Large-format (3" x 5.625" / 7.7 mm x 14.3 mm) Lo Scarabeo reproduction of the influential Sola Busca deck, whose origins have been traced back to Ferrara, Italy in the late 15th century. While following the structure of a standard 78-card tarot, the major arcana depict figures from Roman history and the Bible. There is evidence suggesting that the Sola Busca provided major influences upon the design of the much-later Rider-Waite-Smith tarot. This edition initially issued in a limited printing of 2,999 individually numbered copies in 2017. After the limited print run was exhausted, Lo Scarabeo re-released (in 2019) the high-quality reprint in a premium hardcover box with 144-page softcover guidebook by Paola Gnaccolini.

This is an exceptional edition of Tarot cards. In addition to the important historical value of this issue, the cards are very beautiful and large. The box in which the cards reside is very nice and quite sturdy. Inside is a card with the copy number. In short: an edition not to be missed.
