Ur- is a German word and means original, primal. Ur-Mensch are the first humans.

The images on the left are German card inserts. In German-speaking countries, playing cards are used with different suits from the well-known French spades etc: bells, acorns, leaves and hearts. The court cards are different, too, there is no Queen, and Deuces take the place of the Ace.

I love this deck very much and even used it to play with my niece the way intended in the late 18th century!

I wonder why the Piatnik is not available on Book Depository ? I have always purchased my German (and Austrian) decks fm them, as the prices were always between 5 and 7 dollars US. hmmmm

I have quite a few Lenormand decks, and they are all favorites, but since Alone's Vision and Alyzen's Moonshadow have not been mentioned here, I will vote for these--one trad and one modern. Both of them very simple and uncluttered but beautifully colored and designed imo. And both now have the extra Man/Woman cards which I think is a great innovation that many other decks now also include, keeping the other cards in play (ie Snake, Rider).

This is the one I have. It's a very straightforward deck, no frills. The only card that ever makes me look twice is the Clouds, since the eye immediately focuses on the ship in the foreground.

Magick Lenormand by Beth Seilonen.

I love it for the colors and the simplicity- the picture takes the page and I really appreciate that in a Lenormand deck.

I quickly tired of the verses and large card inserts. I really could do without either in them- or even the names of the cards for that matter.

I would love the original Pixie for the same reasons- I lust over a friend's all the time. Sadly- cannot find it.

Currently using The Unforgettable Lenormand, but actually all of Terri Smith's Lenormand decks are beautiful, and it was hard to choose one. Maybe I 'need' the Whisper next:

For a fun feel, I've also got Lynn Boyle's Vintage Photographic B&W and Rosie decks:

Oh yes that's the one! duhh I guess I made the mistake of typing Piatnik in the search bar. I have always called it by its publishers name. Nice to see that it's still avaiable and on sale too! lol
