Book Card Meaning


The symbolism of  the Tarot card Book stretches from those ancient times, when privileged groups of people were able to write and read, it was a very small number from the general mass of the population, usually priests, magicians, rulers. Because of the fact that paper and printing were expensive, then books were created only for important reasons. The book was protected as an important artifact and only a few had access to it, since books were created from natural materials that could quickly deteriorate. Reading the book was a kind of magical act of communion with the accumulated wisdom, which carried the light of knowledge and helped all other people.
