Delightful (and thought-provoking) images. The woodcuts in the book seem clearer - or perhaps they're more finely drawn.

I don't think, that the deck really survived, but I don't know it for sure. Probably the colored versions are a remake from the book. Somehow a "book+cards" production, like Michelino deck, Boiardo Tarocchi poem and Murners and Ringmann's teaching.
