RESTORATION OF 78 CARDS OF CLAUDE BURDEL MARSEILLE STYLE TAROT DECK

Lo Scarabeo's Universal Tarot of Marseille 78 card deck. These cards are a re-colored reproduction of a deck by Swiss card-maker Claude Burdel, dating from 1751, making this modern set based on one of the older Marseille decks. Cards show the original 18th century wood-cut line-work in black & brown tones, with characters and symbols colored in generally primary color palette of red, blue & yellow, with additional greens, browns & flesh-tones. Card backgrounds have pastel water color textures.

Suits have color-coded backgrounds, continued on the traditionally arrayed Court cards. Major Arcana & Court cards have multilingual titles (English, Spanish, Italian, French, German & Dutch). Pip cards have colorful symbols with additional floral elements. Card back designs are reversible, with an embroidered appearance. 1 title & 1 advertising card are included. Card finish is semi-gloss.

The 63 page, multilingual (English, Spanish, Italian, French & German) small instruction booklet has an introductory section written by Lee Bursten with a brief history of the Tarot tradition, the Trumps (Major Arcana), which includes a few sentences of individual upright meanings, and short one line meanings for the Minor Arcana.

Card Dimensions:

2 5/8" x 4 3/4" x .011"
66 mm x 120 mm x .29 mm
