Tarocco Numerico: 22 Arcani in 22 Numeri
A deck of numbers drawn from many cultures and designed by artisan Osvaldo Menegazzi. Each number corresponds to and shares characteristics of the meaning of a particular Major Arcana. The matching hand-crafted box is equally magnificent. 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 beautifully 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. A treasured favorite, it is a rare and wonderful set that any Tarot or art collector would prize! This set became available in late 2008.

The following note roughly translated from a description sent from 'Il Meneghello' along with sample cards. It is also posted in Italian.

''In 2008 Osvaldo Menegazzi presents us with the Tarocco Numerico. In an age in which many cultures mix and meld together, Osvaldo thought to expand this into the field of numbers.
Therefore numbers of several countries of the world (China Egypt, Italy Tibet, India...) become the characters of this new project...
Placing them in the order of the 22 mysterious ones, the numbers have become a coupling of the other, like in an ideological artistic chain of the world.''
