Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by taskmaster Saturn, Capricorn comes tenth in the zodiac. Capricorn the Mountain Goat or Seagoat, an active initiatory cardinal sign, is associated with the Devil, trump XV. The Queen of Pentacles falls largely under Capricorn, a sign whose natives are characterized by these traits:
Creative Tarot: Yeats used many occult systems in his writing. He was married to Bertha Georgie Hyde-Lees, a skilled medium who was also a member of the Golden Dawn. Together they used Ouija boards and automatic writing to contact the spirit realm, but also more classic systems such as astrology and tarot. This renewed interest in the occult reinvigorated his dedication to poetry, and led to some of his greatest work. Much of Yeatss late-career poems drew directly on the revelations he received through séances and divination rituals. He stated that the spirit realm gave him the metaphors he used in his poetry, and many of those metaphorsSlouches towards Bethlehem and the centre cannot hold, both from his 1919 poem The Second Cominghave become common phrases in our culture.
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.
