    A nice beginner set

    My daughter and I bought this set, it's our first experience with Tarot cards. This book is easy to understand and spends time going over the meaning of each suite. It explains the symbology and the cards are pretty. Cards fit together with book in a cardboard 'box like' cover, but it doesn't fasten shut so you need a rubberband to hold it all together.

    no reverse meaning

    This book was my first glimpse into the world of tarot, I recently bought a second book which lead me to discover that there are reverse meanings to the cards which this book did not cover or even touch on.
