Noteworthy and influential tarot by 19th century occultist Gerard Encausse, a.k.a. Papus. The major arcana designs were rendered by Gabriel Goulinat, and originally published in Papus' landmark work, Le Tarot des Bohemiens. The designs of the minor arcana were based on the interpretations of the 18th century occultist Etteilla, and were later published along with Papus' major arcana illustrations in his book Le Tarot Divinatoire. The first publication of the Papus cards in deck form came in 1981, with Papus' designs modified and rerenderd by Oliver Stephane. The cards were subsequently republished by U.S. Games Systems in 1982.
