What is Tarot Artisanal
French artist, I got interested in Tarots and started to draw, paint and create my own cards from the Nicolas Conver Tarot de Marseille. Brush painted, these pictures were first sold as a wishing Hand Painted Card. Then I glued the cards with three layers, according to the xvıııth century techniques and created the Artisanal Editions. More recently, I print my tarots on a coated card using high quality printing methods and made the Classic Editions.



Note : this page is the only english page from Tarot Artisanal website. It is a brief presentation of Tarot Artisanal and has links that lead to the french pages. It also allows you to buy Tarot decks at eBay.

On this page, you will find these three main sections :

The Classic Editions,
The Artisanal Editions,
The Hand Painted cards.
Hight quality printing on a white coated card

Classic editions are printed with a black separation techniques, allowing to have a high precision drawing line. The colors, selected from a pantone palette brings back the spirit of the ancient tarots. These editions are also sold as pocket-size so you can cary them wherever you go.
