I'm looking for a picture of an uncut sheet of French playing tarot cards (the kind used for the game of Tarot, not for divination). Google Translate didn't help much.

Hello Jared,

Are you looking for just a picture? Or do you actually want to buy uncut sheets?

You can buy 2 uncut sheets of 12 on this French boutique, scroll toward the middle of the page (the preview picture is small, but I've found a bigger version, see below).
http://www.letarot.com/boutique/index.php

Bigger versions of these pictures are available at the bottom of this page:
http://tarot-history.com/The-Atelier/index.html

I also found the following interesting picture of a store window; it features large uncut sheets:

Hope this helps,

Skarabajo.

I was looking for a picture, because I wanted to know how the 78 cards were arranged on one sheet, if they were. The second picture is what I was looking for, except that the suits are not French (hearts, spades, etc.). But that's OK.

I also found this one, it doesn't look like an uncut sheet, but it its very high resolution and you can see great details. This one has the French suits.

It is indeed a fairly big picture. Maybe your browser is having trouble with it (it is 5180 by 4080 pixels, so it is 21 Megapixels).

Actually, I just realized that the original is from Wikimedia Commons. So, they have several previews in different resolutions and even the useful ZoomViewer tool:

All the different size link and the ZoomViewer tool links are just below the image.

Actually, it just wouldn't load - I was getting a 404-type error. But it loads now for some reason.

And I've seen that picture before. It's quite nice. :)
