THE Facsimile of François CHOSSON tarot soon available

Marseilles September 02nd, 2012

Some already know it: Facsimile of the unique copy known for the tarot of François CHOSSON cardmaster and engraver in Marseilles in 1736 is announced for this autumn.

Some more of patience and you can finally possess your own copy numbered by this limited edition to 3000 copies.
This rather mysterious cardmaster when in its origin and its filiation, left us as a mark of its art an "undated" tarot or rather badly dated what allowed many suppositions including the most unrealistic.

When this tarot will be in your hands, I propose that we open a thread of discussion dedicated to confront our opinions, seen and hypotheses.
Indeed, while seeing cards closely one can be made a clearer idea of its period, its style and of presumed date regarding his printing.

This facsimile will be realized in the same spirit as the tarot of Pierre Madenié I did:
Same telescopic solid box.
Paper 400 gr satiny finish
Wrapper from this cardmaker with its two beautiful gryphons.
Two additional cards of presentation French/English.
3000 games only in limited edition and numbered.

Since CONVER, it is the first time a tarot really made in Marseilles is reproduced. Duly noted...

If you are interested, send me an e-mail and I shall keep your or your copies.
It is careful to keep a non used deck for your collection and a deck of use.

2012 Year of the Dragon will also be the year of.... Gryphons!

Hi Debra,

It's because the image was so large. I reset the settings so that if an embedded attachment is over 600 pixels wide or tall, it will show as a link instead. Now I see a link to the file instead of the huge thumbnail.
