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 booklet by renowned  German tarot author Johannes Fiebig.
