Holy crap. Absolutely fabulous (not the TV show, though that's lovely, too). I love the Hegel, Freud, and Sade cards.
beautifully elegant line work. What a time to have lived in... great back story on this one. where did you get these?
Nice cards and intertesting story behind them. Great stuff!
What does it signify when Sade is overlaid with Freud? Thanks for posting these wonderful energy carrying images.
Interesting! thanks for sharing, very cool cards.
Thanks for your comments. I found these in Passeron book, which has some not-as-well-known images mixed in with the famous ones.ShigePekin just alerted me that he featured these back in Sept. 2009. So go here to see more.
I purchased these cards in paris in 1994 in a small book/print/card shop in face of cathedrale de st. germaine (directly across the boulevard behind the bus stop). the shop is still there but I forget the name, tons of treasures there and worth the trip!
i would love to have a set of cards like those. and you can preview a Musée de Marseille publication that deals with the cards here: http://books.google.ca/books?id=htGLmO-SH0MC&printsec=frontcover&dq=%22le+jeu+de+marseille%22&source=bl&ots=TJP5f6Mcv1&sig=jGUt0dZ-7hFD_mzrVuEr0muwCHk&hl=en&ei=ClCOS82NJsP6lgeQjqSeDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CBoQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=&f=false
