French Master card maker Claude Burdel crafted this deck in 1751 according to the Marseilles model, but distinguished it with striking Swiss decorative accents. Burdel’s original deck is preserved in the Museum of Civilizations and the Mediterranean Sea in Marseilles. Each Limited Edition, hand-numbered deck is wrapped in a reproduction packing sheet.

Wilfried Houdouin is a professional graphic designer who has 
lived in Marseille, France since 2001. Fascinated by the Tarot of Marseilles 
since childhood, he has passionately pursued the study, practice and teaching 
of the historic deck for decades. He studied graphic arts in Paris at 
the end of the 80s, and trained in computer graphics in the mid 90s. In 2011 he created the Tarot of Marseilles Millennium Edition, and wrote The Sacred Code of the Tarot.

Yves Reynaud combines his work as a maritime inspector in Marseilles, France with a deep interest in esotericism, with Astrology, 
numerology and graphology. He fell in love with the Tarot of Marseille
in his youth. Since 2004, he has concentrated on the historic tarot decks, which he fervently collects. He has researched the iconography, genealogy and history of the Tarot of Marseilles, its engravers and master card makers.

Along with Wilfried Houdouin, he realized the importance of the 
initiatory and cultural legacy of the Tarot of Marseilles. Aware of the rarity of the preserved copies, together they decided to create Tarot of 
Marseilles Heritage, producing a brand new growing collection of 
facsimiles of the most beautiful historical Tarots of Marseilles, 
republished with utmost respect for the original editions.
