Hi all – I have created a one of a kind Lenormand Deck and only 100 of them will be printed ever! They will be a complete surprise to you when you get them. All I will tell you about them is that they are up to date with the traditionalist views of the cards. And, you will love them! Here’s how you can get one –

Go Here and offer a donation to help me fund a trip that I want to take next year. It is a Magickal Tour of Ireland that will take me to all the magickal places of long ago, along with some of the most spiritual places on earth. I have never been out of the USA, and I am 35. I would be so happy if you could help make my dream a reality.

And in return – you will get a stunning new Lenormand Deck.

Sincerely, 

Bridgett

LeNewbie Lenormand, a learning & teaching tool

LeNewbie Lenormand, by Rootweaver

Lenormand has taken the card-reading world by storm. However, as more and more readers try their hand at this fascinating system of European fortune-telling, it becomes clear that it’s not as easy to learn as it first appears to be.

The system depends on traditional keyword meanings for each card, used in combination with one another to make accurate revelations. It is imperative that newcomers first learn these keywords before they can successfully start using the cards. In comes the LeNewbie Lenormand to the rescue; a deck designed with the beginner in mind.

Each of the images on the 36 cards that make up this deck are compiled of their relevant keywords, doing away with the immediate need to memorise the Lenormand keywords because they are right in front of the reader! Now anyone can read Lenormand.

30. LILY aThe brain works in a strange way. When the image becomes the words these words seem to somehow stick in the memory, without any effort. Thus killing two birds with one stone, the immediate ability to read Lenormand and the subtle manner in which one remembers keywords without really trying.

This is a limited edition deck, only 250 copies – signed and numbered. A powerful learning and teaching tool, a must-have for anyone interested in learning or teaching the fascinating Lenormand.

Do you think that seeing the keywords on each card, represented as an image would help you to learn or teach Lenormand? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

Vintage Lenormand, the Review

The Review

I’m sure that you already know Jera-Babylon Rootweaver (Andi Rootweaver)’s Vintage Lenormand. But maybe you have not noticed some of its key ingredients. This is a Western and yet Oriental Lenormand which makes you go beyond what conventional Lenormands would ever do. I love “oriental” styles, specially if they remind me of Japan. This deck has that. Both photography (Aileen Arnold from UK, Ryan Joffe from South Africa, Ray Theron and Russel White from Australia), colors and the final design make you enter into a different world when you read the cards. Honestly, this modern vintage style is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It looks so fresh, so new, and yet, so vintage that no one can resist its appeal.

The style is unique, and seems to have been achieved using Moku Hanga and photoshop, achieving a very oriental look, very Japanese look (which I personally love). Moku Hanga is an application (for Mac) which is based on the art of Japanese Woodblock printing.

One of my favorite cards is the Heart. It makes me think about Christmas and the type of garments you use to decorate your tree, or your walls. It also remembers me of those small details that young couples give to one another, like a small key holder. The bright strawberry color is not cheesy at all, instead, it keeps you calm and sound. Another of my favorite cards is the Fish. It remembers me so much of Japanese lakes and their fishes. Good memories that bring me back to a place that I love.

This deck has balanced colors, bright and vintage, that create the perfect atmosphere for a deck which is at the same time modern and vintage. A difficult balance to achieve, and yet it seems so natural in this deck. Plus, it has all the traditional Lenormand elements to read them comfortably if you want to use them.

The deck is perfect for both beginners and pros who wish to use a great deck with their clients, or with themselves for meditation. Meditating with this deck is just perfect. It both creates the paths to find what lies in nowadays present and yesterdays past. Again, compelling you to go beyond the normal Lenormand. This deck is strong. You can use it as much as you want. It is smooth and perfect for being shuffled. It is good printer studio’s printing and paper stock quality.

In short, this is a must-have deck. It comes with a cool kangaroo pouch and incense! (I love the pouch). You need this in your collection, seriously. You can buy it here.

The Art behind

As I said before, this deck has been made with Moku Hanga and Photoshop, with extremely good photographs. Aileen Arnold (UK), Ryan Joffe (South Africa, Ray Theron (Australia) and Russel While (Australia) are the photographers. All the digital artwork has been created by Andi Graf (Jera-Babylon Rootweaver).

This is not an easy result to get. If you take a closer look to the card you’ll notice the consistency of colors, outlines and fonts. Even the fonts remind you of the “orientalism” in the deck, mimicking Shodo (the art of writing Kanji with a brush). This means hours of work, not only selecting the photographs, but also working on the computer!

I like the vintage smooth colors which create a quiet atmosphere, which is key in readings. This is a “quiet” and yet “compelling” deck. It smooths the reader, and it shocks the reader. Why? Because of the combination of western and oriental styles. While the artwork is oriental, the photographs are obviously western, except, perhaps, the card of the Lady and the card of the fish, which depict a Chinese Lady and some Japanese fish.

Even though the artwork portraits a “traditional deck”, if you look closer to it you’ll find transgression in it. It depicts nowadays characters in a very compelling way: in a vintage way. Your brain is shocked by these contrasts all the time: western and oriental, vintage and new, traditional and transgressor. This is why the artwork is going to catch your attention from the very first beginning.

Every picture, every card is a poem, a small liaison between what at first sight seem contraries. This is a great “yin and yan” work. A masterpiece.
