Iconic Tarot Decks: The History, Symbolism and Design of over 50 Decks

Available

Description

Discover the secrets of the most iconic, mysterious and beautiful tarot decks ever created.

The tarot is a treasury of divination, symbolism and self-knowledge. But who created its mysterious art and meaning, and why? What were they seeking? Does it originate in ancient esoteric wisdom or is this a vain fancy of the occultists? How has the interpretation and meaning of the cards evolved?

In Iconic Tarot Decks , Sarah Bartlett (the international bestselling author) presents 50 of the most iconic tarot decks - telling the powerful stories of how each was devised and designed and showcasing their most exemplary cards. Each of the fifty-six decks in this book holds its own unique symbolism and mystical beginnings: from Visconti-Sforza, the fifteenth-century deck that reveals the fates of two Italian dynasties, to the Sola Busca Tarot, with its esoteric alchemical codex; from the pioneering Rider-Waite-Smith deck to the occult riddles of English Magic Tarot.

With an introduction to reading tarot and useful tips on deciphering the cards - this is the perfect book for collectors, cartomancers, designers, tattoo artists and anyone interested in the art and mystery of tarot .
