Where can I get the "Jeu de Nall" from Chelman's (GREAT) book 'Capricornian Tales'??

Thank you,

Where in the book do you see it? I have looked through it twice (again) and I don't see it.

Thanks! I spotted it now. Old eyes, you know.

I did a Google search on it and came up dry. The only references seemed to be to the Surnateum, which is Christan Chelman's web site.

Maybe Christian will tell us where to find it. There are some other really nice Grimaud packs out there. Some of them look very old.

Hi Bill!

Thank you anyway - I'll check the other decks you mentioned!

The decks have not been available for 20 years. But sometimes people accidentally find one in France. Nall is a wonderful American painter and lives in the south of France. Some years ago, I had the pleasure to meet him and do the routine with his own deck. Then, he did some kind of similar "reading" for me. And as a souvenir, he engraved the box that contains the deck.

You may also take a look at Piatnik’s decks. Some of them have the antique flavor:


Besides, Piatnik is one of the best card manufacturers in the world. Handling the cards is a pleasure.
