The Pulp of Tarot

The Pulp of Tarot

Embossed 2.75" x 4.75" Tarot Card(s) in Tuckbox

A brand new deck of juicy esoterica, which pays homage to classical designs and also manages to subvert them. THE PULP OF TAROT is a Frankensteinian creation, reimagined as a pastiche of Tarot fragments codged together a dozen other decks collected from around the world. These cards feature monsters, ancient gods, gunslingers, burlesque dancers, UFOs, futuristic buccaneers, and strange animals... all the PULP that can be squeezed into 79 playable cards! This is a basic deck of Minor and Major Arcana that is fully functional on its own, and which also has room for expansion. (Alternate cards, secret suits, and the Super-Arcana will also be available for die-hards, completionists, and collectors of weird novelties.)

Also, please note that the existence of Expansion Sets should in no way impact the effectiveness of this Base Deck. It is designed to be FULL and COMPLETE on its own. My original plan was for 101 cards, but the printing mechanism would not accomodate that. Therefore, my other concepts had to go into supplementary sets, and these are in no way necessary for the functionality of the base deck. And I do apologize, as I had always intended for the extra cards to be included in the base deck. Maybe someday. I hope so.

Please don't order the PDF file. God bless you, if you really want it, but it was created accidentally. I only ever wanted to do a PRINTED deck. I'm not anti-PDF, but I do believe cards are meant to be enjoyed "in hand." If you REALLY want PDF, don't spend $30 ordering them--just drop me an email and we'll figure something out. Not this. Please don't spend $30 on a PDF file. That price is there precisely so you WON'T do that. God bless you.

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.
