Pam's Vintage Tarot is a restored edition of one of the oldest Tarot decks, illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. It is presented to you as result of my latest commission work thanks to courtesy of Tarot deck collector from Australia who provided high resolution scans of the deck from her private collection. (Note: this is not the same deck as US Games or any other copyright RWS Tarot but much older first edition!) and requested for specific modification to be made according to her personal preferences with goal of creating more genuine ageless design that can’t be linked for specific geographic place, ethnicity, or time.

I must say, we are both more than happy seeing result; we think PCS would approve too! :)

Pam’s Vintage Tarot will be available for sale only for limited time & number of decks!

Note: all my decks have promo price first month after publishing & holidays including Halloween! The price will go up less there is left before it’s OOP (Out of print!:) So, early birds get better deal!

With that said, whether you are thinking of adding it to your collection, trying it as your main working deck (like I did!:), or getting it as your first tarot, or are still thinking, Hm, here is a list of changes in how it differs from traditional RWS that may help make up your mind:

*Original hi-res card scans (front & back) are merged with aged paper texture for vintage effect

*All text & borders are removed from all cards front and back as well as roman numbers from minors, therefore leaving only major arcana numbered in romans (for more ornamental purpose due to small size!)

*Cards are printed Bridge size as we find it most fitting proportion-wise

*78 tarot cards, +1 title card + extra 11 cards featuring artwork from lesser known illustrations from PCS's earlier works; 90 cards total!

Changes from 1st edition;

+plain vintage effect background(no ornamented corners for bridge size cards this time!:)

*improved card front design (resized to better fit printing safety lines & less chance for elements like signature to be cut in printing process!:)

*card back design/effect is slightly changed

*11 new art cards & 1 title card!

Hope you like! I know I do!

This is such a great deck, overall - I love the concept of presenting a borderless, "tea-stained" version of the Waite-Smith. I didn't want the RWS, but this one I couldn't resist. The card quality feels really lovely. I was torn be [...]

beautiful deck. I always wanted a vintage looking deck, but I didn't have the funds to purchase an actual vintage deck. The cards feel durable, riffle shuffle well. They feel like really nice playing cards. The bridge size is a great travel size dec [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
