Second Edition Companion Document

The companion document for the Marchetti Tarot second edition is offered here in its entirety, along with references of each card. The text by Lee Bursten specifically discusses the imagery of this deck, but also does so within its context and relationship to the Rider Waite Smith deck upon which it is based. The preface section provide context and connections to more traditional tarot concepts and historical sources, some of which will be familiar to more experienced Tarot readers and can be skipped, but by including it here, this document may be of additional assistance to a wider tarot audience .
