Cartomancer Poker Deck is a completely unique, fully custom deck of cards. It was designed by Alain Benoit and printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

The inspiration behind this deck: Tarot; French cartomancy; transformation playing cards; analytical psychology; surrealism; symbolism; fingerprints; vintage prints and illustrations.

Beyond fully custom! EACH card tells a story with an original illustration made with vintage engravings and prints. The whole deck paints the landscape of our lives in a beautifully nostalgic style. The result is a thought-provoking synergy between significance and design. There is nothing like it out there.

The Cartomancer Poker Deck uses the existing structure of a standard deck of cards as a canvas for a new, instinctive divination system. ALL the cards feature universal archetypes and symbols making it a very instinctive tool for divination.

The themes for each suit are as follows:

Diamond: Sensation, perception with our senses, childhood and earth.
Spade: Thinking, becoming part of society, early adulthood and air.
Heart: Intuition, abundance and fertility, midlife and water.
Club: Feeling, knowing without reasoning, late adulthood and fire.

Attention to details:

  • As a tribute to the people who have gotten their hands dirty with ink creating the engravings featured in the deck, I have made the suit symbols with fingerprints. As a result, no suit symbol is ever repeated on the same card. For instance, the 10 of Diamonds has 10 different fingerprints!
  • The timeworn paper background of the front of each card is a section of a larger paper so that the background of each card is different (no annoying repeated markings anywhere). Of course, the backs are uniform for obvious reasons.
  • The meaning of each card is printed in the margin of the card in both English and French as a tribute to French Cartomancie.
The deck comes with a limited edition little white book, a 32 page black and white booklet the size of the box, containing an introduction to the deck, ideas for divination and keyword meanings for each card.
  • Originally funded by over 600 backers on Kickstarter, now available to you!
  • A truly unique deck, each card is illustrated with a different collage made with multiple vintage engravings and illustrations.
  • A new deck of cards for divination, it comes with a limited edition little white book.
  • A "must have" for any card collector!

When I first saw these cards online I knew I wanted to use them on my cartomancy YouTube channel, The Gypsy Mermacorn. I wasn't dissapointed! This deck has become my 'go to' for live readings on my channel. The cards are easy to manipulate, smooth but with a nice grip, and clients comment on the beauty of the deck. I'm especially appreciative of the intuitive ease of reading - there's almost no learning curve. Just take them from the box and start casting spreads. Use the booklet guide to drill deeper into card meanings. Love this deck!

I don't normally review anything, but these cards are fabulous. I'll be using them for Cartomancy rather than Magic. If you're a magician, the extra cards can be used as Gaffs.

The designs are gorgeously unique and the booklet will explain how to divine answers from the cards, if you aren't sure. The meanings are a mixture of Cartomancy, Tarot, and Lenormand.

A good addition to any card collection.
