|I just received Patrick Valenza's Trionfi della Luna Paradoxical (classic) 333 deck and I'm thrilled.
Patrick Valenza's original Deviant Moon Tarot deck is well known to many if not all in the Tarot community , although I must admit that when it made it's debut I couldn't reconcile myself to the quirky style of his artwork. I just said "it's not my style, not for me".
It wasn't until I received the Trionfi and previewed the additional cards that were included that I realized what I had been missing out on.
The extras comprised 3 variants of the Trionfi Paradoxical Star, Judgment and Devil cards as well as a samples of his oracle cards, a sample card of the his borderless 9 of Coins from the Deviant Moon Tarot and a 9 of Coins card from his original Trionfi.
There will be a 2nd edition of his original Trionfi due in 2019 and they can be pre-ordered from his website.
His Oracle will be published by US Games in 2019.
I must admit that aside from the artwork in the Trionfi Paradoxical it was the overall treatment of the color palette that intrigued me, the creation of images producing an effect like film negatives that drew me in.
Now that I see his work in person, I have a whole new perspective on his artistic approach and vision.
I'm late to the game but better late than never.
