Deck of Interest—Maybe Lenormand

How “Lenormand” do you want to be?

Edward honors traditional Lenormand with highly creative, updated versions of the original 36 cards and then adds 16 additional cards in order to end up with a 52-card playing card deck. The result meets the needs of those who do readings with standard playing card decks and those who are wedded to the Lenormand format.

Lenormand readers can forecast traditionally in the Lenormand style by using just the first 36 cards. Novices can do the same to get a sense of how Lenormand readings work. The more adventurous can throw caution to the wind and use the whole deck with its eclectic add-ons to see what the fates will say. While Lenormand is meant to be read with fairly literal meanings based on the cards and their placement, Edward’s dynamic, pint-sized illustrations make it hard to resist more free-wheeling interpretations.

The 72-page, full-color companion book in this beautifully-designed box set contains brief instructions for reading Lenormand, and for using Lenormand’s classic Grand Tableau spread. There is a full-page description with keywords for each card. Altogether it’s a wonderful gift for those who read, or want to read, Lenormand—or for those who want an interesting, arty deck to play solitaire with. SHOP FOR THE DECK
