t invisibly blended with details of Ancient Egyptian life. The cards aren't clones of the Rider-Waite or Thoth or Marseilles symbols, but are wholly new images. As such, I found it easier to work with these cards if I put aside memorised standard meanings and used the cards on their own terms, instead of trying to fit them into a pre-existing tarot interpretations.

In the minor arcana, the suit elements are rarely obtrusive, as instead they have worked into the background of human interaction and behaviour. The changes that have been made to fit the cards into an Egyptian mould mean that some of the images don't correspond exactly to familiar archetypes. Most do, but there are some apparently arbitrary changes that stood out, such as the Four of Swords, usually a card of rest and recuperation, shows an ox just about to be skinned and has the meaning of 'Holocaust. Necessary sacrifice. Self-censorship.' The Seven of Pentacles has qualities more often associated with the Six; that of altruism, gift, help g iven or received, while the Six itself stands for risky or compromising action.

These cards are designed to be used both upright and reversed. The booklet has printed reversal meanings, and the backs of the cards show a mirrored image of the Pharaoh. The front has only standard tarot titles, in six languages. The majors have an Egyptian association but this is only printed in the companion booklet and not on the cards

The absence of traditional or esoteric tarot symbology in the Ramses Tarot limits the usefulness of the deck as a tarot study tool, but this deck should be of interest to Egyptologists and readers who appreciate fully illustrated and real-looking cards.
