Design and Artwork
The Jean Noblet Tarot, revered as the oldest known Tarot de Marseille deck, dating back to 1650 Paris, has been faithfully reproduced with restored colors, clarified details, and expanded borders. This meticulous restoration brings new life to the 78 original cards, blending historical authenticity with modern elegance.
The restoration involved redrawing and recoloring the images to clarify details and ensure consistency. Notably, the missing cards from the 6 – 10 of Swords were reconstructed based on contemporary decks. This approach was chosen to create a deck that, while not an exact replica, resonates with the modern reader through its refined and imaginative design.
Printed on premium 310gsm card stock with a durable linen finish, this deck ensures ease of shuffling and spreading. Its sturdy and elegant tuck box, featuring the card back design, adds to the deck’s charm and appeal. The deck’s main content is in French, with extra cards in English, catering to a diverse audience.
