The Dodali Tarot is available as a 100% handmade, hand-painted traditional full tarot deck (TSR005 a-b) and as a digital-print, limited edition deck (TSR 008) of seventy-eight cards plus three alternative cards (Page of Wands, Ace of Wands, Ace of Swords).
After an intensive two-year process of research and restoration, the Dodali Tarot joins the TSR family of historical tarot decks. It is the most accurate contemporary reproduction of the historical Tarot de Iean Dodal(i), made in Lyon c.1700. The Dodali Tarot by TSR celebrates the forgotten craftsmanship of traditional card making.
When you purchase the digital-print, limited edition of the Dodali Tarot, you will receive:
- A true-to-life version of the Dodali Tarot, achieved through a process of hand-stencilled colouring, high-definition scans, and digital recomposition, to recreate the exact colouring techniques used by master card maker Iean Dodali.
- Handmade packaging: the design of the envelope is derived from the traditional packaging used by 18th century cardmakers, and hand-painted in four colours.
- A high quality print on smooth, double-sided card stock, for exceptional finish and ease of shuffling. Printed locally, with love and expertise.
- A numbered, limited-edition copy. Signed on an additional card, and on the envelope.
When you purchase the hand-painted edition of the Dodali Tarot, you will receive:
- A completely handcrafted deck using the TSR signature, handmade lamination process: two printed sheets of paper, glued and pressed together. This process is the only way to recreate the texture and durability of an authentic, traditional playing card.
- A hand-painted, one-of-a-kind deck, featuring precise colour-matching, updated using contemporary pigments. The deck is painted according to the six-colour coding system assigned by master card maker Iean Dodali.
- A hand-cut deck: every single card in the Dodali hand-painted deck is cut by hand. This respects the slight natural distortion of each uncut sheet after the gluing process.
- The exclusive TSR Unicorn handmade coffret. This sturdy, hand-painted and handcrafted box is constructed from archival quality cardboard, to protect your Dodali deck.
