Untold Tarot presents historic styles of reading little known in the modern era. It teaches traditional ways of reading used for pre-twentieth-century decks, drawing upon older cartomantic arts such as blending and pairing cards, reading lines, and following "line of sight" to piece together untold stories according to the direction in which the characters are facing. The book also includes a selection of card spreads drawn from traditional French and Italian sources, plus methods of reading cards based on the author's own extensive research.
Jean Dodal Tarot De Marseille restored by Pablo Robledo
Jean Dodal’s Tarot, from 1701, is believed to be the oldest, most complete Marseille Type I Tarot that survived to this day. For centuries, these magical images have captured the hearts and minds of Tarot enthusiasts. Their influence on the tarot lexicon, as we know it today, is paramount.
Records show that this deck was produced in Lyon, France from 1701
until 1715. Today, only two known copies remain: one in the French National Library, where this restoration is based; the other in the British Museum in London.
Pablo Robledo's considerable artistic talents, esoteric knowledge, and passion shine through in this extraordinary restoration. The result is a magical deck that captures the spirit and essence of the original deck. Every detail, including "ghost" images or artifacts that are intrinsic hallmarks of historic decks, is intentionally included. These subtleties create new layers for exploration and discoveries when working with the cards and are sure to delight Tarot collectors and readers alike.
A small booklet with an introduction to the deck with notes on the restoration process is included in the box.
