Banyen's Description: 

Discover forgotten divinatory skills, and learn to read the Tarot with confidence. Not just another Tarot book, 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 time to rediscover these lost skills is ripe, and the practical and personal approach presented here empowers you to read in your own fluid style and develop a full palette of skills. 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.

Older tarots tend to speak lucidly and frankly about life as it is—they pull no punches but offer windows into the hidden motivations and distressing challenges of life, giving us pathways of possibility…

 

I encourage you to use your decks with confidence and with playful concentration. Use them frequently, asking questions that are both needful and well framed, so that the tarot can give you helpful and honest answers. This is where the dialogues between you and your early tarot can begin, and where the untold story will tell you its tale.

This is a book which will be read, re-read, and used as a book of study. Untold Tarot is an important contribution to tarot in the 21st century.” —Linda Henery, the Tarot Conservatory
