Benebell Wen The Holistic Tarot


Her book, at nearly 900 pages, is amazing. She has great reviews from every well-know taroist I've ever heard of. I've added this to my library (and I don't buy many Tarot books)

Here's her website

Here's some reviews from AT folks

It does show up cheaper from time to time. On abe, for one - keep your eyes open.

And vol 1 is on amazon for 6.99. The others - well, wait it out

The books are massive, and i enjoy just looking at the different cards. As Gregory mentioned, the books do make me want to buy a lot of cards i never would have known about.

For something more concise, perhaps look into Bill Butler's Definitive Tarot/Dictionary of the Tarot (different editions, same book).

Butler gives an overview of different decks and divinatory meanings from various influential authors.
