The dragon, an image of primitive force and power, is present in the imagination of all civilizations. Inspired by myths from every corner of the globe, this imaginative deck features the mystical beast and its many forms amid diverse iconography from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.
I guess the easiest way to describe this deck is in three short sentences: Do you like dragons? Do you like the Tarot? You’re going to like this deck.
Over the past couple of decades there has been a movement to use the Tarot not as a model of spirituality and divination, but as an inspiration for a set of related or serial artworks. Although I have loved the artwork of Salvador Dali, I have always felt his deck was more for collectors of his art than for Tarot work.
So I have to admit that I approached this deck with more than a little trepidation. I feared this was just going to be an excuse to pump out illustrations based on Smith’s artwork with dragons stuck into them. Happily, I was quite wrong.
It is very clear that creator Manfredi Toraldo and artist Severino Baraldi put a great deal of thought into the creation of this deck and the meaning of each card. The LWB (Little White Book), which has an unusual landscape presentation, exemplifies this thought by spending more space describing the cards than giving their meanings. After all, the meanings are available anywhere, but the specific images here are unique. . . read more.
