The Mystical Kipper is a very elegant deck of 36 fortune-telling cards, created by Regula Elizabeth Fiechter and the artist, Urban Trösch.
Slightly smaller than traditional card size, these Kipper cards depict scenes from a by-gone era. The origin of the cards is lost in the midst of time, perhaps the cards were named after Berliner, Mrs. Susanne Kipper, who lived at least one hundred years ago or perhaps they were used by the Wipper travelers. Whatever their origin, a period of wealth and beauty around the turn of the 19th/20th century is reflected in the artwork and in military, legal and agricultural matters. The cards are mainly figurative and
the artist Urban Trösch has created smooth, restful and delightful illustrations. The original designation of the card titles have been retained in this numbered deck, which can be best used for questions that relate to personal relationships. The use of one’s own intuition is needed to get the best from the reading.
The cards, however, do not depict all sweetness and light! Some cards highlight the more difficult aspects of life which are ever present for the unsuspecting. There are false persons, unhappiness, prison, bereavement, and other dangers. All 36 cards can be laid in an ‘All Cards’ spread, nine cards in four rows and the cards are read horizontally, diagonally and vertically.
This is a delightful deck, as is its companion, the Mystical Lenormand, by the same creators, Fiechter and Trösch. I like to use the Mystical Kipper cards alongside the Kipper Cards to create a 72-card combined deck. There is sufficient information in the little white booklet in the deck pack to get the beginner started.
