GLASS TAROTS by Elisabetta Trevisan



GLASS TAROTS – by Elisabetta Trevisan and prepared by Pietro Alligo – Torino 1991 for Lo Scarabeo, with a small suggestion and instruction booklet, also includes a booklet with historical background of the tarot.

The 22 Major Arcana has multi-colored cards in an art nouveau and stained glass look, originally pastels and tempera painted on glass. Printed on good card stock, at 2 5/8 by 4 3/4 inches, these cards are easy to handle and shuffle, plastic-coated and durable. The back design is reversible, featuring twin peacocks in the style of the deck.

As rich and complex as life itself, the Glass Tarots(later expanded to 78 cards and renamed the Crystal Tarot) blends the look of stained glass with art nouveau style to gracious effect. The use of patterns within patterns gives depth to the traditional pictures of the Tarot. Influenced by both the Rider-Waite and Thoth Tarot decks, this modern Tarot is an exquisite blend of the old and the new. The familiar images are all there, while the details―executed in brilliant and unusual colors―invite viewers to linger, to search, to make sure they miss nothing―an effective trait in a tool of self-examination.
