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.

The Dolphins used in the crest point to the local French roots of this fine card maker. Today, the only known copy of this Tarot is being kept at the British Museum in London. A rare find, perfect for the Tarot collector.
