Tarot deck



The Frog Tarot
From the website.
The Frog Tarot: Author/Artist: Lillie.

This in-progress tarot has whimsical and delightful images of Frogs!

The majors are Rider-Waite (8 is Strength, 11 is Justice), the minors are Marseille-style frog-pips. There is full colouring throughout the deck. The major arcana cards are quite enchanting, so too are the minor arcana court cards. (See the knights!).

A most unusual deck of frogs, but with an 'adult' appeal.

Licence: Free.
But please browse the site for updates, this author may add a permission notice.


  The Cool Tarot
The DeadGirl (cool) Tarot. Author/Artist: "littledeadgirl".

Free printable Tarot Cards. Full 78 card deck with alternate images for 14 cards.
This original deck is a collage. The cards have a broad spectrum of images which cover; the unexpected, the everyday, the arresting, the 'cute', the appealing and the thought-provoking. A 'cool' deck.
The cards are displayed with four to a picture and can be downloaded by right-clicking each 4-fold picture and choosing 'Save Image As...' from the mouse context menu. Card Size: 242 x 354pixels. Format: jpg.
I have zipped them up for this download, but strongly recommend visiting the website for any further info and possible 'updates' to the deck. It would also be nice (mandatory in fact) to discover the artists real name & accord her due credit!

LIcence: Free.

Author/artist comments:
" I looked all over the Web for a cool-looking free printable deck of tarot cards and couldn't find a good one. So I made my own. It has taken me 2 years to finally complete all 78 cards...although I still don't consider the deck to be "finished". I hope you have as much fun using these as I did making them!"


  Catharinas Tarot
Catharinas Tarot Trumps.Author. Catharina

This tarot is a strangely beautiful fusion of assorted imagery which successfully incorporates both Native American and mythical images. The cards echo Pamela Smiths (Rider-Waite) depictions for the Major Arcana. They have a mystical, magical, quality and are set within wide shadowed golden frames.
The website is in Dutch with some english, please visit if you wish to see her other work or to download the cards from there.
(My favourites are The Sun & The World)
Card size:250 x 350 pixels. Format: jpg.

The download contains the licence (in English) which is as follows,
"These images are for non-commercial use only. You're not allowed to change them and make sure you give me credit."
(Short & sweet licence - says it all.)


  Krysias Tarot

Krysias Tarot & Divinatory PDF
Tarot Trumps. Author/Artist: krysia

This deck contains 32 cards, the Major Arcana, the Four Aces, and all by itself, the 2 of Cups. At present the author has no plans for including all the Minor Arcana, but if enough people were to email/contact her........who knows (?!).

A high resolution contemporary deck of photo quality. Beautifuly blended images, with some translucant effects. A few cards are pics of people, i.e. Brad Pitt, other cards like "Judgment", are stunningly evocative.
Card size: 300 x 420 pixels. Format: jpg

The cards download includes two versions of some cards, so you can choose the images you prefer. Note: The cardback is a separate download from the website.
Krysia has several download options for the cards (6 print-ready Tarot sheets). There is also a PDF booklet for the divinatory meanings.
NOTE: There are two downloads for the PDF, the single download generates an error when opening it. To download a working version of the PDF (plus all the cards) click the appropriate link on the left. If you want to Print the PDF contents please make a note of the following instructions advised by Loretta M Yeo who sussed it out.
"The PDF file can be printed on 8.5" x 11" paper if you use the right print settings.
From Adobe Reader, set it like this:

Page Scaling: None
Auto-Rotate and Center: Off (no check in box).

This will give you the first page (the single-page cover) and the left half of each of the other pages.
Then, in the main Adobe Reader screen, click on Rotate Clockwise two times to make the images up-side down. Now you can print pages 2-15 with the same settings as before, and you'll get the other halves of the pages."

(Loretta recommends World of Tarot, the program is on CD (not free) but very comprehensive and customisable, and includes nine card decks).
Thanx go to Loretta for this info.
Do visit Krysias website for more info. about the cards and download options.

Licence: "A Free downloadable deck".... "Free for fun.."
Most (if not all) of the images have been derived from royalty-free, royalty- free used-with-permission, personal, and web-found images.
Suggestion: If you use these cards, for any purpose, please credit Krysia and provide a link to her site.


  The B.O.T.A. Tarot Deck
Free. The B.O.T.A Tarot deck . Paul Foster Case. From The Tarot Instuitute.

Regarded by many to embody the Western Mystery Tradition, this is a black & white deck. The colouring of the images should be undertaken as an exercise in order to assimilate the depth of each card - one might say "a spiritual excerise".

Visit website for colouring info (important), & for viewing or downloading the cards individually.

Experimental Tarot Deck
download page.

The Experimental Tarot. Author Samvado Gunnar Kossatz
Samvados site is an Overview of the deck with detailed meanings plus downloads for the full Tarot deck.

The author doesn't make it clear (well, not to me...) in what way his deck can be used after it's been downloaded. However the cards are copyrighted and the physical deck is retail, so to err on the safe side I would say that this deck is for personal and private use only.

The images are quite modern-day but the meanings are both poetic & indepth, planetry correspondances are also given. Mr
Kossatz comes across as a philosophical thinker and it is reflected in his cards.

There are site-pages for the Major Arcana and the Four Elements where you can view the cards and choose to view the texts associated with them .
Card size: 343 x 500. Format: bmp.

As there are four separate downloads comprising 78 Cards, the Divination texts, and the Introductory texts, the link on the left will open the Experimental Tarot download page in a separate window.

The Colman-Smith Tarot Overview & Download Author
Samvado Gunnar Kossatz

This is actually a reproduction of the Rider-Waite Tarot, but due to copyright issues concerning the words "Waite" and "Tarot", it has had to be been renamed.
The site is laid out similar to the Experimental Tarot above, with pages for veiwing the cards plus texts, and there are three downloads for the Tarot deck and Divinatory Texts etc, hence the download page will open in a separate window.
Card size: 188 x 270 pixels. Format: jpg.

Many thanks to Mr Kossatz for making these card images available and licencing them under the GPL. (General Public Licence)

  The Mantegna Deck jpg's
The Mantegna-Tarocchi
Dispite the (valid) opinion of historians that this deck was not designed by Mantegna, and neither does it conform to a 78 card Tarot deck, various copies of the original engravings have been made over the centuries and it has generally become known as the 'Mantegna Tarot'. The actual original deck dating from around 1470 CE has not yet been discovered.
Variously described as a 'humanistic deck' or a 'cosomological deck' and even an 'astrological deck', it has five sets of ten cards.

(Excerpt from a posting by Huck at Trionfi.com)
Trionfi favours a solution in which the Mantegna Tarocchi engravings were produced around 1475, in which the engraving artist was the German printer Sweynheim, who engraved after motifs, which were mainly collected from possibly various sources, mainly bought in a book + engraving store in Venice by the poet Ludovico Lazzarelli, who before 1475 used partly the same motifs already for 2 manuscript productions in Urbino - in different compositions than the 50-elements-Mantegna-Tarocchi.
Involved in the production were probably persons connected to a later Pope, Pope Sixtus IV.

This download contains the 50 greyscale images of the 'Mantegna' deck, they are the prints of a copy made by a16th century Cologne artist Johann Ladenspelder. More information can be found at
this link.

Download images are rather fuzzy. Clearer images are here at

Size: approx. average: 231 x 394. DPI: 96

No copyright - but as with the Rider-Waite deck, modern reproductions may have copyrighted the two words "Mantegna" & "Tarot" being used together.
