|About this item
- The Lothrop Lenormand is designed for lovers of well-worn antique cards, and is a pastiche based around lithographs
- and antique prints. It’s available in two versions: a coloured version designed as vintage aquatints, and an uncoloured
- version designed as monochrome engravings.

2.76 x 4.72 in. = 7.00cm x 12.00cm
folding top box; a storage box not worthy of the deck.
For the price charged, this should be something more
substantial like a small sturdy magnetic lid box.
are larger than poker or bridge size, which I prefer.
They fit well into large hands but are not huge. The
presentation is antiqued with muted Victorian colors. I find
this visually calming and serene. The artist took some
liberties with the images but most are easily recognizable.
I had trouble with #24, heart, because it looks like
an upper torso cadaver; #27 because it looks like a
posted sign rather than a letter. The deck has a joker
which I do not know how to use.
The subject of each
card in no way competes with a busy background. If
anything, the artistic sty The card edges have a muted gold
gilding which makes for a very respectable presentation of
the cards. The card faces show the entire picture
with the traditional playing card insert small and in
the right upper corner and the card numbers in large
Roman numerals at upper left corner. Card stock is good
and has a snap to it.
The overall presentation of
this deck is, to me, consistant with how a Lenormand
deck should look. Nice artwork, background does not
compete with the theme which is easily recognizable.
Images are serene and invite introspection. The cards
feel good in the hand and are of sturdy stock. I
highly recommend this deck.
