Update: The Game of Saturn & Sola-Busca tarot

February 3, 2017

We are very pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, who have the only complete set of the Sola-Busa tarot, for the use of the images in Peter Mark Adams’ The Game of Saturn. The colour and clarity of these images is breathtaking and has facilitated some late breakthroughs in the thesis. The images will be reproduced in full colour throughout to illustrate the provocative findings of Peter Mark Adams in his study of this Renaissance masterwork. 

As a result, the printing of the book has been delayed by a month. We understand the frustration that print delays cause, but we are sure that the inclusion of such important images will compensate for this. We are now expecting the standard edition to ship in mid March. Updates on the print schedule will, as usual, be given on our social media, and an email sent out to all those who have pre-ordered when the books are in stock. 

We can also confirm that we will be producing an edition of the Sola-Busca tarot using the Brera images. This will be the first full edition of the tarot based on recent high resolution images of the original cards, a previous edition only reproduced the trumps. The deck will come with a Little White Book by Peter Mark Adams. A subscriber email will be sent when the cards are available to order.  

It is our aim, with the Sola-Busca deck and the images in The Game of Saturn, to publish with Peter Mark Adams the definitive edition and exegesis of this most enigmatic tarrochi deck. Again, we thank our readers for their patience for what is our most ambitious project to date.
