Tarot Cards for Fun and Fortune Telling by Stuart R. Kaplan

The author, Stuart Kaplan, founder of US Games Systems, is the person responsible for introducing Tarot cards to a commercial US market from Europe in 1968. He remains a leading collector and authority on Tarot. This book is a rather deck specific book for the currently less common, Swiss I JJ Tarot. I believe at the time of publication, alongside the Ride-Waite deck these two were the most common decks.

It is named Swiss I JJ because it is reprinted from a Swiss deck and JJ because in this deck the High Priestess card is called Junon and the Hierophant card is called Jupiter. I believe this deck is currently out of production in the US.

The book offers a brief introduction to the cards, a brief interpretation of each card, and ends with several card spreads and how to perform them.

Its a nice little book as a collectors piece specific to the Swiss I JJ deck (which I love), but in terms of material it offers only slightly more depth than you would get in the small booklets that come packaged with Tarot decks. Very basic information here if you are completely new to Tarot and have the Swiss deck.
