Lenormand decks are one of the most popular forms of divination or oracle decks, They were first published in Germany in 1847 and are based on German playing card decks.
The NY Lenormand is a recreation of an historic Lenormand oracle in two versions: one with traditional playing card correlations and one with the equivalent Tarot cards. It is a recreation of The Mystic Cards of Fortune, a Lenormand oracle deck that was published by McLoughlin, in New York, in 1882. These cards were based on one of the oldest German Lenormand decks, the Hoffmann and Kroppenstedt cards, published in Berlin, in 1854. Each card was redrawn but followed the original closely with some changes. For example, the Ship card depicts an American brig flying the American Flag instead of a German ship.
The order includes two decks: the traditional one with playing card associations and the one with Tarot card associations. They each come in a linen drawstring bag.
