- Jocelyn Almond and Keith Seddon, Understanding Tarot.
In the process of discussing interpretations of the cards,
this book gives short descriptions of the imagery.
I found this useful as a starting-point for drawing them.
Also, the keywords along the top
and bottom edges of the cards
(apart from the court cards)
are lifted directly from this book.
- Jonathan Dee, Tarot, 1999.
ISBN 0-75257-637-2. Sold with a tarot deck
Jeremy bought in a
cheapie book shop for £3.
- Rowenna Stuart, Collins Gem Tarot, 1999.
Illustrated with the quasi-mediaeval imagery of the
18th-century Tarot of Marseilles. Nice potted history of Tarot,
and outlines of the symbolism. I used this book for the physical
descriptions of the court cards (hair and eye colour) and the zodiac
Charlotte and Peter Fiell, Chairs
Illustrates important chair designs form the whole of the
twentieth century (and a few from the end of the nineteenth, such
as the King of Wands chair, which is from 1897), and gives
biographies of the designers. I referred to this book while
drawing some of the chairs in the court cards.
