I guess I must be spending way too much time wandering around the web, for I have stumbled upon yet another unique set of majors that I was previously unaware of. In this case it is by the Italian artist Paolo Rovegno and takes the rather unusual form of 22 engraved ex libris created for 22 different people.
An article about them (including a list of who each was created for) can be found here.
Most tantalizingly, that article mentions a limited edition book that includes the entire set, but at the time of the article (2004) it had already sold out. I haven't been able to find any mention of it at any of the usual rare book sites, but it's been added to my list of things to look out for.
Hi, I am a new member and interested in the exlibris-Tarots of Rovegno - Some names of the owners in the list (Artiflex) are not correct or are not at the correct place/card and the card for Lidia Piana (The Strength / La forza) has a wrong number (XI in stead of VIII) - The folowing ones I have never seen:
Tarot V (The hierphant / Il papa) owner is probably Enzo Pellai
Tarot VII (The chariot / Il carro) owner is probably Giuseppe Capusso or Capasso
Tarot XVII (The star / La stella) owner is probably Barbara Rovegno
Tarot XX (The judgement / Il giudizio) owner is probably Francesco Del Sole
Who can help me (I have asked Mr. Pablo Rovegno about the problems, but he did not answered my mail - I think because he does not speak English good enough - I do not speak Italian, but I have translated my mail in Italian by "Babelfish" but I am sure the result was very poor). I want to know for sure who the owners of those 4 Tarots are and like to have a picture/scan too
Of course I like to collect all those tarots (I have 10 now) so if you are (or knowing) one of the owners please contact me
This last weekend I won a (non-tarot-related) exlibris from Peter, and, remembering his posting to this thread all those years ago, revisited it to discover (if anyone's still interested) that all 22 of the Rovegno ex libris tarot images are now posted to Mr. Rovegno's site here.
