Description: These wonderfully whimsical images evoke a playful, irreverent perspective on the Traditional Tarot. The etchings are primarily sepia-toned, with splashes of pinks, greens and blues. The cards are printed on slightly textured, cream-colored matte cardstock which adds to the allure of a special collection of artwork. This delightful deck is recommended for collectors and Tarot art enthusiasts. Only 100 numbered, signed copies are available.

A humble attempt to translate the artist, Gioia Giorio's own comments:
The choice of these images is intentionally ironic because the faithful joker that has guided me to their meanings did so in a spirit that the ancient symbols could mature over time for me. I have not thought it opportune to explain all the details of each Tarot card, in order to leave space for personal interpretation, to respect the intuition and sensibility of everyone.
