Card Images from the Ancient Egyptian Tarot
Ancient Egyptian Tarot review by Melanie Stoehrer
I love this deck! The imagery jumps off the card at you, making reading a lot easier than with many other decks. The author's explanation of the symbology synthesizes the complexity of Egyptian mythology into an easily understood form. Anyone with even a small background in studies of ancient Egypt will recognize the buildings, temples and other scenes depicted on the cards.
The cards are large, but the picture fills up most of the card, so there is very little in the way of white border. When the book is referenced for explanation, not only does it describe each card, and the significant symbols found, but the card meanings themselves are easily associated with the vivid imagery. Each element in the card is explained in detail, including the colors, and associations of the 'totem'...
