Ferdinando Crippa I Tarocchi


Ferdinando Crippa I Tarocchi is a fun and sassy deck.  Originally  Created by Ferdinando Crippa in 1978, here reprinted by il Menegello in 2016 in a limited edition of 700 decks.  The dour facial expressions on the Major Arcana and Court cards are a bit of a mystery and add to the decks charm.  One can imagine that the characters were plucked from their preferred archetypal duties to unwillingly pose for prosperity.   The Majors are not titled or numbered but most users will recognize their position in the deck. The front cover of the booklet has the limited-edition number. Packaged in the classic Il Meneghello 2-part box with wax seal.
