I Naibi di Giovanni Vacchetta

$75.00

I Naibi di Giovanni Vacchetta is a rare and beautiful historic deck with whimsical touches. It's one of the few pre-RWS Tarots whose pip cards of Chalices, Swords, Wands, and Denari are mostly illustrated. This along with the keyword on the top of each card (in Italian) and subtle details help illuminate the cards meaning. This historically important deck known by various names (I Naibi di Giovanni Vacchetta, Tarot of the Master, Tarocchi del Maestro, The Vacchetta Tarot) , was originally printed from engravings created b y Giovanni Vacchetta in Turin, Italy in 1893.  The 78 matte finish cards are finished in a watercolor palette that includes vivid blues, reds, greens, and yellows. The decks are new and unopened.  The specific deck number from the edition is unknown and will be revealed when unboxing the deck.

    Incredible cards, though fragile

    These cards are as amazing in person as they are in the shots here. The colors are beautiful and the reproduced line work is outstanding. I wanted to write a review simply to say that they are extremely fragile. They're essentially on good paper stock -- not good card stock, but good paper stock. There *are* card sleeves in the right size, though they're difficult to find. I recommend putting them in sleeves if you intend to use them regularly, and especially if you're kind of hard on cards like I can be. This is not affecting my review at all, it's 5 stars, as this is not a problem with the deck. I would have just ordered sleeves ahead of time had I known this, that's all.

    Magnificent!!!!

    This deck is a beautiful work of art.
    It's not only beautiful, l but the quality of the materials and the paper that was used to print it is superb.
    It has a mat quality finish with a paper that has a feeling of an antique printing material unlike any other in the market and the artwork is Simple Italian beauty and delicate with gorgeous bright colors and having the feel of an antique deck like no other.
    It is a Marseille style type deck with pip cards, but each card has illustrated Pips which makes it unique and very easy to read.
    If you are a a serious Tarot collector and passionate about Tarot art this one is for you.
    You will not be disappointed.

    Superb Historic Deck

    Lovely design and color. I find most Marseille style pip decks ugly but this Italian pip deck is graceful and lovely. This is my second Il Meneghello deck and I appreciate their workmanship and attention to detail. I bought the deck for research so can’t speak to how it would hold up to daily shuffling and reading. The card stock is sturdy with a matte finish but I would worry about the square corners if I were using it on the daily. Also wanted to say that there was a glitch with my order and Tarot Arts team got me a replacement deck super fast and they were very kind about it. Love the cards and great experience with Tarot Arts.
