Tarot de l’An 2000

“Tarot de l’An 2000” designed by Pino Zac (Giuseppe Zaccaria born in Italy 1930 – died 1985), published by France Cartes in 1981. The double-ended trump cards feature different ironic cartoons at each end, expressing the artist’s dismay and disillusionment with end-of-20th century life, the motor car, petroleum industry, electronics and the Freudian collective unconscious. The Trumps are numbered 1-21, but their titles are left to players’ imagination. The minor cards (pip cards) are transformed with more spicy sketches.
