A look at Pam’s Vintage Tarot, made from high resolution scans of one of Pamela Colman Smith’s original decks (*) ~ all borders and text removed (apart from Roman numerals on the Majors) and printed on “aged-paper” cardstock in earthy, rusty colours. There is also a bright coloured version of this deck available and they come in either bridge size or Tarot size.
(*) note: the original deck this was recreated from is an older version than the one US Games Inc now has the copyright on, so I guess that’s how they got around that one!
When I ordered this deck I wasn’t sure if I needed another RWS deck… but now I have it in my possession I can categorically tell you that, YES! I did! ☺️ I have to say that I love it, love it, LOVE IT!
My previous RWS decks have always been used for study & comparison rather than as actual working decks ~ this one feels different. I can see myself using it, and using it often.
The box is in 2 parts, with a bottom and a lid, sturdy enough & more luxurious than the regular cardboard tuck boxes ~ the cardstock is flexible and smooth, no cards sticking together at all, and I just adore the colours ~ the faded blue, burnt orange, muted yellows and browns really give the vintage feel to the deck.
There are 2 “extra” cards with artwork by PCS – a nice touch, but they won’t be used with the deck as such.
Find this deck on TheGamecrafter.com if you are in the US, you will also find a link there for European customers (which is where I ordered my copy) ~ friendly and fast service from @myluckycards over on Instagram!!!
