"At the heart of Pam Richards’ new book Understanding Tarot is a detailed guide to the imagery and symbolism of each of the 78 cards in the tarot deck. Both the upright and reversed meanings of each card are given. For those new to tarot, keywords for each card are displayed in bold-italic text.
This book uses as its reference point the classic tarot deck known as ‘Rider-Waite-Smith’, which was designed by Arthur Edward Waite and then drawn and brought to life by Pamela Colman Smith in 1909. Readers who wish to learn more about the images of this extraordinary deck will find this book very helpful. In addition, the book includes an ‘In a Nutshell’ section for each card, which allows it to be used with any set of tarot cards.
Understanding Tarot is intended to be a companion for all tarot students, whether they are completely new to the subject or an experienced enthusiast looking to broaden their view of this wonderful deck of cards. Whether you wish to understand each card in detail or use them for psychic development, this book has you covered."
