    do you feel knowing the history of the tarot card is important for you as a reader? i mean genenral knowladge is a good thing but can you be a good reader without knowing a thing about the history of the cards.. where they first been published, by whom and for what reason? does it really matter?

    I don't think it does really matter Shayn, but I suppose knowing a little of their history may give you a deeper insight.

    Learning about the history of tarot cards is interesting, it's nice to know how, and where and when things originate from. Although I don't feel this knowledge will make anyone a better reader as we use our intuition along with symbology to read the cards.

    hi V
    did you get a chance to look at this book? is it good?
    can you please write me the full name of the book.
    once again i'm finding myself faceing the history question...

    skye, i don't know how and if history can help to a reading, like you i think it has nothing to do with it, but it is interesting topic...

    To me a tarot card is the painting of someones interpretation for a symbol. I think knowing history in general is very important, so I do think taking the time to learn the history behind the decks designer is important. My personal favorite is the painter Pixie, who designed the Rider-Waite deck. But maybe thats because I feel a kinship to her.

    Hi, unfortunately I didn't get time to look for the book today and I agree Carolyn, history is important.
