Hello Kickstarters, my name is Alain Benoit and I am exploring some of these symbols with the Cartomancer Poker Deck.
The inspiration behind my project.Tarot; French cartomancy; transformation deck; analytical psychology; art; surrealism; symbolism; fingerprints; vintage prints; and illustrations (to name only a few.)
Why is this deck unique?Each card tells a story. The whole deck paints the landscape of our lives with vintage engravings and prints—the ideal synergy between significance and design in a pack of cards. There is nothing like it out there—that’s why I’m doing it!
Cartomancy, divination?Yes, of course! The Catomancer Poker Deck uses the existing structure of a standard deck of cards as a canvas for a new insightful cartomancy system. ALL the cards feature universal archetypes and symbols making it a very instinctive tool for divination. But if you're not into this, you will still enjoy the deck for its beauty and uniqueness.
My dream will come true!When funded, each deck will be printed with the highest quality by theUnited States Playing Card Company. For me, the creation of this deck is THE quest to create playing cards I could see only in my dreams.

  • 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.

As a tribute to the people who have gotten their hands dirty with ink creating the engravings featured in the deck, I have made thesuit 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!
<figure></figure>
Thetimeworn paper backgroundof 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.
<figure></figure>
Themeaning of each cardis printed in the margin of the card in both English and French as a tribute to FrenchCartomancie.
<figure></figure>
The deck containshundreds of engravings, sometimes as many as five different designs in the same card. There is always something new to discover every time you look at them.

  • Red JokerUnconsciousness: our deepest level of consciousness, a pool of desires, dreams, spirituality and emotions.
  • Black JokerConsciousness: our individual awareness of the world: sensation, thinking, intuition and feeling.

The ornaments on the tuck box and on the back of the cards are old foundry ornaments used inearly printing.
