It's an interesting book, isn't it TA? The format is rather like a child's storybook I think. I agree with you about the pictures. There's one that particularly affected me (unfortunately I'm posting this from work and don't have the book to hand, so I can't say what page it's on). It's a pencil drawing of the High Priestess, or should I say the Papesse. She's in her chair but has just turned around a bit to look over her shoulder. It's a very skilled drawing and I think it brings her to life in a startling way - it's not something I can really put into words very well.
It's a long time since I've looked at the book though, and to be honest that's my strongest memory of it. I bought it hoping to get a handle on the Marseille style, but I'm afraid there were no major revelations in it for me, and my mind still goes blank or flees back to the RWS tradition when faced with a big swathe of swords and flowers and leaves.
