Philippe Camoin et la machine à imprimer à 4 couleurs

You will find in this section documents on the Camoin House and on Nicolas Conver, master cardmaker of Marseilles, who founded the Conver-Camoin factory in 1760, and also on the master cardmakers and their know-how, and various documents on early tarots and the history of Tarot.

Early Tarot Decks

The Marseilles Tarots

The François Tourcaty Tarot

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.
