Pam's Original Art Only Tarot is a restored edition of one of the oldest Tarot decks, illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. It is presented to you thanks to courtesy of Tarot deck collector from Australia who provided high resolution scans of her deck from private collection with permission for me to *restore original coloration & present to you with changes made as *Art Only Edition. (Note: this is not the same deck as US Games or any other copyright RWS Tarot but much older first edition!)

list of changes it differ from traditional RWS; *Original hi res card scans (front&back) are all modified as follows;

  • colors & background textures are digitally restored to improve original printed look of era 1900!:)

*All text, numbers & borders are removed from all cards front and back!

*leaving Art Only to let you immerse in card scenery better

*in order to cover blank space left after removing original borders I *reconstructed part of background & original lineart most of it is lost in printing process but what's important ALL original art is left inside safe aeria & presented on cards! but please have in mind some of art around borders can still be lost in print process due to so called 3mm print shift most printers consider *acceptable!x,x ;)

*alternative cracked back design is digital remix of *original cracked back that is not reversible therefore I prefer & find this more interesting!;)

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.
