Yss 9: Sarlancthe

31 Aug

Here’s the next in the Yss series, which is a whole, self-contained deck of Tarot-like cards accompanied by the mythology for each image. These may require that you click on the images to see larger versions, as WordPress will not allow me to show the full-sized image in the theme which I use for this blog, and without larger versions the text could be illegible on some monitors since it is embedded in the graphics. Here is the next card, Sarlancthe:

    I’ve never heard of these cards. Do you read them for people?

      I find them too cryptic (much like conventional Tarot cards). I am more interested in their mythology than anything else, although I also appreciate their oneiromantic aspects.

    These cards are interesting in may ways. The artwork is mysterious, the write-ups are well thought-out and the theme makes me want to delve more into the background of each card. You’re right, I had to click on it to read what it says, but my 1080p monitor is able to short the letters as crisp as it can. It’s my eyes that need the zoom factor at 100%! Nevertheless, thanks always for sharing!

      Hey, glad you enjoyed it. I looked at these on an old CRT monitor and although it was a pretty high resolution technically I found the text impossible to read in the small size that the blog theme reduces it to, so I figured for the one person in 20 who actually wants to read these I’d better make them available in a bigger size. So I did the whole set and then thought “These are TOO big!” but by then I had already uploaded the first one…so they’re all 1500 pixels wide. 1000 would probably have worked but I wanted guaranteed legibility.
