An original, complete book and card set designed to introduce the beginner into the intricacies of the Tarot
tarot is an ancient art, dating back at least to the mid-fifteenth
century, and reading the tarot is a skill that can be learned and
ultimately mastered. While there are many books and decks for the
advanced tarot enthusiast, there is very little for the less advanced.
Now there is The Beginner's Guide to the Tarot, a book and card set
designed specifically for the novice. In the fully illustrated, 192
page book, noted tarot expert Juliet Sharman-Burke leads the reader
through the cards and suits, the Minor and Major Arcana, and the major
layouts for the compete 78 card deck. The book is packed with a newly
designed and illustrated deck which draws upon both traditional and
modern tarot iconography and is rendered in a clear, distinctive style.
