Untold Tarot presents historic styles of reading little known in the modern era. It teaches traditional ways of reading used for pre-twentieth-century decks, drawing upon older cartomantic arts such as blending and pairing cards, reading lines, and following "line of sight" to piece together untold stories according to the direction in which the characters are facing. The book also includes a selection of card spreads drawn from traditional French and Italian sources, plus methods of reading cards based on the author's own extensive research.
This unique tarot deck honors the legacy of Old World cartomancy by marrying a humble pack of French-suited playing cards with the classic Tarot de Marseille. Reflecting tarot’s roots as a card game, Playing Marseille takes a playful approach to reading that highlights simple, accessible folk methods and keen observation instead of esoteric symbolism. Ryan Edward’s practical system of fortune telling is easy to learn and can be enjoyed with any Marseille tarot deck. Includes 78 cards and a 56-page illustrated guidebook with card meanings, keywords, instructions and sample readings. The guidebook explains how to read the tarot though the lens of classic playing card cartomancy.
