PAT AND PAUL: We sell 100s of Tarot Books... But when people ask us to recommend a good book for beginners or even advanced tarot readers, this is ALWAYS our go to. Frankly this is the best book ever written on Tarot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Now revised and expanded!
When it was first published nearly 40-years-ago, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom was an instant classic and inspired generations of tarot students. Often referred to as the "bible of tarot books" it has now helped to launch the "tarot renaissance" we're seeing today. Drawing on mythology and esoteric traditions and delving deeply into the symbolism and ideas of each card, the book offers a modern psychological interpretation of the tarot archetypes rather than a system of esoteric symbolism.
This book provides:
A concise history of tarot
An introduction to common tarot spreads
A clear and endlessly useful reference for both beginning and advanced tarot students
