Animal tarot

The Animal tarot (German: Tiertarock) is a sub-genre of tarot card. The earliest examples are from 18th century Germany, probably designed by Göbl of Munich, and a theme of animals replaces the traditional trump scenes of the Tarot de Marseilles and Visconti Sforza Tarocchi. Patterns with full-figured courts, prominent during the 18th–20th centuries, included the Bavarian and the Belgium styles. Later designs are the Upper Austria Animal Tarot and Adler Cego cards.
