Tarocco di Garbarino by Mauro Garbarino

Yet another interesting deck I've got out of the Hans Wesseling-Collection, and this on many accounts what to think about a deck made by an Italian artist with fresh titles on the cards printed in (probably) 1983 in a limited edition by a now no longer exciting publisher in a limited edition with the quaint run of 831, but with on the cards themselves the name of Jollycards of Genova as publisher (or where they just the printers?) .To top all that it is a modern rendition of the Etteilla Tarot in black and white.

This rarity among deck is populated by strange personages, organic shapes and wild dreamlike compositions  forming a true Art Tarot.
