Dali Tarot Cards

“Combining the occult with his own unmistakable sensibility, Dalí’s Tarot is a pastiche of old-world art, surrealism, kitsch, Christian iconography and Greek and Roman sculpture.”
— openculture.com

This extraordinary custom boxed Dalí Tarot deck is exquisite. At just $60, the Tarot makes a unique holiday gift.

First published in a 1984 limited edition that has since long sold out, this lush box set brings back all 78 cards, each dazzling in color, along with a companion book on the making-of and practical instructions. Dalí poses as the Magician, his wife Gala becomes the Empress, and the death of Julius Caesar is reinterpreted as the Ten of Swords in the artist’s extraordinary custom 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. 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,
  • and a jargon-free approach simplifying Tarot for the newcomer.

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.

Deck of 78 Tarot cards with booklet in box, 7.4 x 13 in., 184 pages. ISBN 978-3-8365-7612-3. Multilingual Edition: English, French, German
