Il Tarocco di Sissi

Dublin Core


Il Tarocco di Sissi
The Tarot Deck of Sissi
Das Tarot der Sissi


Empress Elisabeth of Austria


78 cards plus two different title cards (one for Italcards and one for Bagaglino Hotels), with a little red instructional booklet. No box -- mine came with a red card stock wrap around folder, but no actual box.

The cards measure 11 cm tall x 7 cm wide.

The deck commemorates the life of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, and was commissioned by the Bagaglino Hotel. This was a limited edition of 4000 numbered copies, 1000 of which went to the Bagaglino. My copy is unnumbered -- either that, or the card with the number is simply missing from my copy (I purchased it used).

The card stock is sturdy and slightly flexible, with a matte finish. There's also a subtle texture to the card stock -- it feels pleasant to handle.

Back are almost reversible but not quite.

Justice is 8 and Strength is 11. Strength is also misspelled, as Strenght. The Fool is numbered 0.

Card titles appear in English, Italian, and German. Likewise, the instructional booklet is in English, Italian, and German.

The minors are fully scenic. Suits are Swords, Wands, Cups, and Pentacles. Courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.
