Morgan Greer Tarot
‘Most people have the desire to choose the right relationship; want to know what might evolve next and how to prepare for it’. That is the first sentence of the introductory leaflet included in this first edition of the Morgan-Greer Tarot, published in 1979.

Originally published by Morgan & Morgan (later Morgan Press, Inc), The Morgan-Greer deck is now distributed by US Games Systems.
The box shows some wear and tear, all 78 cards are present and in good condition. There are two double cards: Two of Rods and Nine of Pentacles. The so-called instruction book is not a book but a small leaflet that, using keywords, provides information on tarot cards in general.
The cards have no borders and the design follows the pattern introduced by Arthur Edward Waite. The androgynous images result in a somewhat restrained design that, like the cards designed by Pamela Colman Smith under supervision of Arthur Edward Waite, resulted in a powerful set of tarot cards that transports traditional symbolism in a visionary way from the early 1900 into modern times.
