If readers are expecting to glean some covert, insider information from The Secret of the Tarot, they will be disappointed. On the other hand, if enthusiasts are yearning to explore the mysterious history and images of the tarot, this deck and guidebook make an ideal set. Illustrator Helen Jones (The Chinese Astrology Kit) re-creates the early Renaissance images that appeared on the original cards, giving this set a medieval ambiance with the colorful luster of Italian artwork. Author Jane Lyle (The Lovers' Tarot) has a strong command of archetypes and imagery, expertly interpreting how they apply to divination and personal growth. For example, she explains how the Hermit's stave "connects him with the earth, with his path, and symbolizes his inner strength." For the reader, this translates as "a wise guide leading you toward an unknown future." Lyle also offers a basic introduction to tarot reading, along with suggested card spreads. --Gail HudsonAbout the Author:
