Before we get started, I just wanted to say that I love the cover design.  Who would have thought a gray book cover could be so pretty?

(Excerpt from the Introduction)

“Our wonderful world of tarot spreads begins with examining the role of spreads in a reading.  After we establish the importance of a spread’s job, then we can discuss how layout design influences a reading by affecting interpretation.”

Did you ever wonder where Tarot spreads came from?  Where are they developed and tested?  Is it necessary to use predetermined spreads/positions when reading Tarot or Oracle cards?  Will a spread be “ruined” if you modify it?  Will the Tarot Gods reach down and snatch you bald headed if you dare to entertain the idea of creating your own Tarot spreads?
