Tarot deck creator Holm (Your Magickal Year) delivers a compelling introduction to tarot. The book has the usual beginners’ tropes: history of tarot, choosing a deck, clearing the cards, various spreads of different lengths, and explications of the cards. Both of the aforementioned tarot decks are used as examples of the major and minor arcana cards; neither uses human faces, so as to allow anyone to identify with the archetypes and fairy-tale characters as they wish, without exclusion. Each major arcana card specifically calls out its major theme as well as career and money, love and relationships, and a possible projection. The intelligent writing and distinctive, illuminating interpretations of each of the 78 tarot cards, plus the exquisite nautical illustrations by Eason, make this title a stand-out.
VERDICT Readers of tarot will be drawn to the fabulous illustrations and intelligent interpretations in this guide. It’s intended for beginners but has something for all levels of tarot sophistication.
