Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: When reversed, the Page of Pentacles may bring disappointing news about an exam, a job offer, or some other financial matter. Rather than put in the required effort, this reversed Page tries to manage by doing the least amount of work necessary. Often this leads to failure or less than stellar results. He tends to be lax about the care of his body and would rather go out to a bar with friends than spend time at the gym.
Creative Tarot: Its not just visual artists who were drawn to the tarot. Writers have used the cards as a storytelling technique for centuries now. That ranges from the hokey (a young adult protagonist visits a fortune-teller who reveals her true fate via the cards, which sends her off on a grand adventure, and so on) to the more sophisticated.
Complete Book of Tarot: When the French conquered Milan and the Piedmont of northern Italy in 1499, they brought the Italian game of trionfi back with them to southern France. The tarot became popular in the city of Marseille, which grew into a major center of playing card manufacture in Europe. The tarot decks produced there, for obvious reasons, became known as the Tarot of Marseille. The pattern and arrangement of the Marseilles seventy-eight cards became the standard against which later decks would be measured. The Tarot of Marseille became the most widely used deck in non-English-speaking countries.

Tarot Triumphs: Here is how my own Tarot collection and my relationship with the Tarot progressed. After I had bought my first two packs, the Marseilles and the Rider-Waite Tarots, I went on the hunt for more. Over the next few years, general interest in Tarot blossomed, and more packs were beginning to appear in the shops. Living in London in the early seventies, I haunted Watkins Books, long a home of esoteric books and now of Tarot cards too. I bought practically every pack I could find with the idea of forming a collection. The choice was still very limited though; I acquired a Swiss Besançon pack, the Richard Gardner/Insight Institute pack (a hybrid of Rider-Waite and Marseilles), and a gilded version of the Oswald Wirth pack. I bought other Tarots that were too fanciful for use, and some double-ended packs that were really just for card games. It wasn’t long before my collection, now into double digits, divided itself clearly between packs I could use for Tarot study and divination and those that were just curiosities. As the world began to take up Tarot, I found the proliferation, quite frankly, bewildering, and I decided to limit my collection and enjoy what I had there already. However, I did make occasional additions; a special find in Venice were two beautiful reproductions of historic Tarocchi packs. By this time I had decided to limit my interests mainly to traditional Tarot. Here, I felt, lay the true story.
