This modern deck of playing cards looks like it has been locked up for nearly a century, waiting for someone to come along and rediscover it. The intricate casing has aged beautifully as the tuck has yellowed but the red has kept its vibrant color through the years. This deck of playing cards is printed by Bicycle and produced by Collectable Playing Cards. The Bicycle Vintage Playing Cards is ©Bicycle Cards.

What Does The Deck Say” is a weekday series of 3 card pulls from a cartomancy deck. No context or query is given to frame what the cards say as the posts are reading samples and not personal instruction. The result is sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, and usually surprising. All readers are invited to leave a comment about what they perceive in the random spread as each person will interact with the cards in their own way.

Personalized, direct, and private cartomancy readings are available via Ko-Fi: Noxporium.
