A simplistic deck, much resembling Conver. As its name indicates, the Master Cartier was a woman, something original in a world where almost all the names appearing on decks of cards are the names of men.
The deck of François Tourcaty is a very interesting deck. But the great majority of the Secret Codes that Philippe Camoin discovered in the Tarot are missing here. One still senses nevertheless the work of an enlightened master cartier as was Nicolas Conver.
Le Tarot de Marseille de Nicolas Conver est le plus célèbre et le plus respecté des jeux anciens de Tarot de Marseille. Il date de 1760. A cette époque, Nicolas Conver fonde la fabrique Conver qui devient plus tard la Maison Camoin par le mariage de Jean-Baptiste Camoin avec une des héritières de la Maison Conver.
