Vintage & Rare (Tarot) Card Decks
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 fourth. To read them all, click on the Tribune category near the top of our blog page.
Greetings! We are happy to present you with our first newsletter of 2019 in which we will offer to you our latest findings and inspiring topics.
First of all, we want to thank you for visiting our website and signing up for our newsletter. 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 share this link with them so they can sign up.
In this newsletter you can read about Michael Dummet's now out of print book 'The Game of Tarot.' We also share some interesting information about Oswald Wirth and a photo of a very rare printing that is not in the Oswald Wirth blog post, new novelty card decks & our newest additions to the blog.
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.
