This Book devotes two pages to each card in an accompanying deck -essentially it is the explanatory book to the deck. Unless you have bought the deck beforehand this book is not really useful and really the two should be sold together. Unfortunately, the publishers have not issued a second printing of the deck (to my knowledge). I had great difficulty in the past trying to find the cards as the first ed. is almost impossible to get (even the artist of the deck had a limited number left in stock at her store). I think Llewellyn have promised to re-release the deck. Each two pages of the book show a picture (B&W) of one of the 86 cards and an explaination on the opposite page. There are good summaries describing the system of Enochia and how to master Enochia Magic by the method of tarot divination. The book describes a deck which is similar to other traditional style decks with a Major Arcana and then a minor arcana of energies; Air, Earth, Fire and Water -but beyond this similarity the card explore Enochian beliefs. I found the book useful and informative about the different hierarchies existing within Enochia -which is what the cards essentially depict I think. The book does not explain the cards to a depth found in the better tarot books and could do with putting into words the rich personalities found within the cards. But this might defeat the purpose as Enochia is essentially about skrying and creating a dialogue with the cards (most of which are dieties and beings from the non-physical realm) for yourself. Check it out.
This deck is very useful for those who do not have dynamic visual experiences when working aethers or the elemental wathctowers, it can help you establish a visual dictionary for your experiences.
I don't use the booklet by the Schuelers that comes with the deck as I don't think Qabalah should be applied to everything and that the Enochian system stands on it's own, however it is well written. For those who like to tie Qabalah into everything the booklet will be of interest.
