4.0 out of 5 stars Supremely beautiful deck for the experienced reader, 22 Feb 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Visconti Tarots (Cards)
The relationship the reader forms with any given deck is, of course, a very personal thing. Either the images on the cards spark off the necessary imaginative processes or they do not and only handling the cards themselves will tell you, but this deck is a marvellous thing to possess, simply for its superb and ancient art work. Faithful copies of the original Visconti-Sforza deck, (produced in Renaissance Italy to celebrate the marriage of a powerful nobleman's daughter) they must surely represent some of the finest craftsmanship ever devoted to the creation of a Tarot. It is a shame, however, that the artwork on the few more modern cards which have had to be substituted for those originals which have been lost over the ages, eg."The Devil" is not quite up to the standard of the reproduction cards.
I have found them relatively easy to read and a great pleasure just to look upon, but the size necessary to show the images to their best advantage means awkward handling for average hands. I would strongly recommend this deck though, as a gift for a friend who reads Tarot, if you are lucky enough to have one, as the beauty of these cards should guarantee you free readings for a long time to come.
