The Original Lenormand Deck
The Original Lenormand
An authentic reproduction of the original “Game of Hope”, dating from 1800, housed in the British Museum.
This deck is the prototype of all Petit Lenormand decks and the earliest original set known.
Professionally photographed and licensed from the Trustees of the British Museum in this limited edition of 250 copies.
We are presently making available copies (3rd edition) with antiquated blank backs. These are closer to the “cardboard” colour of the originals and do not have the green tinge of the first edition. These will be sold until we have reached our licensed amount and then we will not reprint until next year (2014).
Nb. There are slight variations of border alignment in the deck, but this is no more than the original nor some contemporary decks.
Original Lenormand 3rd edition, with blank antiquated backs.
Available exclusively through Tarot Professionals, this deck has been respectfully re-cast by award-winning artist Ciro Marchetti, correcting slight deformations in the hand-cutting of the cards and bending due to age.
The deck is provided with the first English translation of the original game instructions, provided by Steph Myriel Es-Tragon.
For more information on using this deck for divination, please see our range of Lenormand courses! The Learning Lenormand book by Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin, published by Llewellyn, is now available.
** The Original Lenormand deck comes with an extra Gentleman and Lady card for optional use in same-sex relationship readings.
The deck is provided as 38 cards in a small organza bag with translated original game instructions.
Price … $49.99 including package & postage worldwide.
