A reproduction of original Marseille Gassman Tarot majors.

To answer your next question: No, I don't intend to do a full 78 card deck.

I have only recently gotten into the Marseille tarot -- The soulless art of the modern Marseille decks is probably what turned me off. That and the bright primary colors. But. The originals have character and depth. A whole different thing. I cut my teeth on the Rider/Waite/Smith tarot in the late 1960s. But with my late love affair with Lenormand cards I decided that I didn't need all the extra cards with the standard tarot deck and want to read with only the majors.

This deck is from c. 1870 and this reproduction is a deck for readers, not collectors; they do not come in an elaborate presentation box but with a cellophane band from the printer. They are printed on premium card stock and are regular tarot size, 2-3/4" x 4-3/4".

Here is a slide show of all the majors http://s304.photobucket.com/user/Tag_Jorrit/slideshow/Gass

I may have one on hand but I don't keep "stock" so delivery may take 3-4 weeks.
