The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus

In 1994 a researcher working in the Italian National Library in Rome discovered a manuscript containing 80 mysterious paintings, believed to have been devised by the mysterious prophet Michael de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus. The manuscript, never published in his lifetime, was handed down to his son who later presented it to Pope Urban VIII. After that it remained forgotten and neglected.

A brief glance at these extraordinary images shows how heavily they draw on the symbolism of Tarot. It is the belief of Tarot experts, Matthews and Kinghan, that Nostradamus was designing his own set of cards, drawing upon the visionary insights gleaned from his prophetic writings and visions. Now this Tarot has been brought to fruition by two modern experts and its secrets revealed for the first time.

Visionary artist Wil Kinghan and New York Times best-selling author and longtime student of Tarot, John Matthews have devised a deck which incorporates Nostradamus’ own images, fully updated to make what will surely be judged one of the most important decks of this age.

  1. This is different This is a lovely book and deck set, the box is incredible sturdy as are the cards. The book comes in handy because the artwork based on the 1500′s may be a little to a lot harder to interpret them as you would Rider Waite. I love the images in particular the magician, a mans head with a dragons body wow! With all the major arcana there is the interpretation and also added and extract of poetic lines(couplet) from Nostradamus translated into English with prophetic reference, which I found fascinating. An example is the Death card and the extract refers to the rise of Adolf Hitler. The book is 160 pages long with good descriptions of the cards as well a picture of the card, so no getting lost. There are also some tarot spreads at the end of the book. I like this book and admire the authors for their hard work, I can imagine translating from Latin and cryptic artwork was no easy feat. Thank you

  2. really cool deck II love this deck. Why? Here’s why. First, mo pips. Second, the artwork is borderline alchemical, but not overwhelming incryptic; very pure simple symbolism. 3 The artwork itself is not outstanding, but given it was done by nostradamus brother, it has a real sense of reality. 4 the cards themselves are a good size, print quality is very good, the card stock is heavy. 5 the book is very well written, mine was all English, a good size, not miniature.6 I hate buying stuff from mainland China cause I know the workers there are getting screwed, but the price is way low. Outstanding deck
