The Magician, Death, and the Moon

Surrealism meets Symbolism in Salvador Dalí’s tarot deck
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 booklet by renowned German tarot author Johannes Fiebig offering:
  • 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

More than I could’ve wished for!

Sara, November 05, 2021
In LOVE with this beautiful Dalí tarot-set!!! Everything feels extremely luxurious; the box is like a coffee table book but even more decorative, the booklet is so well executed with colorful descriptions and helpful guidelines and the deck itself is wonderfully captivating with its large sized cards in gold and vibrant, beautiful colors. It’s so precious to me I barely dare to use is haha - I’m beyond satisfied!
It’s the perfect gift to treat yourself or anyone else!

A real gem

Jonathan, October 28, 2021
This is not just a book, it is a piece of art, and deservedly has a place of honour on display.

Hathor

Krzysztof, October 28, 2021
Elegant edition for everyone who is interested in Tarot.

Luxurious box

Carla, October 28, 2021
A purple velvet box with golden details with a high quality tarot book, with explanations of all the cards and symbology of the design. The cards are inside a golden carton box and have beautiful details, but are a little thin. It's not intuitive at first to identify the cards (without the help of the book), but it's a question of time.
A great choice for who loves the Dali paintings, even if you use only for collection.

Quality product

Alison, October 27, 2021
The illustrations are beautiful & the cards are fantastic quality. Worth every penny.

Incredible

Amazing quality, Lordy lord! The packaging and attention to detail with this book hasn’t been spared.
Every page is so detailed with intricate stories and descriptions. The accompanying tarot cards are a nice surprise.
It’s certainly a wonderful eye catching coffee table book for all contemporary living spaces.

Exquisite Craftsmanship

PhillipG, October 27, 2021
This is not just a magnificent execution of Dali's rendering of the Tarot using the highest quality paper stock, bindings and manufacturing of the velveteen cover to store the intricately detailed cards and accompanying book it is a work of art to be admired and placed in a visible space of your home.

Amazing piece

Amazing piece for any Dali lovers as well as art history.

Very nice book but long waiting

Liliana, October 27, 2021
The book is beautiful and reflects what I imagined. My only complaint would be the waiting time, instead of march it was delivered in end April (because of stocking problems).

Everything I was expecting

Fernando, October 27, 2021
