Historical Animal Tarot Playing Cards, Variation on Paris Pattern
A faithful reproduction of a historical Tarot playing deck of cards in a bold style from 1805 based on the French-suited card games but introducing in its trump card design, folklorish carnival animal characters with elements of slapstick (from Eastern Europe).
This deck includes numbers 1-10, an ace, 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.
