Dali Tarot Set
- 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. 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.
- During the early ‘70s, Dalí began working on his own illustrated deck of tarot cards intended for the James Bond film Live and Let Die. Despite the fact that the cards didn’t make it as props in the film (due to Dalí’s high fees), the artist continued working on his designs for 10 years.
- The limited edition Dalí tarot cards were first published in 1984 and have since sold out.
- However, Taschen has recently re-released them as a full 78-card set, complete with a book by German author Johannes Fiebig on Dalí’s life and the making of his tarot series, as well as comprehensive instructions.
