Salvador Dali Loved Tarot

Filed in Tarot

Dali TarotA most rare and unusual Tarot deck – Legend has it that when preparing props for the James Bond film “Live or Let Die,” producer Albert Brocoli commissioned Salvador Dalí to create a custom deck of Tarot cards; the Spanish surrealist painter is said to have started work on the project, and when the contractual deal fell through, continued the work on his own.

 

The Dali Tarot – 78 original works of art from the Tarot-mad Taurean artist & how COOL is it to think of ultra-Scorp James Bond dealing himself a Dali Tarot spread.

No cards, but possess the book…Of the Dali Tarot, and it is so lovely to own especially as a wonderful friend gave it. Thank you for the images.

The oldest greeting cards we have today date back to the 14th century, made somewhere in Europe. The culture of giving greeting cards developed in the 19th century when printing press came into the picture. Greeting cards, these days, are of various types. These types include standard greeting cards, photo greeting cards, personalized greeting cards, reusable greeting cards, electronic greeting cards etc. The pictures and messages in greeting cards come in various styles, which range from fine arts to profane. Although in today’s world, technology has made everything so fast and easy, but the charm and warmth of sending a… Read more »

Picked this up at a convention several years ago–bit of a spendy indulgence but that’s almost fitting being Taurus sun & moon, right?

The set came in a velvet box and has gold edges on each of the cards–very swank. Still prefer my Ramses deck for actual readings, but the Dali deck is very nice to look at.

I actually own the James Bond deck designed by Fergus Hall for the movie. Like all good decks, I didnt buy it – it came to me in a random box of miscellania. I havent used it for readings – but now the topic has been raised I think I shall give it a spin!

Love Dali. I also love that he absolutely destroyed this 1950’s game show with his guest appearance…

These are so fantastic! I love Dali, I love that he acknowledged his wife as being the reason for his success (or he would have just been a mad person instead of a mad artist) he seems like he was a good guy. This is important to me as I get ick vibes from Picasso and don’t enjoy his work as a result.

I think these are the only cards I have seen apart from Rider W deck that draw me. Thanks for the tip!

I know there have been Salvador Dali decks for sale on ebay. I have always wanted one!

Love Live and Let Die…Jane Seymour as Solitaire is one of my favorite Bond Girls (the classic Ursula Andress & Grace Jones as May Day being the other two!).

As a complete James Bond freak (the books, not the movies, although Daniel Craig is superb and Casino Royale is so far the only movie which portrays Bond properly) I feel moved to point out that Bond would never have anything to do with Tarot cards. He’s a ruthless pragmatist, and Fleming writes him as a character who doesn’t even believe in gamblers luck, despite being a committed gambler, and as a man who really only lives for the present. Anything like Tarot he would dismiss as old maids business. He’s not at all charming. Craig has him nailed- rough… Read more »

Nice cards. And that reminds me… I need to find out which tarot card could refer to reincarnation. I’m writing a screenplay and I need some images (found in a collage) that hint at someone being reborn after they die. Wheel of fortune, maybe but there must be more cards that allude to it… any ideas mystic community??

Agree with Taurean Alchemist here. Judgement all the way. The figures rising out of their coffins, holding their arms out in exultation, coming back to their true selves… (Rider Waite version)

Major Arcana 20 – Judgement makes sense to me.

I’d say death and the tower. Yes they look terrible but they are symbols for rebirth in ones self. Beginnings of new adventures and a new self awareness into ones self as well.
The tower symbolises the end of falseness and things build on unstable grounds to start again on more secure grounds and to learn quickly.
Death is similar but more of letting go of falsehoods from the past and the end of an old cycle to start a new one.

I hoped that helped. I’m only new to tarot (a few months or so).
