An exploration of the Major Arcana tarot deck created by Leonora Carrington in the 1950s. The tarot cards exhibit Carrrington's Surrealist vision combined with esoteric elements from Buddhism, mysticism, the occult, mythology, witchcraft, and astrology. Each card is illustrated and analysed. The book includes a revised essay, which places the tarot cards within the artist's wider oeuvre, and an introduction by Carrington's son Gabriel Weisz. This is a welcome new edition after the first edition sold out immediately.
