Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by communicative Mercury the messenger of the gods, Virgo comes sixth in the zodiac. Virgo the Virgin, an adaptable mutable sign, is associated with the Hermit, trump IX. The Knight of Pentacles falls largely under Virgo, a sign whose natives are characterized by these traits:
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: Lately, for the purposes of researching this book (or so I tell myself), I have bought more packs from the much wider selection of traditional Tarot now available. The Golden Tarot, for instance, is a gorgeous historical reproduction of the fifteenth-century Visconti-Sforza pack, with sensitive restorations of three missing cards. Reproductions of key Marseilles packs, such as the 1701 Madénie and the 1761 Conver Tarots, are also valued acquisitions to my collection.3 But for the purposes of historical study and comparing packs, there is now a wealth of digital imagery available online. The British Museum collection online is an excellent place to start, via a search for Tarot cards in its vast digital photo library. Images can also be emailed to you without charge if they are purely for private study.4 I love to lose myself in the images of historic Tarot packs that I’ve downloaded and printed out. The only cost, although admittedly not cheap, is that of the printing ink.
