About Salvador Dalí Tarot Card Gift Set

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. The author Johannes Fiebig​,​ born in Cologne in 1953​,​ is one of the most successful authors on Tarot and a leading expert of the psychological interpretation of symbols and oracles. His main field of interest focuses on the use of Tarot and other symbolic languages as humanistic​,​ psychological tools.
