Welcome to a website dedicated to the appreciation of Tarot decks created between the 15th and early 19th centuries.

The illustrated HISTORY tells the story of Tarot’s birth in Italy nearly 600 years ago, and how Tarot has evolved during five centuries of travelling the globe.

The CARTOMANCY section teaches you everything you need to read with historic decks.

In the ICONOGRAPHY section you’ll learn about the medieval origins of each trump card and how it evolved into its contemporary form.

Read my BLOG for book reviews, the tarot-astrology connection, and what’s new in Italian tarot.

Whether you’re a collector, researcher, or card reader, your love of Tarot connects you to an ancient legacy. I hope this website will deepen your appreciation of Tarot history and inspire you to preserve this heritage as we move into the 21st century.
