Don't forget Giordano Berti who did a reproduction of the Sola Busca deck a year ago and has recently done a reproduction of the 1830 Vergnano tarot which is a Piedmont-style TdM. I have both decks and they are beautiful, and beautifully packaged.

I don't think he has a website, but here's a link to his facebook page which has photos and information on both decks.

Le Fanu,
I've ordered several decks and they are in the mail on their way. I emailed back and forth with Igor and he told me how to do it.

I went through Igor's website to the listings of the decks on the French eBay. I added them to my watchlist and then signed into eBay.com to check out (much easier in English). I clicked "Buy It Now" to commit to purchase all the decks that I wanted. Then I went to my purchased items list and sent an invoice request to Igor. He then sent me an invoice including shipping costs to the US.

I emailed him beforehand and he offered me two different shipping options.

I received my decks without any issues. So, even though it is a little complicated, the ordering method I describe above does work!

Sola Busca Tarot


I received the limited edition Sola Busca Tarot from Giordano Berti recently. A beautiful deck. I may post about it when I have studied it closely.

You're welcome! If you decide to review any of these decks, can you post here and let us know? I'm not much of a reviewer myself, so I really enjoy reading yours.

If anyone is considering ordering Igor's Besancon deck, I recommend the mini as it comes with two alternate cards (the regular size does not).

And as far as I can tell (without having done too much study), his Besancon deck is identical to his Conver deck, except for the Junon & Jupiter card substitutions, of course.
