Enjoy !!

Yves Reynaud

Background of the deck:

When I met Ben GROSS four year ago, I offered him as a gift to choose one of my tarots published. He instantly retained the Jean Pierre PAYEN 1713.
Later he informed me that he decided to paint a restitution of this tarot as hand paintings.
Three years later he recontacted me and wanted me to publish his paintings* as a tarot under a Deluxe edition.

* The original paintings were made using vibrant ceramic paint and porcelain outliner on 78 canvas boards (original size 22 x 33 cm).

Ben J. GROSS is having a rather long love story with tarot representations.
As a historical tarot decks' s collectionner I am very enthusiast about the obtained result, transforming this PAYEN tarot in an explosion of colours, various athmosphers and very emotional little paintings.
This artistic creation "Tarot de Rivesaltes"** remains anyway a very practical tarot deck because all lines and colours reflects the ancien PAYEN deck.

Using an artist creation as an operative tool is a privilege that no doubt will satisfy all tarot amatores. Yves REYNAUD

** Ben J. GROSS lives, works and paint in Rivesaltes medieval city close to Perpignan in South France

Bonjour Michael,

I am also the producer and distributor of this tarot as you may see by following link I gave.

By publishing in your Forum I wanted also to informs passionates (as I am) about this just released edition.

Feel free to let this message here or eject it of your Forum of course.
May be you have a suggestion where to shift it ?

Is it enough as background ?

Salutations from Marseille City,

Yves Reynaud

Dear Yves

Your topic is fine where it is. What I meant was, I would appreciate some information as regards the background of the deck.

You are presenting a reproduction of a historical deck, therefore the countless readers of this forum @onion35@ would welcome some additional insight into its history. :icon_idea:

Or you could simply tell us what made you seek out this particular version of the TdM.
