This small batch of 1st edition books was published April 2015, especially for the Tarot Art History Spring Tour
and we are happy to share the few remaining copies as we don't want to leave our friends who couldn't join us empty handed.
The goal is to eventually fully fund an expanded version, with additional material & imagery but in the meantime or in case that does not materialize, here is the original, limited edition!
All orders receive bonus gifties (see image below) of at least 2 Tarot art postcards, magnet & matching artsy stamps which pertain to details in the Travel Guide. There are currently a few books in stock.

Feedback from Charlotte Porter - Professional editor, Tarot reader and researcher.
Three times in my life, I have been fortunate enough to visit Italy. And I was even more fortunate to join Arnell and her husband, Michael, for all three. In two tours led by the late, beloved Tarot artist and scholar Brian Williams, we were introduced to many of the amazing things that you will see on these pages. Arnell and her collaborators on this book have added immeasurably to that, ranging the world for an brief exploration of Tarot history before zeroing in on the streets of cities across Italy -- maps included! -- to peek inside cathedrals, palaces and places of business to show how Tarot has flavored the life of that country. With this book, I can live those heady, sunlit days again and discover new marvels. And you, too, can now walk in the paths of the people of the Renaissance and see their world with an educated eye. Let this book guide you. You will not be disappointed.
