The Dessuart Oracle was published by Grimaud (France Cartes) in 1986
However, it must be said that the images of the cards are truly dramatic. Without a lot of trouble one could create (predict) past, present and the future while going along with the strong images that leave absolutely no doubt about their meaning. One could follow the spreads offered, one could also forget about those and follow ones own pattern. The harsh and realistic eighties-style imagery does the rest… A magnificent deck of cards!
The cards were designed by Patrice Serres (Paris, 1946) who also worked for the well-known French magazine Charlie Hebdo (from ‘Je suis Charlie’…). The symbolism of the cards has been provided by Magus Dessuart, a Parisian clairvoyant about whom no background information could be found by us.
