Nastasya Russian-Style Lenormand

IMG_0500

The Nastasya Lenormand, known by playing card historians as the Lenormand 1894,  is a reproduction of a Russian deck published in 1894.  It’s certainly not a typical Lenormand deck, though it features 36 cards; though many of the familiar symbols are present there’s also fun new faces like the Rooster, Lobster, and Cat.  Its inserts are also a bit of a mystery: though some clearly represent playing cards, like the joker on the Rider, there are also astrological symbols and even a few oddities like a wheat plant and a little bell.  This is a must for anyone interested in the evolution of the Lenormand symbol-set!  The deck comes in a traditional bridge size, and also with a storage box.  It is available for purchase on my new site, Indie Oracles.  What a wonderful piece of cartomantic history!
