Hit the Deck

Most of the visits to this blog are to the Deck Collection page, likely because of search engine hits for specific decks.  To provide more “eye candy” for the tarot/oracle enthusiast, I will be adding “deck images” pages organized by letter of the alphabet, featuring scans of my favorite cards from some of my favorite and obscure decks.  These images will typically be of the card back, and my favorite major, minor, and court card of a deck.

The Deck Images pages can be reached through the main Deck Collection page, or via the Pages sidebar on the site.

This gives me a good excuse to reaquaint and more closely explore the decks in my collection, and share my passion and shine a light on this treasure house of images.

What is your Quest?

    I really like your site. Impressive collection of cards. I wondered if you might be able to direct me to a deck that is especially nature-centered. I have a way of reading the tarot that interprets the wands as our relationship with nature. The rider-waite deck does not really led itself to this interpretation. I would appreciate any suggestions. Kind Regards to you.

    Hi Gary,

    Thank you so much for the good information. I’ll check out those decks. Let me know if I can return the favor somehow. Check out my blog if you get a chance. It has some tarot stuff in there.

    Thanks again, Sonja

    Hi there. I have a new blog myself… but I’m still not sure about posting scanned cards… can you help me out with this? Should I contact the creator per image post or a link returning to their site would be enough?

      It is considered a good practice to request permission of the artist or publisher to post scanned images of tarot cards. Most of them are very appreciative of posting some images, as long as the quantity and image size are not large.

      You have a nice Tarot blog, with lots of posts (something I need to get back into). All the best to you…
