Tarot de Marseille: Anima Antiqua (Out of Print)
This premium, limited-edition deck (limited to 2999 copies) is a philological reproduction of Nicholas Conver's timeless 1760 Tarot de Marseille, which is often cited as the predecessor to modern decks like the Rider-Waite-Smith and the Thoth. Originally hand printed with a distinctive four-colour palette, its printing was dominated by the use of sky blues and greens. The 1760 version was produced using wood template stencils for over a century, and over time the decks were produced with a weathered, aged look. Lovingly recreated from originals found in the greatest tarot collections in the world, this reproduction -- a part of Lo Scarabeo's Anima Antiqua (Ancient Soul) line -- has been printed on premium-quality cardstock. The colours stand out exceptionally well amidst the cream-colored background of the cardstock, making drawing the eye to important details and symbols in the cards.
Among the many versions of the Tarot de Marseille, Conver's 1760 edition is often seen as of the oldest and most iconic versions of this deck.
