Michael's Tarot Notebook[edit]

Removed[edit]

The arcanes of Tarot of Marseilles are near from antic egyptian tarot. gypsies (meaning coming from Egypt), spread it around Mediteranean sea. The gypsies originated from India, then it could come from India as another gypsy art : circus.

This needs references before it is added again. --Error 01:19, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

Copyright infringement?[edit]

Why do these card images all seem to have copyright warnings in them? They're too small to read, but along the upper end of the left border of each card is something that looks like a copyright notice. Not a good sign.

Has whoever added these images checked that they're actually old cards (with original colourings)? If not, we're likely infringing someone's copyright. There are a number of decks that either use old Marseilles Tarot linework with altered colouring (which is a sufficient change to allow a modern copyright on the images) or else use modern images drawn in the style of the old Marseilles cards.

The source information given for these images is rather scanty and hardly reassuring. We need better information on where these images originate and why we can treat them as being in the public domain. Otherwise they need to be deleted. Thanks for your help. Fuzzypeg 00:47, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

A little more research reveals that this deck is the Tarot of Marseilles published since 1970 by the French company Grimaud. Grimaud have cleaned up the images from the original woodcuts printed in primary red, yellow and blue. That little copyright notice probably says "© Grimaud 1970". Start looking for new images, guys!
