A Cryptic Guide to the Hopeless, Maine Tarot

Selected Option:

Madame Portentia didn’t know what she was getting into when she dug through the refuse in the fabled Kelp-Master’s Stinking Shack on the shore of the island.

Driven to desperation by a lack of decent recyclable rubbish with which to supplement her income as the island’s one and only fortune teller, she dared to unlock the creaky wooden box she uncovered in the tumbledown shack. What she found in that box changed her life—whether for better or for worse is still up for debate.

Are you as intrepid as Madame Portentia? Will you dare to open the box that contains the Hopeless, Maine Tarot and discover its secrets? We cannot promise safety, of course, as with so many aspects of island life. But we suspect you will be just as thrilled as Madame Portentia when you become acquainted with these cards. Provided, of course, you prepare properly with a carefully chosen talisman and a solid, demon-proof cabinet to store the deck in. And perhaps a can of Tentacle Repellant spray.

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.
