The Jean Noblet by Flornoy is small but extremely sturdy! It's also rather lovely.

I'm not sure whether you will get it on Amazon.

Flornoy sells them from his online store - letarot.com - and there are various bookshops worldwide that sell it - mostly in France but I got mine from Treadwell's in London. I dont know where you are based but there are two in NYC.

Size is approx 2.5 X 4.0 inches so smaller than many decks but that is part of its charm and it is super readable at that size.

Yves Reynaud and Wilfreid Houdouin also make wonderful Marseille decks on thick cardstock but the cards are larger. Not too large I'd say. I have the Madenie and it's superb.

The Hadar TdM has thick card stock. Here is a picture of it stacked up against the recent US Games CBD; the stack is almost 1/4" higher. Be aware that the color palette is a little more "lively" than traditional decks.

Do you happen to know if your Hadar is 1st or 2nd edition? I don't remember how to tell off the top of my head, but I've heard there are significant production differences between the two.

Since I don't read French well, it's hard to say. The 2 of Coins says "1181" and "1996" on it, and the box says "Editions de Mortagne;" the LWB was printed in French in Quebec, Canada. As far as I can tell, the production values are superior.
