The intro pages on the web site seem well-written and I am interested. Probably most people here also read the history section at AT, where there is some discussion with foolish about the Cathar connection, the hypothesis of his book http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.ph ... ost2490817

thanks for your interest, debra. one of the things i hope readers of this book will find interesting is not just the historical background, but more so the way the interpretation of the cards' imagery fits into that context. this, of course is open to interpretation, but it's an area in which i have enjoyed investigating.
