One of his many talents is as custodian* of the most marvellous Wolfgang Mayer 78-card Sola Busca Tarot. If you have been keeping up with my posts on the Tarot Tour of Italy (*looks wounded* You haven't?!) you will know that on Day One I basically died and went to heaven after seeing the Sola Busca Tarot in the FLESH.
I already own a Lo Scarabeo copy, which is fine .... but I really, REALLY wanted a full copy with BIG cards and CLARITY. Truthfully, I wanted to steal the original from the Brera! The Mayer deck is the very next best thing, I promise you...

So, before I departed for Italy, I purchased a copy of the Mayer Sola Busca from Giordano (copies still available folks!) and arranged to pick it up from him in person in Italy!
Would this be tricky to organise?!
