Tarot Universal Dali, Jubilee Edition Deck & Book Set

by Salvador Dali & Johannes Fiebig

Dali Tarot Jubilee Edition Deck & Book Set
Price: $49.90
Or, get the original, expensive, gilt-edged version.

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 3.1 x 5.5 inches; or 79 x 140 millimeters.

Back of card: Gold, with white border. Fancy geometric design turns out to be Dali's signature, repeated maybe a hundred times. Can be inverted.

Book included: Yes: Dali Tarot, by Johannes Fiebig, was issued on the 100th anniversary of Dali's birth (1905 - 1989). It has 192 pages & measures 5.9 x 8.65 inches, or 15 x 22 cm. Each card is shown in full color, on a full page (larger than the actual cards). The interpretations for the cards are elementary in nature & do not cover inversion. Of interest are the biographical notes on Dali, his life & times, and how he came to produce his remarkable tarot deck. Source materials for all the details shown in the cards are given, so far as they are known. Regrettably, I could not find the word "ecoplasm" in the book (see below).

Publisher: NEGSA Naipes Comas & Tallers Grafics Soler (both Barcelona, Spain), and Koenigsfurt Verlag, Krummwisch, Germany. Cards printed in Spain, box printed in Germany.

Also Includes: Numbered certificate for the Jubilee Edition.

Comments: A Canadian customer wrote to say that Dali created the deck as a love offering to his Russian wife, Gala. According to her, each card has three layers: The "top" layer draws upon classical western art. The second layer is the traditional symbolic meaning. The third is a "shadow" layer, called an ecoplasm. On some cards Dali parodies himself & his work, such as the Magician card featuring Dali himself & the famous "melting watch", above. If you're curious, the deck did nothing for me. I seem to have tired of Dali some time ago, which is my loss. Apologies.
