The Herbal Tarot by Michael Tierra and Candis Cantin

I came across this deck few years ago. I have to say, I rarely used it till now.
The interpretation of each card matched up with the many different herb/spice is both inspiring and clever.
Though I have been trying to track down a larger copy of the instruction book, as the print is so tiny it makes reading the various herb uses difficult.
This deck uses the popular Rider-Waite deck as it's main model, which is the most widely recognizable tarot deck out there.
The choice of herb/spice with each card is based on the combination of medical use for the herb, folklore and astrology match up.
This is a treat for collectors, and a great way to learn what herb/spice is each used for.
