The Mystical Kipper by Regula Elizabeth Fiechter and Urban Trosch: a card-by-card feature by Tarot Zamm.
The German system of fortune telling, which dates back over 100 years, has been given a vibrant new look with artwork by Urban Trösch, using an elaborate technique. Trösch painted the pictures on small wooden plates that were primed with chalk. This was followed by the multi-layered application of egg tempera colours. The result is a work of art with great luminous power.
What distinguishes the 36-card Kipper deck from Lenormand decks is the preponderance of cards depicting people. When the cards are laid out, we see many faces looking back at us, making this an ideal deck for questions concerning personal relationships.
Keywords on the cards and an informative 52-page booklet make the Mystical Kipper method easy to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars – Terrific and a wonderful addition
I absolutely adore this artists work and the marvelous symbiosis with the author. I bought this solely because of the fan I am of the Mystical Lenormand. I’ll buy anything by this artist and author. They make the best team of any card creation I have yet. While I love the small sets I would really like to see a large, oversized deck with this artwork or a book. The author is very good also and her descriptions are accurate and clear.
There is something a little awkward about how these sets are being marketed and described for the American market and I suspect this is why more people haven’t caught on to them. Regardless, I am really happy I found them. I could not be happier with every single thing about them….unless you are talking a second larger edition and/or full-colour gloss art book.
