Comments: This is the Beginner's Guide to the Tarot that you can color yourself. These cards are uncoated, which makes colored pencils an ideal means of coloring them. While I did not try them myself, I presume the pencils supplied are adequate, but, of course, large, fine sets of colored pencils are easily obtained. In the book, the author also suggests pastels, inks, watercolors & even oils. Whatever method you use, be sure to use some sort of spray fixatif (hairspray will do in a pinch) to keep the colors from smudging or wearing off. (And when you do, remember to use several very light spray coatings. If you spray thickly, the cards may well stick together later.)

Descriptive text in the book is extracted from Beginner's Guide to the Tarot, and, Tarot Workbook, both published by Connections Book Publishing. Also included are instructions for coloring the cards, as well as suggestions for individual cards. For each card, there is also a small space for a journal.

This deck is also part of The Complete Tarot Pack, where you will also find the cards from The Beginner's Guide as well.
