Another incident is on page 316, where it shows two illustrated cards, one of a fox and one of a hunter, and OPENS with " This Racist Black peter deck" however doesn't explain how it's racist or show examples of the cards that are racist...
For the Tarocchi they just shove them under fortune telling and gloss over the fact that they began as a standard deck of cards with trumps. One sentence that would educate anyone reading it.
These are the only sections I've read so far, I'm nervous to read the others.
So ultimately as an Image reference this is a great book, for information, don't trust it.
Unfortunately, I have to take 3 stars off this book for its jaw-droppingly poor quality of construction. the very first time I opened the book, the cover came off. the strips of glue had completely separated from the pages. In all my years of buying and reading books, this is the first time this has happened to me. I recommend interested buyers find a copy in a store to check the condition of the spine.
