I recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund our restoration of the Nicolas Conver Major Arcana. My team has spent the last year restoring the images and updating the design. The decks include the 22 Major Arcana, the Two of Pentacles, and an information card. They are also available in French and English. We've already received pre-production decks, and they have far surpassed our expectations!

The cards are a standard tarot size that measure 4.75" x 2.75". The images are printed on a medium weight 310gsm casino quality card stock and have a linen finish. We are working with Shuffled Ink and their stock feels similar to Bicycle Playing Cards. All decks come packaged with a 2" card stock wrap.

You can pre-order a marked version of our deck at the secret link below. It's listed as "1 Special Edition Deck". After you add it to the cart, you can add additional decks and gaffed cards. The gaffs include double facers, a double backer, and a blank.

Please let me know if you have questions! I can't wait to share these with you.

I have exciting news. Our tarot deck is already over 50% funded! We have also received a fantastic video review from mentalist Jonathan Pritchard.

Thank you everyone for backing our Indiegogo campaign! It was a huge success. We were well over 100% funded.

Our decks are now in stock and available on our website. They have been selling quite quickly and we only have a handful left. We also aren't sure when we will reprint.

You can see photos and purchase them here:

Let me know if you have questions.

Hi.

I appreciate if you could elaborate just a little bit more on the marking.
Like, how small the markings are, etc. As I have rather poor eye sight.

Thank you.

Also, there are two editions available: French and English. If the French edition is selected, does that mean both the cards and the instructions are in French or just the cards? Also, you posted photos of the French edition. If possible, please post some photos of the English edition.

Thank you.

Hello,

Great questions!

The marks are large and easy to read. We designed them to use on stage. I wear contacts and I can read them at an arms distance. Send us a message here or via our contact form, and we can share a photo of the design. We are not posting them online for obvious reasons.

There are no instructions with the deck. The marks are visible once you know what to look for and where to look. There is no math or obscure system.

You can see the English cards in David Parr's review. Also, you can also see the back design at the 4:30 mark. 👍

You can see a photo of the English cards here:

The English on the cards is a direct translation from the French:

The Fool
The Magician
The Popess
The Empress
The Emperor
The Pope
The Lover
The Chariot
Justice
The Hermit
The Wheel of Fortune
Strength
The Hanged Man
Unnamed
Temperance
The Devil
The House of God
The Star
The Moon
The Sun
Judgement
The World

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I ordered one deck in French and one in English. What are some good book and/or DVD sources for additional ideas and routines that use tarot cards?
Thank you.

William kindly showed me the back design, which I really liked. The marking was large enough for various performance environments.

I have ordered two sets and received them today.

The card stocks are finished not like most of Tarot decks, but more like Bee stock. I really like it. I think those cards are easy to handle and will last very long time. Sturdy but still flexible, if you will.

I recommend this product to anyone who use Tarot for their gigs.

I really hope they will produce full decks.

I have these in hand and couldn’t be happier. William responded immediately to my pre purchase questions which is always a plus in my book. The order arrived amazingly quickly as well. The cards are classic and clear on both front and back. If your eyes are less then perfect, but you function well with DMC‘s then you should be very comfortable with these. I also received a mini deck which is perfect for limited pocket space situations. In short, these are great and will complement any tarot collection. I plan on breaking these in and putting them to use. Absolutely recommend these and the price is more then fair imo.
Thx William
