I began by looking for an antique playing card deck that I could use as the playing card inserts you see in historic Lenormand decks. I was searching specifically for a deck from the late 1800s or early 1900s. My search ended with a late 19th century Les Modes Godey Nasco Playing Card Co deck that I found at a flea market for $5.00!
Each of the original cards are handmade 8.5” X 12” collages upon which I applied various techniques to create its distressed appearance. Some of the elements didn't need to be aged, like the letter from the schoolgirl in the Letter card & the circa 1890's playing card inserts themselves! It took seven months to assemble the 36 cards, plus the extra Fox card. I love both & so included both in the pack. Pick the Fox you prefer to use in your readings & leave the other out.
