The shop I gave you the link to, seems serious and I think a Dodal from them would be faithful. They claim they make their reproductions from the original deck that is kept in the Bibliothèque Nationale (BN), so they seem serious enough. They also have Viéville and Noblet. They offer either decks of 78 cards or 22 Trumps, and for the 22 Trumps they have several options : a cheaper option industrial print, a more luxurious option colored by hand, either cut into cards or uncut on large paper leaf (sorry if my english is not precise here, but you will see what I mean if you visit the store)
Their site also have lots of info and interesting stuff, and appreciate the fact that they relate some of the historics and legends about tarot while always being clear what is historically attested with factual elements, and what is not, and therefore only of the domain of whishfull thinking.

I have never ordered from them, so I cannot really vouch from them ; only that I am very much wishing to get a Dodal reproduction one day for myslef, and I will probably get it from them if and when that day arrives, because I have been eyeing this boutique for a long time now.

If someone has ordered from them, I would love to hear feedback.
Thank you !

I'm not a fan of the artwork on the cards at that store for the decks you have mentioned. My preference is to get a deck that is more close to the crude original deck. I will try my luck with the Game of Hope website.

Thank you for your reply!
