Marseilles-Inspired Tarot Decks

Tarot decks that are inspired by the French traditional style of Marseilles decks.



Angel Tarot   

The Angel Tarot is a Marseilles-inspired deck of 78 cards created by a Japanese playing card company. The majors have been redrawn and slightly simplified (and given Rider-Waite style titles). The pips have been rearranged, and are a little more decorated than is traditional.





Astro Tarot   

The Astro Tarot, published by Art Fair Inc in 1970, has just 42 cards. It's major arcana and court cards (there are no numbered minor cards) have a central black and white Marseilles figure inset into light and dark yellow borders. Titled in French and English.





Beginner's Tarot   

The Beginner's Tarot is a packaged set for the tarot newcomer including an 80-page book and 78 pleasantly illustrated cards inspired by Tarot de Marseilles woodcuts as well as Rider-Waite imagery.





Brave New World Tarot   

The Brave New World Tarot is inspired by the Tarot de Marseille and modern city life, and is a 'direct deck for our brave new world'. The 22 major arcana cards are illustrated with linocuts in black and white. Available as single prints or as a 22 card deck.





Chat du Marseille Tarot   

The Chat du Marseilles Tarot is a trumps-only deck drawn in French style, based on the 1761 Conver Marseilles. It's quite traditional but for one thing - instead of humans, there are cats!





Corto Maltese Tarot   

The Corto Maltese Tarot is about a comic book character of the same name, by artist Hugo Pratt. Corto is an adventurer and sailor and the cards illustrate scenes, places and personalities that he encounters. The corresponding card in the Marseille style is also repeated in the four corners of the pale aqua border.





Dame Fortune's Wheel Tarot   

Dame Fortune's Wheel Tarot is a deck of 79 cards - 22 majors, 56 minors and one significator from author, Paul Huson. The cards are based on the Huson's research presented in Mystical Origins of the Tarot, and have Marseilles-inspired majors and Etteilla-inspired, fully illustrated minors. The deck is complete with an instructional booklet and now published by Lo Scarabeo.





Kilted Rubber Chicken Tarot   

The Kilted Rubber Chicken Tarot is an off-the-wall deck from Beth Seilonen. It has 78 cards with rubber chickens in a hand-drawn emulation of Marseille-style decks. Self-published in a very limited and sold out edition of 35 decks.





Le Millenaire Tarot de Marseilles   

Le Millenaire Tarot de Marseilles is a modern tribute to the Marseilles tradition, and specifically to Nicholas Conver and the Marteau and Grimaud decks. Chris always saw the Marseilles decks as being witty and subversive, and his deck reflects this - it 'follows the basic tradition but has enough deviations, omissions, additions and eccentricities to infuriate the purist!'





Major Tom's Tarot of Marseilles   

Major Tom's Tarot of Marseilles is a unique deck based primarily on the iconography of the Dodal Marseilles, but with a modern twist in dress and attitude. First printed in a limited edition of 50 decks during the 2005 Melbourne International Tarot Conference, it's now also being published by Schiffer Books.





Mexican Tarot   

The creator has used the Tarot de Marseilles as a reference for the Mexican Tarot. The atmospheric cards show local personalities of Mexico City, beautifully photographed in black and white.





Romanov's Dynasty Tarot   

The Romanov's Dynasty Tarot is an unpublished computer collage deck of 78 cards. The images are based largely on Russian historical art, surrounded by ornate borders, and inset with tiny copies of Marseilles cards.





Starter Tarot   

Rather obviously made for beginners, each card in the Starter Tarot has a list of associated keywords and concepts to aid in memorising the card meanings. The artwork is simple and pastel coloured, and is similar to the Marseilles deck art.





Symbolic Tarot   

The Symbolic Tarot is an iconographic interpretation of the Tarot Marsella (the Spanish variation of the Tarot de Marseille). The artwork is a mix of collage and digital design, with small Marsella images and Hebrew letters inset below the main central symbol.





Tarot de Boig   

Tarot de Boig (Tarot of the Fool in Catalan), is a set of 22 original artistic canvases by British figurative and symbolist painter, Ben J. Gross. While keeping its roots in the Tarot de Marseille, the art is also influenced by Dali, Bosch, Chagall, Bacon and others. Prints of the major arcana are available from the artist, and the minor arcana are in progress.





Tarot de la Rea   

Created by a French artist, the Tarot de la Rea resembles the Tarot de Marseilles with its wood-block images and plentiful use of blue and red. It was issued in two versions, "gold" and regular. Both use gold and silver ink on the cards, but the "gold" version has gilt edges.





Tarot de Marcelino   

The Tarot de Marcelino is a Marseilles-inspired deck in a very quirky and distinct style, from the 'Not-So-Master of Cutesy Cards' (otherwise known as Lynyrd Narciso). It's a full 78-card deck, but does have pips rather than illustrated minor arcana. It's printed in burgundy ink on unbleached paper, and has been published in a limited edition of 70 decks.





Watersprite Tarot   

The Watersprite Tarot has 79 entirely hand-painted watercolour cards, based on Marseille symbolism in the major arcana but with fully illustrated minors. The deck was an artistic journey created over more than ten years, and its images have a focus on symbology, colour, mood, and energy. Self-published and available direct from the artist.
