Cartomancer Poker Deck is a completely unique, fully custom deck of cards. It was designed by Alain Benoit and printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

The inspiration behind this deck: Tarot; French cartomancy; transformation playing cards; analytical psychology; surrealism; symbolism; fingerprints; vintage prints and illustrations.

Beyond fully custom! EACH card tells a story with an original illustration made with vintage engravings and prints. The whole deck paints the landscape of our lives in a beautifully nostalgic style. The result is a thought-provoking synergy between significance and design. There is nothing like it out there.

The Cartomancer Poker Deck uses the existing structure of a standard deck of cards as a canvas for a new, instinctive divination system. ALL the cards feature universal archetypes and symbols making it a very instinctive tool for divination.

The themes for each suit are as follows:

Diamond: Sensation, perception with our senses, childhood and earth.
Spade: Thinking, becoming part of society, early adulthood and air.
Heart: Intuition, abundance and fertility, midlife and water.
Club: Feeling, knowing without reasoning, late adulthood and fire.

Attention to details:
  • As a tribute to the people who have gotten their hands dirty with ink creating the engravings featured in the deck, I have made the suit symbols with fingerprints. As a result, no suit symbol is ever repeated on the same card. For instance, the 10 of Diamonds has 10 different fingerprints!
  • The timeworn paper background of the front of each card is a section of a larger paper so that the background of each card is different (no annoying repeated markings anywhere). Of course, the backs are uniform for obvious reasons.
  • The meaning of each card is printed in the margin of the card in both English and French as a tribute to French Cartomancie.
The deck comes with a limited edition little white book, a 32 page black and white booklet the size of the box, containing an introduction to the deck, ideas for divination and keyword meanings for each card.
  • Originally funded by over 600 backers on Kickstarter, now available to you!
  • A truly unique deck, each card is illustrated with a different collage made with multiple vintage engravings and illustrations.
  • A new deck of cards for divination, it comes with a limited edition little white book.
  • A "must have" for any card collector!
