Morgan-Greer Tarot

[Empress] [Ace of Pentacles] The Morgan-Greer Tarot was created by the artist Bill Greer under the direction of Lloyd Morgan. Greer was inspired by the images on the Rider-Waite deck and the work of Paul Foster Case. As Greer says, "There are certain colors used as dictated by Case for symbolic reasons. I sought to incorporate these colors and elaborate, so as to create an immediate emotional reaction to each card even before an image could be looked at in depth." This deck was first published by Morgan Press in 1979. There are no borders on the cards, and only the major arcana and court cards have titles. The figures on the Morgan-Greer Tarot are often large and seem to be close to the reader. There are full scenes on every card. There is a separate companion book for this deck called The Ancestral Path Tarot.
