Gringonneur on a playing card


Yes, the deck uses mostly "traditional names", but with rather modern paintings.

I guess, the risk exists, that Alexander might have an error about the age, but it looks promising.


It's on the site.

Generally, he was the oldest French card-maker known, I guess, so just by this famous enough. It mustn't have been the Tarot story, that brought him to be pictured at this deck.

Ross' article to Gringonneur is at (see bottom of menu)


I enjoyed the article

Beautiful reproductions will be released sometime in 2004 of the "Charles VI" date yet...(Lo Scarabeo thread in tarot decks).

I am eagerly waiting.
