Effectivelly I am not so active on Forums since some months: Here or elsewhere.
Because of my own activity in Tarot researchs, developpement of a new Historical Tarot facsimile: To be issue this automn. Plus two other to be issued in next months after in 2015.
I also writte a book re Tarot, words by words and very slowly (as usual for me).
But to answer your question I would say that to put exact colours and /or exact design/object on Tarot cards is a great challenge.
Many various old versions of Tarot of Marseille Pattern does exist: I would say about 50/60 but probably much more.
Nearly nobody (and I am a pretender to be one of them hu hu...) has so much versions in his database.
Anyway you will always face an old (or young) Tarot historian who may criticize your choices because of his own preferences.
So.... what to do ?
Relax: This are only playing cards and Ego trips.
Do search as much as possible old versions and compare them.
Decide by yourself and play your own game and neglict all this "old beards" as I am too
You may also email me if you have specific questions and I will give you my two cents.
