From 1760 to 1971, the history of the Camoin family parallelled the final saga of the Master Cartiers of Marseilles. In the 18th century, Nicolas Conver appeared in the city’s circle of card manufacturers . The then-flourishing industry began to decline in the 19th century. Only two card-masters survived, one of whom was Jean Baptiste Camoin, successor to Conver in 1861.
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.
