Reproduction of original woodcuts from the 18th century

Message from the Gallery

Tarot Classic - According to Claude Burdel

As for many other decks, The Tarot Classic according to Claude Burdel's woodcuts is not without controversies. It's origin is itself contested and there is another deck whose Italian publisher "Lo Scarabeo" claimed it as the true descendant of Burdel's woodcuts.


Though different, this one belongs to the Marseille tradition with obvious variations within its colors and figures.



As for all Tarot decks presented in the Arcanas Gallery, you can open several cards at once et move them around on your computer screen.

You can also see a commented version of this gallery where the arcanas are accompanied by their positive and negative attributes.
However, these few keywords do not reflect all the possible reading levels for each arcana and they do not offer a synthesis of their interconnectedness either. These commentaries do not take into consideration the variations that exist between the Tarot decks presented in the Arcanas Gallery. Those variations can bring the interpreter into various directions and sometime they could be radically different.

The images of the Tarot within the Gallery are here as a source of visual inspiration and for your information. If you wish, you can find on this page links that will provide you with practical information regarding where to buy some of these Tarot decks.
