Dali. Tarot, Book Book

Description

Legend has it that when preparing props for the James Bond film Live and Let Die, producer Albert Broccoli commissioned Surrealist maestro Salvador Dali to create a custom deck of tarot cards.

Inspired by his wife Gala, who nurtured his interest in mysticism, Dali 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 Dali 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), Dali 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 Dali's inimitable custom set, complete with a booklet by renowned German tarot author Johannes Fiebig offering:an introduction to Dali's life and the project's making-ofa comprehensive explanation of each card's composition, its meaning, and practical advicestep-by-step instructions on how to perform readingsa jargon-free approach simplifying tarot for the newcomer
