The Tarot, Magic, Alchemy, Hermeticism, and Neoplatonism is my newest book. It incorporates the material that was in Alchemy and the Tarot and The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination, but updates the facts and, as you can tell by the title, covers a lot more material—about three times as much, with 680 pages and over 300 illustrations.

This book is intended to be a guide to my Alchemical Tarot and my Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery. It is the companion book for both decks. But it also covers the Tarot of Marseilles and The Waite Smith Tarot. So that it is a guide to the Tarot for anyone using any deck. Each chapter starts with a full-page illustration on the left hand page and the text on the right hand page. The first two pages of each chapter are illustrated below:
