Tarot Cards... Finally!

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may know that last year I decided to make a deck of tarot cards collaged from pages of an old encyclopedia. It took quite a while, but I finished the 78-card deck, like, six months ago and never showed you guys! So I decided to put scans of the entire deck here. (My apologies for the awkward-looking scans... My scanner doesn't seem to pick up the actual colors on the cards)

The card backs look like this:

The background is a scan of the cover of the encyclopedia set I used. I thought it might be cool to actually kind of turn the books into this deck of cards.. maybe?

Here's the Major Arcana:

And here's the Minor Arcana. I decided to draw most of them instead of collaging every single one, so I think all of the number cards are drawn.

Here is the wands suit:



And Swords:

Congratulations (and thank you) for making it this far! I would love to know what you think in the comments below!!
