The Minors are the Big Turn Off for many potential Tarot de Marseille readers; but, we think the Minors will be a Turn On, once you see the different ways of interpreting the Minor Arcana that offer far more possibilities than the cartoon scenes of the Rider-Waite Tarot and its clones, or the psychedelic hodgepodge of the Crowley Thoth Tarot Minors....
