As others have said, these aren't particularly useful for dedicated reading or divination. Too many highly unrelated words per card. Taking the book and cards as largely unrelated makes each its own sublime joke.
If you are determined to do readings with them however, I'd recommend ignoring the book outright and just going by what the card feels like to you in relation to the subject. Perhaps The Child is warning of a foolish mistake. Perhaps The Limb is a harbinger of betrayal by a trusted colleague. The sky's the limit when the symbols don't have a basis.
That said, The Black Doll has a stupendously eerie and simple meaning that I intend to use as-is: what you most fear, is drawing near...
The box is very sturdy, and the cards are as well. Enclosed is a little white book that explains the various card meanings.
The only annoyance is that the cards are not numbered, so it's a little bit of a hassle to rifle through the booklet to decipher meanings.
