What is Tarot Artisanal
French artist, I create tarots cards with three different techniques : First, I Brushpaint single cards from the Nicolas Conver tarot, to create a wishing Hand Painted Card. Second, by printing and gluing cards with three layers, according to the xvıııth century techniques, I create 22 card decks known as the Artisanal Editions. And for the third technique, I print tarots on a white-coated card using high quality printing methods to get the Classic Editions. You may choose the one that you feel the best for you…


Note : this page is the only english page from Tarot Artisanal website. It is a brief overview of my creations and has links that lead to the french pages. It  allows you to buy Tarot decks at eBay, you can also get direct order with its creator, Igor Barzilai, by email.
