"Giovanni Vacchetta produced these wonderful cards in 1893. The designs of the cards, originally rendered in black and white, are delicate and ornate. They contain several variations from the traditional images of the tarot. For instance, the Hermit shows a seated figure, resembling the sage Hermes Trismegistus, reading a book. The card of Strength shows a woman holding a column--an old medieval image for this Trump--in addition to a lion, a more common image associated with the card. The card of the Moon depicts the goddess Diana, armed with a bow and a hound by her side, while the card of The Sun features a nude male violinist. By adding light, graceful colors to Vechhetta's cards, artist Michela Gaudenzi has performed a great service for contemporary tarot lovers."--Sandra Tabatha Cicero, author and illustrator of The Golden Dawn Magical Tarot
