The Game of Saturn has been our fastest selling title to date, and due to the unprecedented demand we have produced a high quality full colour large format paperback edition. These books are printed and bound in the United Kingdom.
The success of the hardback has allowed us to keep this important work in print, and to make it available at a lower cost than the standard hardback. It is a significant book that deserves magisterial treatment, and a wide audience.
Quarto (280 x 222 mm)
320 pp printed in full colour throughout
£40 plus shipping
The Rouge edition preserves the same size, dimensions and content as the hardback.
“An edition of the Sola-Busca tarrochi deck is in preparation with our printer, and will be produced as a cult object that befits the dark nature of Saturn. This will be the first faithful reproduction of the full Sola-Busca tarrochi deck since its creation over 500 years ago, and is based on modern high quality images of the original deck with the permission of the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan.”
