You'd think from the title that this should be relegated to the Non Tarot section, but no.

Created and illustrated by one Etienne de Gratti, this is a 22 card deck designed around the rather odd conceit of having buildings stand in for the basic symbolic themes of the major arcana. Some are pretty obvious (an impressive government building for the Emperor, a church for the Pope), but others are a bit more subtle.

It comes in a plastic case with a large fold-out spread sheet that also has printed on it what would no doubt have been the contents of the LWB, if it had a LWB, which it doesn't.

I haven't been able to find any info about it or de Gratti (apart from the suggestion that in the late 90s he may have published numerological predictions in the French magazine Femme Actuelle). According to the spread sheet, "L'Oracle des 22 Maisons est une évolution de TAROT-DISC" (whatever that means) and "L'Oracle des 22 Maisons est edité par Espace Laura" in Nimes.

Anyone ever encountered this or know anything else about it?
