Tarot de Marseille of the New Incarnation, unique TdM type deck with Fully Illustrated Minors Arcana created according the TdM system
One of the principles of the deck is that we tried to keep the stylistics of the trumps and the court cards in that of the number cards. In the color scheme, we tried to be very close to the color scheme of the Tarot of Marseilles's original decks, because we wanted to keep the authenticity of the images from the 15th-18th centuries.
The deck is based on the interpretations given in the treatises of the best masters who worked by reading the Marseille Tarot. We, for one, want to present you a unique variant of recreating the values of the pip cards in the style of ancient engravings with explanations written in one of the oldest literary genres in the language of fables and parables.
What happens when you pick up a Tarot de Marseille of the New Incarnation deck? You probably flip through the cards one by one, expecting to see, following Trumps and the Court, the entanglements of Wands and Swords inherent in the number cards, as well as the patterned compositions of Cups and Coins. For hundreds of years, people have looked at the Major Arcana of Marseilles, peering into the large and expressive eyes of their characters, knowing what they wanted to tell. As for the Minor Arcana, they have hidden their stories from our eyes like some kind of cipher or secret seal. But apparently it’s time to voice and visualize the messages of the Minor Arcana, pull back the curtain on the scaffolding where their mise-en-scenes were played out.
When you take the deck in your hands, a small miracle will happen. You will see something extraordinary. For the first time in many centuries, a meeting of the prototypes of the Court and the Trumps with the phablets of the Minor Arcana will be held in a single stylistic, semantic and traditional space of the Tarot of Marseilles. The Minor Arcana will speak the same language as the rest of the deck, as if enduring a 500-year vow of silence and finally being given the opportunity to speak their minds.
Since all monitors are a little different in displaying the colors, they may vary in the end product.
