Books on the Tarot abound, occasionally taking up entire walls in occult and specialty bookstores. The following titles represent a sampling of the various approaches to the subject of the Tarot. Consider this a place to start.
The Tarot: a Key to the Wisdom of the Ages, by Paul Foster Case. This extended essay on the Major Arcana provides a wealth of detail on the symbology of the Greater Trumps.
Mastering the Tarot: Basic Lessons in an Ancient, Mystic Art, by Eden Gray. Written by one of the most prolific popularizers of the Tarot, this book offers a user-friendly approach to standard Tarot interpretations.
Tarot Lays: Reflective Patterns of the Tarot (Salamander Series #2). This slim pamphlet presents numerous unusual spreads useful in exploring the relationships among the cards of the Tarot.
Tarot For Your Self, by Mary K. Greer. A user-friendly (if a bit shallow) guide to basic Tarot symbolism and use. Includes mention of many different modern decks as well as the more traditional ones.
