Tarocchi Metaforici
Very Limited Edition, Hand-Crafted Deck & Box Set
Signed & Numbered by Artist: Osvaldo Menegazzi

An example of the large and small Tarocchi Metaforici.

3 large sets of Metaforici with a small one, each so unique

Less expensive (decorated cardboard box) version of Metaforici features large set of the cards, and numbered, stamped title card Limited to 250 copies (€60.)

A deck of gorgeous calligraphy designs based on the Major Arcana. Each letter corresponds to the name of the card and shares characteristics of the meanings of that Major Arcana. The matching hand-crafted box is equally beautiful. A Tarot card from the set adorns the front (mounted on thick cardstock so it has a 3D effect), as well as Osvaldo's signature hot-wax seal. Each set has a signed & numbered signature card in lovely handwritten calligraphy on specialty paper. The deck is wonderfully illustrated and the artwork is mounted on thick cardstock with a dark brown paper wrapping around to the front of the cards and folded down at each corner, giving it a classy, antique look. This very limited edition, hand-crafted collectable comes in two sizes (details below). A personal favorite, it is a rare and fabulous treasure to behold! Created by Osvaldo Menegazzi, it became available in early 2008.

Additionally a third, more reasonably priced set of Tarocchi Metaforici is available. This version comes with a large sized deck of the cards in a decorated cardboard box and is also a numbered, limited edition set (of 250, priced €60.)
