14.11.2014 NEW CATALOGUE

SURPRISE!

It is the first time that Cartorama publishes a Christmas catalogue. It is now being printed and will soon reach you. The idea came up while browsing through our stock. Indeed, we did find advertising decks referring to Christmas, which truly needed to be shifted into focus at long last. When, if not now? And because it fitted together well, we have added nice playing cards on the passage of the seasons. What else can you find in our Christmas catalogue? A rare tarot pack with fables, published by Thieme, Leipzig. Decks by James Hodges. A pack from Stralsund with motifs from the former Dutch colonies Java and Sumatra. And gaming counters in silver. The right reading matter for long winter evenings. We wish you much fun while leafing through our „picture book“!

03.09.2014 NEW CATALOGUE

Antelopes and bisons, elephants and monkeys, yes, even germs… Our catalogue 55, which will soon be mailed, just teems with animals. Wonderful decks with a chuckle, among them an extremely rare animal tarot. Our offer also covers historical board games, so for example from the time of World War I. As we think they are so thrilling, we present postcards this time. Study the text, and you will wonder. One of the postcards even gives a hint at the producer of forbidden playing cards. 

And much more: Fröhlichs Patented Card, decks by Backofen, Fetscher, Cartas Indianas, translucent, artists' cards… 

We wish you much fun and serendipity. 
Jean Darquenne

78 pages with more than 350 entries plus some books. All are illustrated in color and described in English (the German text is available on request). Its price has remained the same: 20 Euro for any destination outside Germany.

23.05.2014 NEWSLETTER 04/2014

It is no mistake that our Newsletter No. 4 comes out now, in May. For Cartorama's spring catalogue was published in April. After the thrill, head free, we can focus again on anecdotes and worth knowing bits from the fascinating world of playing cards. This time, we'd like to place special emphasis on something unusual, two slim and notably high glasses. They are so-called „Passgläser“, some kind of beakers, bearing witness of past convivial drinking rituals.

ITS FEATURES: on 82 pages almost 400 decks with many highlights from various collections and related books. All objects are illustrated and described in English.


27.03.2014 NEW CATALOGUE

Coming soon!
Our new fixed-price catalogue – ALL IN COLOR – will soon be ready: it will be mailed next week.
In parallel it will also be available on our website.

The features of our spring catalogue 2014:
Our spring catalogue no. 54 starts with an unusual core theme that we had not yet addressed: Black Africa.
We present on three pages decks that either come from Africa itself or from the rest of the world, Europe, the USA and Russia, and take a look from the exterior at the “Black Continent”, occasionally with a definite politcal message.
Besides: modern advertising decks including the first half of a Hodges collection. That French man with an English patronym has staged a number of theater, opera and TV productions, he has illustrated books and – here is our point – advertising decks which bear his unmistakable signature.
Last but not least: Skat tournament cards combining the French and the German suit-signs, among them the Bolzani deck that we had introduced in our recent newsletter. And the German Bomb Card. Plus the output which we believe to be complete of Costante Costantini. All of this and much else is what you can find on the 82 pages of our catalogue no. 54.
