The Russian Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards

by Svetlana Alexandrovna Touchkoff

The Russian Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards
Price: $35.00
Number of cards in deck: 25. The book lists 50 images, each card shows four quarter images.

Measurements: Square: 4 inches, or 100 mm

Back of card:Black, with squarish gold line decoration.

Book included: Yes, 182 pages, 5.7 x 8.5 inches, or 14.5 cm x 21.7 cm, hardcover. Nicely printed, enameled paper, but only small black & white illustrations. Instructions are good.

Publisher: HarperSanFrancisco. Printed in Hong Kong.

Comments: Not a tarot deck, of course. To use, deal the cards out in rows. Note that the pictures all run off the edges of the cards, and that each card has a big X running corner to corner.

Look and see if any adjoining cards can be rotated to complete a picture. In the illustration above, we purposely aligned all the cards to give you the idea. Then see if the picture is right-side up, upside down or leaning to the left or right.

In the cards illustrated above, notice the hands & dog are right-side up, while the two birds & the sun are sideways. The book gives descriptions of each picture in all four positions.

A most interesting deck.
