Limited edition of 3000 copies of a Tarot said “of Marseille” originaly produced in Solothurn, Switzerland, in 1718, by François Heri, master card maker and engraver in Solothurn, Switzerland. In the 18th century, the “golden century” of the Tarot in Europe, the canton of Solothurn was, together with the canton of Fribourg, the biggest foyer of production of Tarots in Germanic Switzerland. Reproduction of the copy preserved in the Swiss National Museum of Zurich.

Following the standards set by his French colleagues, Swiss Master card maker François Heri engraved several tarot decks in the Swiss city of Solothurn. This 1718 deck has outstanding historic value because of the unusually well preserved integrity of the icons, giving the cards their unique character. The reissue of this important deck was realized in partnership with the Historical Museum Blumenstein in Solothurn, Switzerland.

Each Limited Edition deck is hand-numbered. Wilfried Houdouin is a professional graphic designer who has 
lived in Marseille, France since 2001. Fascinated by the Tarot of Marseilles 
since childhood, he has passionately pursued the study, practice and teaching of the historic deck for decades. He studied graphic arts in Paris at 
the end of the 80s, and trained in computer graphics in the mid 90s. In 2011 he created the Tarot of Marseilles Millennium Edition, and wrote The Sacred Code of the Tarot.
