French Cartomancy Lenormand
And it is this deck that most harmoniously conveys the vintage style of Mademoiselle Lenormand's cards without unnecessary embellishments and graphic excesses.
Here, the cards depict the very images that Rana George uses in her book. Rana got this deck when she was still a child. And these cards have been with her for thirty years. Rana George has written one of the most fascinating books about Lenormand cards in case you don't know. You can find this book on Amazon here.
This is a simple and elegant deck. There is nothing superfluous here, only classic images. But they are very accurate and clear. Each image on the cards looks like a beautiful painting. The vintage color scheme gives the impression that you are communicating with a really old deck. This edition is based on fortune-telling cards released in Germany by the publishing house of Bernard Dondorf since 1873.
This deck is perfect for beginners. In my opinion, this is really the best traditional Lenormand deck.
The Game of Hope, The Primal Lenormand
This deck can also be easily used for divination, as it fully corresponds to the structure and symbolism of traditional Lenormand decks.
The deck is beautifully crafted and reproduces old cards realistically. The original of this deck is now in the British Museum.
The deck was created in collaboration with the famous medium Regula Elizabeth Fiechter and the artist Urban Trosch.
The special uniqueness of this deck is added by the drawing technique, which was used by medieval artists. This is a drawing in egg tempera on wooden boards covered with chalk. That is why these cards look so unusual and picturesque.
Pixie's Astounding Lenormand
All the main elements and symbols of this deck are taken from the RWS tarot deck, or from other drawings by Pamela Colman Smith.
The cards are drawn very stylishly and neatly, they are very cute and lovely. It's as if they were really created by Pixie herself. It is very interesting to look at them and find elements familiar to us from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck.
The cards are small in size (which is typical for Lenormand cards) and are sold in a delicious tin box.
Under Roses Lenormand
The deck is perfect for beginners since the background of each card has faintly distinguishable keywords that explain the divination meaning. This makes the cards easier to understand without spoiling their appearance.
The card design is very stylish and elegant. There are a lot of vignettes, sepia, and spots imitating antiquity used here. The characters are dressed in historical costumes, but they look quite modern. The image of a red rose, which is often found on cards, symbolizes mysteries and secrets. And the cards perfectly convey this mood of mystery.
Dreaming Way Lenormand
This is a light and modern deck and each card in it is a bright colorful image. Here there are quite bold and unusual interpretations of the classic Lenormand cards. But they are filled with serious meaning, psychology, and interesting associations.
Also very important is the role of Lynn Araujo, who wrote very capacious and informative interpretations for each card.
This deck looks like pictorial postcards set, they are very positive and inspiring.
