The mamluk card pattern is the link between Chinese money cards and European cards. The finest example of this pattern, called the Topkapi deck (after the Museum in Istanbul) or "Muluk Wannuwab" dates from ca 1500.

I have been (occasionally) working on a modern reconstruction of this incomplete deck for almost five years. Now the design is finally complete and I am looking into printing options.

There is a website: http://mamluk.spiorad.net ,
a facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/Trzes-art-792312557637618/
and an old thread on ATF about it: https://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=205351

A kickstarter campaign is planned for September 2018.

If you want to get news about the printing process and the kickstarter campaign you can send an email to trzes at spiorad dot net, and I will add you to my mailing list.

Congratulations on finishing, trzes. Beautiful and exacting work - a real labour of love.

Pen, thanks again for your nice comment, also on this much quieter place, as it seems to be now.

I wish it wasn't quite so quiet... I miss the old days.
