"Jeu de Tarot"

Jeu de tarot- 78c

Another version of the french tarot, somtims called the " Bourgeois Tarot"  or "tarot nouveau "
It was very probably intended for the lower end of the market, ( it is printed on a lower quality of card), The fact that I found it in a paris supermarket is evdience enough for the popularity of the game in france.
compare http://anthonylesq.blogspot.com/2012/02/french-tarot-grimand-part-i.html
and  http://anthonylesq.blogspot.com/2012/02/french-tarot-grimand-part-ii.html for a deck by Grimaud.      
Note the fact that the maker's name is printed on the ace of spades. Normally, the name would be on the ace of clubs. Go figure
