The Lenormand has been immensely popular for over 150 years in Europe, especially in its native Germany and continental and Eastern Europe, and it has a huge following in Brazil. 

The Petit Lenormand is a method of reading rather than an actual deck. Specifically, it is a method of reading a stripped deck of Alemannic playing cards. Most commonly, this method is now employed with a special set of cards, which we refer to as Le Petit Jeu Lenormand. However, it can be done with an 'ordinary' playing card deck.

History of the Petit Lenormand

From the mid-19th century, several versions of the Petit Lenormand were produced, primarily in Germany and Belgium. These were exported wedely to both Scandinavian and Slavic countries. 

The 36 Lenormand cards are easy to read and understand and very suitable for beginners. The pictures speak a clear language so that everyone can get clear answers. They are ideal for future predictions. The Lenormand cards are not the same as the tarot in structure nor in their method of reading.

The Lenormand cards

The lenormand cards, technically the Petit Lenormand of thirty-six emages ranging from the Rider to the Cross, are a deck of cards originally designed as a parlour game but now used for divination and fortunetelling. Unlike thet Tarot, which originated in Italy, the Lenormand cards are a European and cosmopolitan child of Paris, France, and Nuremberg, Germany. The name of the cards derives from Mlle. Lenormand (1772 - 1843), a notable fortunetteller of Paris, and the images and deck derive - totally separately - from a card game designed by J.K. Hechtel (1771-1799) in Nuremberg, published in 1800.
