The Tell Me Tarot is designed to make the wisdom of tarot accessible to anyone.

Originally published in 2004 in Hebrew and English, it has also been reprinted in 2008 by US Games.
The NOW Lenormand was designed to help the process of learning to read Lenormand-style decks.

The deck also includes extra Man and Woman cards to allow for more diverse and inclusive readings. Self-published and available from the artist.
The Wild Rose Training Deck is designed to be a first deck so the reader can get used to the tarot, and then comfortably read other decks. It has 78 cards with simple tarot imagery on the right, and a list of meaning phrases on the left of the card.
The Zolar Astrological Tarot is a strange double-sided deck of 56 cards that touts itself as 'four decks in one'. The minor arcana (and regular playing card symbols) are on one side, the majors and astrological symbols on the other side.
