Welcome to the TarotCollectors deck. I’m Sherry, the official 'Cat Herder' or organizer for the deck. I have put together a document with basic requirements/suggestions. It is much easier to communicate via email than messenger, so I would like your email address. Just send it over via messenger. Once I get the email address I’ll send the formal deck requirements Thanks, Sherry

I will be checking Facebook more often, so if you are a member there, it's best to check there too.

Deadline is July 31st.

Card size and ratio.
See diagram for the actual card size and dimensions. The dashed area is the border which will be done by someone else, your design area is 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches. To make the final design look as good as possible, it is always recommended to work at a larger scale. Then when the final design is scaled down at the end, it minimizes any little imperfections. It just looks better. You can work any scale you want, as long as the final ratio is 1:1.5. In other words, 1 inch in the horizontal equals 1 1/2 inch in the vertical. The border is area is completed by me, or someone helping me. We also do the text-card number and title. Having the border and the text the same ties all the various cards into a cohesive deck. If the card doesn’t fit, I have been scaling it into the border. So far this has worked really well. If it distorts the card too much I will let you know.

Card Size:
Imperial Inches = 2.5 x 3.75 in
Metric = 63.5 x 95.25 mm
Pixels = 750 x 1125 at 300dpi

I would prefer the final design you send me to be in jpg format, I can deal with a few others, but if you can convert it to jpg, it will save me from having to convert it. A minimum resolution of 300dpi is requested, higher is better, but 300dpi is minimum.

Storm Blue has also expressed interest in doing the aces in the other thread.

Can I get the Hanged Man? I guess someone asked for the Magician in the seconds between my seeing it available on FB, and asking on the forum, perhaps twenty at most.

Okey dokey. It may have been taken in the comments section. She was one of the first to request a card over there.

HP and sixes, please.

And I do think forum requests should take precedence over FB (see Quarkling) - it is the TCF deck, after all.

High priestess is gone already.

As for the other, tough. I believe I mentioned I'd be checking FB more often. It is much easier for me. And we do want it to be easier for me, don't we? :-)

Well there you go. It wasn't when I posted :sd So if FB wins out - I'm sorry but this site needs to be updated as soon as a claim is made there.

Judgement - and if that's gone I'll just pass on majors; not worth the hassle.

YES we want it to be easier for you, and you are wonderful to keep doing it, but if FB claims always trump TCF claims...

So here we are - I posted 10 hours ago and haven't been listed yet. And I guess if someone has asked for it on FB today, they will get Judgement....

Did you read it? It says clear as day "cards taken but not reflected on listing- judgement".

If this is too much of a problem we can just cancel the deck. Or if you really want it exactly as you want it, you can take over and manage it.

I was listed in the area I mentioned. I am working on the listing now, and I will take it off. There is enough interest now that it will come in handy.

I think changing the chart actually takes more work then just mentioning it. But why don't you do Judgement now, Gregory. It was already reserved for you.

I think the way to solve the problem is the following: look at what time people have posted their request on fb and on the forum. The first one (time wise), gets the card. That way there is no fb takes precedence over tcf.

Thanks truelighth. It does take more time, it's not just a quick update. There is about six steps to get a form that will work on both the forum and facebook.

I used to use the time thing, but in this instance I was still setting up everything and people were selecting cards (and complaining, or commenting). It was just timing.

As for the Judgement card, she said she didn't want it and I've already created a new listing, so there's that.

I was just told it was reserved. If that post had said "you got it..." I'd have realised that. The implication I took from it was it had gone elsewhere. I'll take it IF it's actually available. Otherwise I'll stick with the sixes.

I do know the chart takes more work. I didn't know having it on FB made it even harder - maybe a googledoc is the less stressful way to go for skad ? (the dragon forum finds them most useful for monitoring linages !)

So it wasn't reserved for me - as I thought it wasn't.

So truelighth understood it wrong too - maybe you could put who it's reserved FOR in that top post too ?

No, someone else picked the card after you said you didn't want it, before you decided you wanted it after all. If you weren't so scared of Facebook you could see the timestamp.

