Salvador Dalí Tarot Card Gift Set
Description
Legend has it that when preparing props for the James Bond film Live and Let Die, producer Albert Broccoli commissioned Surrealist maestro Salvador Dalí to create a custom deck of tarot cards. Inspired by his wife Gala, who nurtured his interest in mysticism, Dalí eagerly got to work, and continued the project of his own accord when the contractual deal fell through.

The work was published in a limited art edition in 1984 that has since long sold out, making Dalí the first renowned painter to create a completely new set of cards. Drawing on Western masterpieces from antiquity to modernity (including some of his own), Dalí seamlessly combined his knowledge of the arcane with his unmistakable wit. The result is a surreal kaleidoscope of European art history.

TASCHEN resurrects all 78 cards in a fresh celebration of Dalí’s inimitable custom set, complete with a book by renowned German tarot author Johannes Fiebig. The Salvador Dalí. Tarot Card Gift Set includes:
  • A lavishly illustrated book in English, French and German.
  • Deck of 78 Dalí-designed tarot cards.
  • An introduction to Dalí’s life and the project’s making-of.
  • A comprehensive explanation of each card’s composition, its meaning, and practical advice.
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to perform readings.
  • A jargon-free approach simplifying tarot for the newcomer.
  • Comes in a lavish, collectors item box that keeps everything together neatly.
