The Dutch Card House Company introduces you with pride to our new brand Secret Tale Playing Cards. A new series of fully custom luxury playing cards with stories about legends that have never been told before.
We are all familiar with the Arthurian Legend of the young son of King Uther Pendragon, raised and educated by the sorcerer Merlin, who ascends to the throne of Great Britain after drawing the magical sword, Excalibur, from a sacred stone. But what if there was another story-a secret story-that told even more about Arthur’s fate?
That is the story the deck explores. The absolutely fascinating storyline and concept idea by Jannieke van Geet and beautiful narrative by Elizabeth Romeril. The deck showcases old folk art combined with antique colors from the Middle Ages making these decks of cards the perfect stage for the Secret Tale of King Arthur: ‘Merlins Confession’. The artwork is detailed with a clean modern design on the back, faces, and tuck case.
Originally offered by Spicy Pickle Creative as a KickStarter project in June 2014, with a failed relaunch shortly after, the rights and artwork were purchased by Albino Dragon. After 2 years of deliberation and almost being abandoned, it was finally successful in June 1016 with 272 backers who pledged $7,857. It was also offered in uncut form.
The Christian Lacroix Maison De Jeu playing cards set features art depicting the atmosphere of vintage French gambling houses.

You will see something new each time you look at these cards. The playing card set includes two decks of 52 cards plus two jokers packaged in a decorative keepsake box with a chevron ribbon pull tab. The outer box measures 4.25” x 6” and the deck box measures 2.5” x 4”.

Taking inspiration from the archetypes of the original tarot decks like the Rider-Waite, The Essential Tarot reimagines them for a new age: powerful, diverse, and full of contemporary wisdom.
As depicted by many artists and authors throughout the ages, tarot has become an effective way to understand yourself and others—and perhaps even look into the future. But a new audience for tarot is being born, and its adherents want a new way to see the world: fresh, contemporary, and full of diverse bodies, races, and genders, acknowledging the spiritual and cultural offerings of people around the globe and throughout history. These practitioners need an essential deck that both honors the tradition of tarot that has given power to readers for generations and also gives them insight and hope for the generations to come.
