from the booklet introduction: Reproduction of the Pierpont Morgan-Bergamo tarocchi deck is an important event for tarot collectors and researchers of art history. These rare cards have been reproduced in authentic color tones from the most nearly complete extant Visconti-Sforza tarocchi deck dating from mid-fifteenth century Milan.
Italy holds the honor of having produced several of the earliest known hand-painted playing card packs that contain the mystical and allegorical trump cards included in tarocchi decks.
The Visconti-Sforza tarocchi deck has been reproduced in full color by Grafica Gutenberg, 24020 Gorle (Bergamo), Italy, in cooperation with U.S. Games Systems, Inc., New York 10016.
