An innovative "barely tarot" that resists the attempt to be pigeon-holed. There are 22 "majors" here, but the cards do not bear any titles; the accompanying manual must be consulted for the card names, which are not traditional by any means, but can perhaps be correlated with the more historical labels. The author groups these cards into three "realms" (Stone, Pearl, and Whirlpool) of six cards each, with the remaining two cards acting as "bridge cards" between the realms. The minors -- numbered but without suit names -- are correlated with the four traditional elements. The Ace - Ten cards are unillustrated. The Court cards are completely without titles, making them difficult to distinguish from the majors without the book. Since the pips don't even bear the numerical equivalent of their suit symbols -- each card carries a single image of the suit symbol along with the number -- the majors and courts are intriguingly illustrated, and should be effective in facilitating intuitive readings.
