This beginner's tarot workbook is set out as a course of lessons to be completed one at a time, as the student progresses gradually from basic concepts to more advanced techniques and ideas. Bunning gives exercises, examples, keywords, memory aids, and practical advice, and also very usefully shows how to interpret the cards in relation to each other, and thus build the 'story' of a reading. Illustrated throughout with black and white images of the popular Rider-Waite deck, this is a book that Treadwell's booksellers frequently recommend to those looking to get started with the tarot in a structured but beginner-friendly way.
