Where will you get the images you want to use ? You may need to explore permissions - I have no idea who owns them; the extant cards are in the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, and you might need to ask them to be able to use them. notes that the pips are from the Vigil Solis. Also:

The French Catelin Geoffroy deck of 1557 is the first block printed deck to survive. This high-quality deck has figures that are more animated and rounded than the usual stiff TdM woodcuts. The Trumps have standard numbering, and the imagery is similar to a standard Tarot de Marseilles deck, with some unique exceptions. The Tower shows two people caught in a storm, one of them playing the violin, while the Devil has a shovel over his shoulder. The pip cards are based on the German Virgil Solis deck of 1544 with suits of Lions, Monkey, Parrots and Peacocks.

I don't think the Geoffroy deck has been reprinted. (I note that you asked in another thread.) Someone who specialises in historical decks is the best person to ask - Yves Le Marseillais, for instance. http://tarot-de-marseille-heritage.c...ish/index.html
