Print it out onto Letter size cardstock and cut each sheet into six
cards, discarding the upper strip. You play with each card full size,
showing both the artwork and the explanation. Unless you print something
on the back before cutting, the backs are blank.

....or did you print it out on plain sticker paper and place on cards?

Have you ever seen cards that size?

the pages say "I of 14, 2 of 14" etc.

Yeah, I don't know why that is. The layout software is kinda barfing
on having to deal with so many large pictures at once. 78 (= 6 * 13) is
the right number of cards for a Tarot deck, though. (= 4 * 14 + 22)

... also, when I downloaded them, I got good images on the left side,
but there was a bit cut off on the right.  Specifically, I lost the
cup (or other symbol) on the upper right corner of each card.   Any

I'm starting to remember some of these problems from six years ago.
The right edge got cut of in the transition to PDF, and the only thing
that would solve it is a thorough redesign that will never happen.

OK... so that was a bit more than a couple of questions, but hey, I'm
allowed, right?  :)

Have you been talking to Kibo?
