Simple Tarot (Studio Edition)
Stone Riley

Here is full deep profound Tarot that is readable on first sight by any intelligent and perceptive person in our modern world.

With its first edition in 1980 - when the New Age was dawning into modern consciousness - Spirit Hill Tarot was the initial master work of a young inventive and determined human being powerfully intent on doing good in changing times. Then for 34 years a few rare copies were handmade by the poet/artist in his studio and given out as gifts to students and beloved colleagues in the Pagan movement. Now - in this very promising but dangerous and crucial time when the foundations of the New Age are being laid - this third edition is offering the practical and spiritual treasures of Tarot to everyone.

The Simple Tarot is admired for its forthright pictures, in a hand drawn Zen or Tao style, for the clear strong bits of semi-haiku poetry printed on the cards that open their traditional Tarot meanings for the reader, and for its deeply kind and loving view of human life. But it is not an Oriental deck. Instead, it uses its adapted foreign style to free the reader and artist from esoteric stale convention so our age's visual wisdom of modern art can enter with subtle unpretentious beauty. Tarot is our time's great key to the ancient Western Mysteries as they really are: the individual, humane, creative and courageous "yoga of the West". And with this version of Tarot an open door invites you to that space.

Literature Enclosed
The deck has two extra cards with clear brief instructions in Riley's favorite method of their use: You help your fellow human beings through the difficulties of our lives by means of passionately sympathetic and intensely conscious conversation, with no prior Tarot experience required.

In addition, a pamphlet with excerpts from the companion book "Documents For The Reader" is packaged with the deck inside its drawstring bag. This enclosed pamphlet enlarges on Riley's recommended method for doing readings, suggests a course of further study, tells the story of how and why he began in Tarot, argues for Tarot as a public good, and closes with a small collection of inspiring poems.

The Deck's Drawstring Bag
Compared with our Standard Edition, the main feature of this Studio Edition is that the cards and pamphlet are in a durable handsome handmade drawstring bag designed and manufactured in the artist's home workshop.
These bags are bias cut and triple stitched to last forever. They have bottom gussets. They open easily but close snug tight. The drawstring is a green four ply worsted cotton crochet yarn with convenient wooden beads on the drawstring ends to make pulling easy. The bag has a large green very distinctive label that is transfer printed on the front side. They have genuine irregular manufacturing irregularities.

The fabric is cut from professional painter's drop cloth Riley has used as studio wall and floor covering, protective bags and wraps for valuable paintings and the like for many years. Of course it's very moisture resistant. It is a dense cotton blend, rough but nubby soft, light canvas weight, natural off-white in color. Laundering by hand is recommended to protect the printed label and the wooden beads.

Product Condition
New unused. Assembled in the artist's home workshop from some best quality high technology printed parts and some homemade parts that have manufacturing irregularities proper to artistic handcrafts.
