The Tarot by Sylvie Simon


I can't tell how long ago the op wrote this question. I've had this book since the late 80s or early 90s.

It's a beautiful picture book that gives a concise explanation of tarot. As I recall the author had a Kabbalistic perspective which does not interest me greatly though when I first bought the book I think it might have been one of the first sources that introduced me to this perspective. But after so many years I can't recall if that is really the case.

That drawing of the High Priestess that the other poster mentioned has always stuck with me too, and one of the strengths of this book is the variety of predominantly non RWS images. A nice, simple resource for TdM tarots.

There are much better tarot resources out there, but I have always liked its simplicity and large colorful images.
