Cartomancer Shadow Playing Cards by Alain Benoit
After almost 4 years Alain Benoit from Cartomancer Playing Cards introduced the new Cartomancer Duality series.
The Duality Cartomancer cards consist of two fully customized packs that together make a set and complement each other like the sun and moon.
These two decks are Clarity and Shadow.
This Variant is the Cartomancer Shadow Edition Playing Cards which depicts that night has fallen on all the Cartomancer cards. Each card features a mirror image of the Clarity Deck illustration yet is set on a dark gray background. Look close enough, and you'll notice the shadow cards concealing differences rich in symbolism. That's why it’s considered the deck of dreams and secrets.
The decks are designed as semi-transformation playing cards and have a divination theme. The Cartomancer decks use the existing structure of a standard pack of cards as a canvas for a new instinctive cartomancy system. ALL the cards feature universal archetypes and symbols making it a very instinctive tool for divination.
Each deck comes with a hand tied white book by Alain himself.
The 32-page black and white illustrated booklet the size of the box, containing an introduction to the deck, ideas for divination and keyword meanings for each card.
The decks are standard poker-size, printed by the United States Playing Card Company on Casino Quality Bee stock with embossed air-cushion finish.
