Tarot de Marseille - Jacques Vieville (Peterson Photo Reproduction)


Out of print. No expected return

From the original creator of the popular photo reproduction Noblet Tarot de Marseilles, comes a new version of a timeless classic.

The fascinating Viéville Tarot is one of the earliest surviving tarot decks. Immediately, one of its distinctive features is that it is much larger than the Noblet tarot deck.

At present, the only known copy is preserved in the Bibliothèque nationale de France, and dated circa 1650. Although closely related to the class of cards commonly known as the Tarot de Marseille (including the Conver tarot deck and the Noblet tarot deck), it has many interesting differences, not the least of which being its unnamed Major Arcana (leaving the potential meanings, names and correspondances of some cards potentially ambiguous), and its inverted version of LE PENDVE ("The Hanged Man" as commonly known in most tarot systems).


  • Full 78 card tarot deck: Includes 22 Trumps (Major Arcana) + 56 Minor Arcana (Staves, Cups, Coins, and Swords)
  • Size: 2.75" x 4.75" (70 × 120mm)
  • Card stock: Thick card stock (350 gsm) is durable, but still flexible and easy to shuffle and handle.
  • Comes with 2-piece rigid box consisting of base and lid.
  • NOTE: Like the original cards, the corners have been left square.
