An absolutely stunning tarot deck that is a near-perfect, contemporary reproduction of a deck of tarot cards produced in Marseilles in 1760 by Nicolas Conver. These tarot cards are believed to hold ancient, esoteric wisdom and are used for divination through tarot readings.
The restoration of the "Nicolas Conver Tarot Deck" consisted of the team at Artisan Tarot redrawing and recoloring the original images. It is a beautiful and elegant deck of tarot cards that offers a perfect tribute to the original while integrating the contemporary touches desired by a modern tarot reader or tarot enthusiast.
Each deck of "Nicolas Conver Artisan Tarot Cards" is packed into a luxurious tuck case. This is a standard 78-card tarot deck featuring a remarkable Marseilles tarot design. Also know as Tarot of Marseilles (or Tarot de Marseilles), this is an Italian style of tarot featuring their own unique takes on the familiar tarot cards you'd often find in the standard Rider-Waite Tarot Deck.
The "Nicolas Conver Artisan Tarot Deck" cards still offers the Major Arcana and Minor arcana. The suits are also the same as a Rider-Waite deck—wands, cups, swords and coins. However, the "Nicolas Conver Artisan Tarot Deck" was originally created to be used in special tarot card games. So, on the Minor Arcana, you'll find pips similar to what could be found in a deck of playing cards.
This means that this tarot deck harnesses the power of esoteric numerology. Tarot readers that only used the Rider-Waite Smith Tarot Deck will find this quite liberating. The "Nicolas Conver Tarot Deck" allows you to strip tarot reading back to its core themes and reach a new level of interpretation. You'll discover how to better trust you own instincts and uncover deep and personalized tarot readings that may differ from what you are used to with a deck of standard tarot cards.
You get all 78 tarot cards, an information card and a promotional card. The deck is made in French to match the original, but the extra cards are in English.
