Product Description

The Visconti-Sforza Tarot is perhaps the oldest extant Tarot pack in our possession, and continues to be the object of considerable investigation and speculation about the affairs of church and state in mid 15th century Italy, and the teachings of philosophy and other mysteries of Medieval and Renaissance Europe. For Stewart Warren the Visconti-Sforza Tarot is a hand-held art collection and tool that one may use as a set of flashcards for reflection on our personal and universal condition and evolution. Pointing to my Heart is a collection of twenty two poems provided side by side with corresponding color images of the Triumphs from this historic deck. Card images are reproduced here unaltered and in their original state, including nail holes where they were evidently fixed to a wall or other surface where they might interact on a regular basis with admirers, students and adepts of an earlier age. The poems, accompanied by full-color images provided by Osvaldo Menegazzi from Milano, Italy, are offered in the spirit of Tarot that they might resonate within the reader and spawn original and deeper connections to the remarkable mysteries inherent within us.
