El Gran Tarot Esoterico
This Spanish deck was created by the collaboration of artist Luis Pena Longa and author Maritxu Guler, originally commissioned by the Fournier card publishing company in 1977 to honour the six hundredth anniversary of Tarot’s appearance in Europe.
Though the artwork here certainly evokes the earlier Marseille deck, closer inspection will make it apparent that this deck is something else entirely, something modern, striking, and unique. The artwork style is simple and vibrant but is undeniably strange, notably rich with allusions to Hebrew myths and symbolism.
78 fully illustrated cards, including 22 Majors and 56 Minors.
2.4 x 4.3-inch cards in a simple card tuck box, including a small booklet of divinatory explanations of each card and brief instructions on the history and methods of tarot reading.
