Here are a few photos of Vito Tumiati's "Sinfonia di Tarocchi", a portfolio of hand printed etchings on rag paper, produced in an edition of 30 copies in 2003-04.

A musical theme runs throughout the deck.

The portfolio is accompanied by a substantial 192 page book, "Fare le Carte alla Storia....applicazione domestica dei Tarocchi", in Italian, offering descriptions of individual cards, some 19th century letters, along with about 140 pages of vintage photos of what appears to be Ethiopia & its people.

Also included is an offset printed card version of the deck, a sheet with explanations of the imagery, and an essay about the artist's intentions.
