This deck features artwork based on Giotto di Bendone, a 13th century Italian artist, by Guido Zibordi. Giotto was considered to be the father of renaissance painting. His work marks the transition from Romanesque to Gothic art, heralding those human and expressive values which Humanism took on in later centuries.

While faithful to to the original master painter's style,. Giotto Tarot
has a modern three-dimensional view and perspective that painted images from Giotto's time did not possess.
Some cards have outdoor scenery with open sky, others have a tarnished, old-gold background, and some (like the Chalices suit) are enclosed in a three-sided pale-green room.
