Historical Playing Tarot Cards, Damen Tarock
Popularised in France around 1750, Tarot or Tarock decks were originally a playing card game rather than the mystic card decks we may initially think of. This deck includes numbers 1-4 in Diamonds and Hearts, 7-10 in Spades and Clubs, three male face cards, Jack, Cavalier and King and a Queen per each suit, as well as 21 trump cards and a Joker.
A natural progression for our shop and our love of paper, given the parallel narrative between card manufacturing and decorative paper making, both utilising the craft knowledge of woodblock print.
