Untold Tarot presents historic styles of reading little known in the modern era. It teaches traditional ways of reading used for pre-twentieth-century decks, drawing upon older cartomantic arts such as blending and pairing cards, reading lines, and following "line of sight" to piece together untold stories according to the direction in which the characters are facing. The book also includes a selection of card spreads drawn from traditional French and Italian sources, plus methods of reading cards based on the author's own extensive research.
This is an Il Meneghello limited edition printing of the Italian Soprafino (very refined - super fine) Tarocco Deck. The deck was originally created in 1835 when the Milanese printer Ferdinand Gumppenberg commissioned a deck from the artist/engraver Carlo Dellarocca. The deck had a lasting influence on 19th century card artists and printers. The cards are handmade and faithfully reproduce the originals. Gentle markings and stains are intact and give the whole deck a lovely antique look and feel. Shipped new and sealed in the original box. Edition number will vary with each order.
