This is a review of both the CBD Tarot de Marseille (Yoav ben Dov, 2010) and the companion book, Tarot: The Open Reading (sold separately). The full title of the deck is 'CBD Tarot de Marseille: A faithful reproduction of the traditional Tarot based on the standard deck printed by Nicholas Conver 1760, restored and adapted by Yoav Ben Dov.' I just call it 'CBD Tarot', which is an acronym for 'Conver-Ben Dov'.
Ben Dov says he didn't set out to create a tarot deck, but rather to write a book about tarot. During the course of writing the book, he realized during the process of copyright negotiations that he might as well create a deck himself. Using several Conver decks, he kept the original lines, including their bizarre anomalies, and selected shades of the original colours. If it was red in Conver, it's red in CBD, but of course Ben Dov had to choose the shade. He also made adjustment to faces to be more appealing to modern eyes. He commissioned an illustrator to draw the lines of the original by hand, then a digital graphic designer to correct line details and add titles and colour. He then tweaked the designs digitally himself, and there we have the CBD Tarot de Marseille.Read more ›
I have been waiting for a book like this for ages. It has really opened up the world of Marseilles tarots for me and I am finally managing to make sense of the cards. I love the way it is written, it feels like he is talking to you directly. The words just flow and he explains things really clearly. When I had finished reading it I went straight back to the beginning and started to read it again, Kindle in one hand, and his deck in the other, because I enjoyed it so much.
I feel it is also worth mentioning that this book has an excellent linked table of contents which is often missing in other Kindle books.
If a printed version did become available I would happily purchase that as well. Love this book. Fabulous!
