Tarocco Neoclassico (Grumppenberg)
This deck is a fine reproduction of a Milanese original dating from around 1810 by the printer Grumppenberg. The delicately alluring images are metal engravings, hand-coloured, in a neoclassical style situated in the era. What is remarkable about this deck is the fact that the artist has achieved substantial three-dimensionality and subtlety given the limitations of the form.
This Meneghello edition is limited to 2,000 copies, each hand-numbered and issued in a presentation box. The cards show the imagery with especial richness, being printed on matte card with high-quality ink and production values.
