Learning Lenormand by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin covers the history of the Lenormand cards, and also teaches the reader how to use them. The authors cover all aspects of the cards that a beginner to master reader would need to know.
“The Lenormand deck is a traditional French fortune-telling deck dating back to about 1850. It uses thirty-six cards, each with a symbolic image. This is the first comprehensive English workbook that explains its history, how to choose a deck, and how to use it for both fortune-telling and personal insight. It features the authors’ signature methods of skill development and card-reading techniques to answer any question. This is the first well-researched book that fully explains and teaches the correct and unique methods of using the cards.” – Learning Lenormand
Learning Lenormand does in fact teach the beginner quite a lot about Lenormand cards. I would even bet that people who have been using them for years could learn a thing or two from reading this book. It is well researched, and fun to read. It is also an excellent reference book when learning how to give readings.
As someone who hasn’t ever read this style of cards before, I was fully mesmerized by learning about it, and want to buy a new deck to try it out ASAP. I’ve used plenty of different style of tarot and oracle cards, and is just something I am excited to use, hopefully soon.
If you want to learn how to read Lenormand cards, this is the guidebook you are looking for!
