Tarot de Marseille – Chalk on Blackboard Style (choice of back cover)

I have designed and created four different and distinct styles of the Tarot de Marseille by John Noblet c.1650. Hopefully one of these unique designs will speak to you.

This deck is my original 78-card tarot deck, created in a ‘Chalk on Blackboard’ style. My other three decks are:

Colourful Grunge
Vintage ‘Distressed’
English Named Deck (Red & Gold)

Each card is created by hand so even though I create them all similarly they are not uniform. Made from premium 330 gsm superior quality cardstock with black core (smooth finish) in the usual tarot card size of 2.75″ x 4.75″. They come sealed in a white tuck box.  To see a gallery of the entire deck please click here.

There is NO booklet with this deck. If you are new to reading the Tarot, there are many websites on the internet that offer free meanings and instructions on how to read the cards. Plus there are many how-to instruction books available on Amazon.

I also offer a selection of designs for the back cover of this deck, if you go to Tarot Card Back Designs you are more than welcome to select one of these. Please include the name of your back cover of choice in the space provided below, when you place your order. If no custom back is chosen your deck will be printed with the standard back shown here and in the gallery.

The original version of the Marseille Tarot was published in Paris circa 1650 by master card-maker Jean Noblet. The Noblet deck is known for having the title LAMORT (Death) on the XIII Major Arcana card whereas most of the other Tarot de Marseille decks have the card numbered but unnamed, e.g., Jean Dodal Tarot (circa 1701) and Nicolas Conver Tarot (circa 1761).

The Noblet deck is also known for its Fool card that has graphic attention to detail in the private parts of the Fool. As well, the animal on the Fool card is said by some to resemble a cat more closely than a dog. In other early versions of the Tarot de Marseille, the image of the animal depicted in the Fool card is such that there is less consensus as to whether the animal is either canine or feline. Another particularity of this deck was its small size.

I love bringing history back to life so if you are a tarot reader/psychic who appreciates the history of the tarot, this could be a deck for you. I created my images with a chalk on blackboard style for a completely unique design and for those of you who do not like to be distracted by colour. I kept the authenticity of the imagery, down to the minor details, intact; but I created them in the original tarot size of today. You can see all the images in the gallery as indicated above and a comparison to size and look in the image on the left. I would like to acknowledge and thank the Flornoy estate for allowing me to use the Letarot Noblet images as the source for my creation of the artwork designs for this deck.
