Petit jeu de Madame Lenormand Geûens – Seaux
Lenormand cards are different than Tarotcards. While Tarot cards possess a variety of symbolism per card and the interpretation of the spread can be complex, Lenormand cards show just one symbol per card. Therefore, their interpretation is often said to be more confined. That may be so, but the clear representation of the symbols shown makes the afore said interpretation readily accessible and leaves no doubt what they mean. Over the years many have been published, mainly Belgium, France and Germany.
The Sheridan Douglas Tarot was first published in 1972 by Mandragora Press, 31 St Martin’s Lane, London WC2N 4EY, England. The cards were designed by David Sheridan and the accompanying instruction leaflet was composed by Alfred Douglas.
Abbreviated and borrowed from various sources (in slightly different wording…) ‘Originally the deck was meant to accompany a book, The Tarot: the origins, meaning and uses of the cards by Alfred Douglas.
One Year Anniversary!
We started e-mailing out a newsletter, which eventually was named the Tarocks Tribune. These newsletters were extensive from the beginning, so we decided to make them more accessibly by sharing them here. This is our third. To read them all, click on the Tribune category near the top of our blog page.
Greetings! We are happy to present you with the third Tarocks newsletter.
First of all, we thank you for visiting our pages and signing up with us. We truly hope that you will enjoy the images and the descriptions of the decks shown on Tarocks.
If while reading this newsletter you think of someone in your life who loves cards as much as we do, feel free to forward them this e-mail or share this link with them.
Before continuing with the usual business, we are very proud to announce that Tarocks has now been online for a full year!
The Tarot Mitico Vasco / Euskal Tarot / Basque Mythical Tarot was published in 1982 by Fournier, Victoria Spain.
It is said that the cards offer an interesting insight in Basque symbolism. It is certain, that one has to be familiar with that symbolism in order to work with it. If it adds to the interpretation of the tarot in general is open for discussion. In any case, it is very colorful and the typical images are absolutely inspiring.
The Xultun Tarot was created by Peter Balin and published by Arcana Publishing Co., Wilmot, Wisconsin USA in 1976. The deck is still I print, but the one described on these pages is the first 1976 edition. The box is slightly scuffed on the edges, otherwise the box as well as the cards are in good condition. Comes with a small explanatory booklet.
