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.

http://cards.old.no/1557-geofroy/ notes that the pips are from the Vigil Solis. Also:

Quote:
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
