German printer Wolfgang Mayer realized a wonderful version, faithful to the original colors and sizes.Mayer printed only 700 copies, adding to the deck for a warranty card with the serial number and the signature handwritten. Until August 2016 the few remaining decks of the Mayer edition was offered for sale by Giordano Berti in a beautiful book-shaped box, designed by art designer Letizia Rivetti. The same decks WAS available in a Golden box (made with strong golden paper). All the decks, both in Deluxe and in Golden box, have the original warranty certificate handsigned by Mayer in 1998. In 2016, Rinascimento has realized a faithful reprint of the Mayer’s deck. Learn More

  • The English Magic Tarot: Book and Cards Boxed Set

    · A brand new tarot deck and first set in the heyday of English Magic · Dynamic, graphic-novel style design · Each card has a secret code · This complete tarot set includes a 160 page book and 78 cards. This captivating new tarot deck draws us into the vibrant but often hidden world of English magic, evoking a golden age of mysticism when the likes of John Dee was Queen Elizabeth's Court Astrologer, antiquarian John Aubrey began to rediscover ancient sacred sites, and even the great physicist Isaac Newton study alchemy. During this time of upheaval archetypal forces were very much at play. The monarchs and mountebanks, visionaries and fools, knights and vagabonds that shaped the world are all there in the tarot too, making this a perfect setting for the cards. Brought to you by renowned artist Rex Van Ryn, colorist Steve Dooley, and writer Andy Letcher, this deck has a dynamic, graphic style. The cards contain a depth and movement more associated with graphic novels than the tarot, and accordingly this new pack offers a captivating way to take charge of the stories we tell about our own lives. Early Modern English magic was built on foundations laid down by the ancient stone-circle builders, the Druids, the Romano-British and the Anglo-Saxons, and readers will see traces of these throughout the cards. There are unique twists to some of the traditional images, with riddles, references and lore buried within them that will draw users ever deeper into the mystery and meaning of the cards. The first deck of its kind to draw explicitly on the English magical tradition, The English Magic Tarot opens up a rich new pathway into the cards that will delight novice and experienced tarot users alike. CONTENTS INTRODUCTION From the Reformation to the Restoration A brief overview of this colourful period of English history. PART ONE: WHAT IS ENGLISH MAGIC? An introduction An introduction to English magic. The foundations laid down by pre-Christian peoples. Hermes Trismegistus and Renaissance magic. Alchemy and Sir Isaac Newton. High and low magic. The Hall of Magicians. PART TWO: THE ENDLESS STORY Working with the cards In keeping with the graphic style of the deck, users are encouraged to think less that the cards have a set of fixed meanings to be learned by rote, and more that they provide a dynamic tool with which to tell stories. By treating each card as the frame of a graphic novel, readers can learn to let the cards 'speak'. They can find their own stories in the cards and so 're-story' their lives. Exercises and suggested spreads are provided to guide readers through this unique approach one that aims to let people take their place in the endless story of the tarot. PART THREE: SIGNPOSTS ON THE WAY Pointers to the cards Rather than providing a list of fixed meanings, each card is presented with a commentary and a set of questions that readers can use to deepen their appreciation. The Wands, Swords, Cups and Coins of the Minor Arcana are color-coded red, tan, blue and green and are represented by Tudors, Cavaliers, Roundheads and people from Restoration England respectively. The court cards are divided into Page, Knight, Queen and King. The Major Arcana cards present a kind of parallel dreamworld of English magic. Broadly, the cards follow a similar structure to Pamela Colman Smith's classic 'Rider-Waite' deck, though with some surprising twists to the imagery. PART FOUR: THE MEMORY PALACE Building a deeper relationship with the cards The memory palace is technique for improving memory that derives from classical times. It was used extensively in English magic, and instructions are given here for building a memory palace to help unlock the deeper mysteries of the cards. Learn More
