This visual masterpiece is artfully arranged according to the sequencing of the Major and Minor Arcana, and includes more than 500 cards and works of original art from around the world in the ultimate exploration of a centuries-old art form.

This 600-year-old tradition of tarot “reflects not only a history of seekers, but our journey of artistic expression and the ways we communicate our collective human story.”


“For many in the West, Tarot exists in the shadow place of our cultural consciousness, a metaphysical tradition assigned to the dusty glass cabinets of the arcane. Its history, long and obscure, has been passed down through secret writing, oral tradition, and the scholarly tomes of philosophers and sages. Hundreds of years and hundreds of creative hands—mystics and artists often working in collaboration—have transformed what was essentially a parlor game into a source of divination and system of self-exploration, as each new generation has sought to evolve the form and reinterpret the medium.”

Author Jessica Hundley is a writer, director, producer, author, editor, and consultant.
