By kind permission of the British Museum, London, edited by Alexander Glueck. The game was conceived by Johann Kaspar Hechtel and published in Nuremberg in 1799 as a parlour game. This is where we meet all the characters seen later in the Lenormand cards: the rider, the stork, the mice, the fish, etc. The booklet includes the historic game rules and instructions how to read this oracle today.
The atmosphere of the early Lenormand-cards – an invitation to a very special experience.
36 historical cards in their original format (44 x 75 mm),

The accompanying booklet by Alexander Glück draws a fascinating line from the primordial cards to todays application of them.
