Hi there…Ronda here
David, Kate and I were working on Menage A Tarot (first episode drops soon!! Stay tuned!) when a book came to mind.
So of course I completely screwed up the title and author. The author “Ledbetter” was actually from a different history book, not at all related to cards.
I think the information about the relationship between Tarot and modern gaming cards can be found here:
- A French Method of Fortune Telling by Cards – A.E. Waite
- The Pictorial Key to the Tarot – A.E. Waite.
If I discover anything more, I’ll keep you all posted. Sorry for the error!
