They're fairly low resolution, but I blew one up by doubling the dimensions and then sharpening it a bit, and it looks pretty good - http://home.windstream.net/rlsaylor/death.jpg
Actually it's not bad even with the dimensions tripled, but I didn't want to eat up too much drivespace on my web server by uploading it.

Here is a scan I did of the Ace of Cups. The actual scan is twice this size, but I reduced it for the web. http://home.windstream.net/rlsaylor/1_cups.jpg
I could try to do about four scans a day, but being an Aries, at some point I may become undependable.

I have a request, does anyone have high quality scans of the black and white images from Pictorial Key? I want to make some coloring books, and play with some other colorings with the key scale.

Also, I have an idea of taking the images and using a different scale of color based on different letters for each cards.

Thank's in advance if anyone can help me find these, I need some artist practice and this would be perfect!

Perhaps this may help

Okay guys. We cannot turn to kenji for everything. I'll do the large scan of PKT images from 1922 edition. Wait a while, please.

Thank you for saving me some work. Those images will be much appreciated, by me as well as others. I wish to do a recoloring of the RWS deck in the spirit of the Albano-Waite.

Thanks for sharing these. I had never really been aware of what the differences were to be between the Pam A and Pam B.

I also prefer the Pam A. The Pam B characters look like they have chicken pox

thanks again