That's fair enough. No worries. But it would be worth putting the names in the first post, in case it happens that there are two people asking for a card and its title goes up there and they don't' know which of them got it.

You might find a google doc was less hassle for you to maintain than editing the pdf.

Just for the record, though, I am not AFRAID of Facebook. I do think it is thoroughly noxious and I refuse to engage with it. Please don't attribute thoughts to me that aren't mine. :ce

What I prefer to do, though, is maintain my personal space on line. That is a whole separate issue and not directly FB related.

The world.

The center of the card shows the Nebra sky disk, a bronze disk with astronomic symbols on it from c. 1600 B.C. It contains sort of the first scientific theory in human history, answering the question how the sun manages to disappear behind the western horizon and show up again at the eastern horizon. The idea is that the sun is being put on a boat (depicted at the bottom of the disk) and carried around the outer edge of the world, that was still flat at the time.

The rest of the card was meant to be drawn in the tradition of alchemical symbolism. But that didn't work too well. It ended up as a riddle made from pictograms about various other scientific attempts to make sense of what we observe about the structure of the world as a whole, or, as David Deutsch has put it, the fabric of reality.

Cool stuff again, Ly. I also liked Marcias cards a lot. Is anybody else still here instead of doing facebook only?

Well, whatever, I made a simpler version of my world card. Perferences anybody, of those still looking at TCF?

I am ONLY here, but chose not to post my cards ahead of publication; I sent them to Sherry :cs

Given that some are here and some are there, I didn't see much point in posting them now, as they'll never be all together till they are printed :cl.

trzes - I like the simpler one better, myself. There are some bits on the other that I don't get, and that sort of clutters it for me. If that makes sense.

That does make sense. I also have a text version of the cards with some very brief hints to the meaning of the pictograms. Does that help?

I have more detailed explanations as well, that I am planning to put on a website. A link follows as soon as I managed to put it online.

I actually think that the simplified version simply looks nicer and cleaner, although it loses most of it's message.

Well, sure it's great to see the explanations - but I fear I would want to look at them every time I drew the card.

I do agree about the cluttered look though; it takes away from your rather fine image. How about selecting SOME of the pictograms, which would make it less cluttered but still remind people that science is what makes sense of nonsense ? I was glad to see the identification of Boltzmann, though - I was vaguely aware of him, but hadn't recognised his face !

Agreed, a little less icons might do the job with my image.

Some brief notes about the remaining icons to be added to the LWB bit
- Aristotle and the relativity of up end down: spherical earth
- Galilei and the relativity of positions in space: heliocentric model
- Eiinstein and the relativity of space and time: determinism, matter is energy
- Boltzmann and the relativity of the arrow of time: anthropic bias
- Everett and the relativity of destiny: many worlds

Here is anonther attempt:

MUCH better, I think. Less like the back of an envelope doodling in a cafe, as they say (not to be rude; just - you know how it is when we are FULL of ideas and want to get them ALL out there !) Now each one looks important enough to LOOK at.

You must have been looking straight into my heart :cl

The back of the envelope full of ideas has now got its own web page ( http://reality.spiorad.net/iconsummary.htm ) and the card stays clear. Image and LWB text will soon go to skad1.

trezs, I like them both, but agree the first has alittle tooo much on it. I think it's the sky disk I like seeing on a card.

Updated list on first post. There is a little over a month to go, and there are only 13 cards completed. The cards are not considered complete until the high resolution version is sent to me.

The Devil


The journey of Seven offered by the Devil’s travel agency

I’ll give you a wand promised Pan, use it to succumb to the seven deadly sins or to learn the seven liberal arts. Drink from my cup and you will sail the seven seas to see the seven wonders of the ancient world.  I’ll give you a sword to cut the seven pure notes from the seven colors of the rainbow, on seven continents collect the seven planetary metals, forge them into seven pentacles and use them to buy all of the world or use them to buy back your soul…

First card ready:

The Hierophant

This card is in memory of Chris Asselin. He used the image of a mother with her children for the Hierophant in the Patchwork Tarot. I have always found this a powerful image, as our mothers are the first and most important teachers in our lives. So I have adopted his original image and made it into a black&white drawing.
