Originally published at the end of the nineteenth century in black and white, Michela Guadenzi
has skillfully colored Giovanni Vacchetta's inspiring Major Arcana and elegant pip cards.
A teacher of art at the Polytechnic of Turin and a patron of the arts, Vacchetta incorporated
some Masonic symbolism into this masterful deck.
The cards were designed as if he were carving them from marble.
The images have a sense of material solidity, yet are characterized by graceful lines.
An important historic reproduction modified for modern audiences by the addition of delicate color,
this deck will be of interest to collectors and readers alike.
Vacchetta was not only a skilled artist but also a scholar and learned iconographist
hence the name: Tarot of the Master. 
These cards are titled in untranslated Italian, exactly as appeared in the nineteenth century deck.
The 21st century edition, showcases the original artwork with the addition of a narrow green border
and, in the lower left hand edge, five keywords expressing the card's concept, in five languages.
The backs of the cards are a black and white mirror image of the scene on the Magician card.
