In her latest project, Caitlin Matthews, a widely-published expert on Celtic spirituality and Tarot, turns her attention to a long-forgotten cartomancy oracle that is gaining popularity in Europe and America.

This attractive kit comes with an accompanying book that will help beginners become fluent in Lenormand. Accessible yet comprehensive, the book offers indepth commentaries for each card, making interpretation simple and enlightening. Practical advice on how lay out your reading is also provided. Perfect for beginners and professional readers alike, this valuable kit provides everything you need to master the all-seeing power of the Lenormand deck.
