Jean Dodal Hand Screened
The 22 Dodal trumps are printed on two sheets of 320g. English-made Atlantis paper, bleach-free and guaranteed to yellow gently with age.
The black line is taken directly from the originals in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. There are no changes or additions.
The colours are extra-fine gouaches, the brushes hand-made of boar bristle.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, stencils were made of oiled cardboard. Often the colours were applied by children working by candlelight. The results of course were less than precise, and the stencils wore out rapidly. For our re-edition, the stencils have been painstakingly cut in zinc. The back (paper side) is constantly cleaned and greased to assure the most flawless possible result.
