The Swansong Tarot Deck


This 78 card tarot deck is designed for use with the Swansong role-playing game.

Formatted to print beautifully in either colour or greyscale, the Swansong tarot is an ideal choice for anyone seeking an affordable downloadable, tarot deck.

The simple designs are rich in symbolism and history, intending to provide fuel for the imagination.


Tarot cards have existed in many forms for centuries. The tarot deck is somewhat similar to the one used in the the 15th century Italian game of tarocco, but the true origin of the tarot remains shrouded in mystery.

The ubiquitous deck of playing cards is derived from the tarot deck, swords become spades, cups become hearts...etc.

The archetypal imagery and symbolism within the cards, particularly the major arcana, connects deeply to what Jungians call the collective unconscious, reflecting a myriad of religious beliefs and mythology.

The tarot cards have many uses, often for telling ?fortunes? or "Stories?.

Swansong is my suggestion for a game you could play with the tarot?a game of stories. Stories like those the cards themselves are steeped in.

Original electronic
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.
