Like most older Lenormand readers, my induction to the method came through the Grand Tableau. Despite its intimating size, there are indeed benefits to learning through the GT. However, most neophytes baulk at the idea.

For this reason, I have collected several small draws (between three and fifteen cards). Most come from classical cartomancy. You will find both instructions and real examples.

In selecting these patterns, I have consciously chosen spreads that have not only have proven useful, but ones that help build the skills needed to approach the Grand Tableau with confidence.
