Review: 365 Tarot Spreads by Sasha Graham

by innowen on November 18, 2014

365tarotspreadsDisclaimer: I received an eARC from netgalley in exchange for a review.

Sasha Graham’s 365 Tarot Spreads is an interesting study in creating tarot spreads. She wrote the book to fill the gap that appeared on bookshelves, noticing that there was no “daily tarot spread” book out there. Each spread in this book, then, was created by her (or some other notable tarot alums) for practitioners to use on a daily basis. Many of the spreads were created based on: historical information, pagan or astrological date info, or literary and pop cultural reference.

What I liked: This book should be a quick read. Graham includes a wide variety of spreads and topics to fit any request. Readers could use it as a tarot-a-day study guide or just flip through the pages until a spread they need pops up. As one who loves designing spreads for her own uses, I looked at this book as a way to see the wide variety of spreads that a single person (in this case, Sasha) could create. It’s a highly creative volume of spreads.

What I didn’t like: This book took me forever to read. The layout includes so much side-bar information that it’s a bit overwhelming and cluttered. After the book came out and I purchased the epub file, I found the file horribly designed. The spread layout images were tiny and the formatters attempted to design to the print layout, rather than to the device. Ugh. It really made reading the book on a device harder than it should have been.

Bottom Line: Love tarot spreads? Then add 365 Tarot Spreads to your collection. I’ve flagged many of the spreads that I’m sure I’ll look back to over and over again for my own use. I also recommend that you buy the print version of the book (yes, it’s huge and heavy) and skip the eBook due to the layout issues. Other than that… it’s a great resource for any tarot library.

Attendees received a Mibramig Magical Tarot deck and Intuitive Tarot workbook. Soon after, I was called into the main […]
