5.0 out of 5 stars The depth of Dali 27 May 2007
Verified Purchase
The Salvador Dali Tarot Deck is an absolute must for all Tarot enthusiasts. It combines traditional Tarot symbolism with Dali's unique artistry; boldness with subtlety; fantasy with reality; vagueness with utmost clarity - each depiction is absolutely stunning. The cards are just beautiful, and beautifully packaged. I have a large collection of Tarot cards but was completely unprepared for a deck that would leave me speechless with awe. Dali has achieved a work of great depth and profundity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lavishly painted cards, each one a work of art. 15 July 2001
By A Customer
This deck is a full set of gold edged tarot cards, each painted by Dali. He paints himself as The Magician, and he weaves his magic over this lavishly exquisite deck. Yhe cards depict scenes which are easy to read for the meanings of the cards for beginners, and also hold symbols for the more experienced reader. the shapes on the cards make them ideal for scrying into. Each card also has the corresponding astrological, Hebrew and numbers on them. For anyone seriously into the Tarot this is a beautiful pack of cards that will give you immense pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dali 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Singular cards, full of Dalis concepts, beliefs and pictures of his wife. Rachel Pollack has a book on them but they are few and far between, probably the best way is to use them and teach yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars the most beautiful cards i've seen 26 Oct 1999
By k. j. s. - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this deck at the Dali musuem in St. Petersburg. They are lovely, large, and with gold-gilted edges. Each card was designed by Dali and has his signature. It is somewhat difficult to read these cards if you are used to the Waite decks or other traditional decks, but definitely worth studying. Probably not for the beginner. It is interesting to see his perspective on each of the cards. The book that comes with the set is very limited in content, and covers only the major arcana; minor cards are not addressed. It is written in several languages. I would recommend this deck if creative art and new symbolism attract you. I love them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Beautiful Deck, HIghly Recommended for Dali fans! 13 July 2004
By J. Horvath - Published on Amazon.com
This Tarot deck looks stunning. The Gold Boarders add to the awe of Dali's Paintings. If you like Dali Art these cards are a must for you. If you do not actually use the cards it might be a smart idea to just get the Salvador Dali Tarot Book by Rachel Pollack as everycard is beautifully printed in full size on a full page. That way you not only get to see the cards but also get a little explanation of each. If you cant find the book, get these cards!! Highly Recommended!! Great Deck!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable deck 13 July 2004
By Katsurina - Published on Amazon.com
This deck is a gorgeous item. It's absolutely perfect for any fan of Dali, because it gives them 78 original works of art to appreciate and delve into.
Someone with a lot of experiance in tarot reading would appreciate the original and insigtful symbolism that stays true to the tarot, as well as love gold rimming. The box is remarkable. Many people might discard the box for a cheaper deck and use their own, special way of storing them. With this deck, you wouldn't dare. The cards are very large, which means shuffling requires some getting used to, but the larger cards somehow seem more appropriate in a tarot reading.
The deck is primarily spanish, with english as a secondary (major arcana are labled in both languages, but face cards are only spanish, so it might be worth remembering the spanish words for page and knight before doing a reading.) The booklet included with the deck is printed in 4 languages, including french and german.
One note on the book: Don't rely on it. Dali's symbolism can be a bit overwealming and difficult to understand for someone new to the tarot, making this an intimidating deck for biginners. All the booklet has is the meanings of the major arcana and a small description the the symbolism dali was using for each of them. It also shows 3 spreads, but gives no information on how to read them. In fact the most useful fart of the booklet may be the 3 paragraph introduction. If you are a beginner and want a guide, use any book, teacher or online resource you choose to get you started, the included booklet would be insufficient.
For an experianced Tarot reader, this is sure to be a delightful deck.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Dalinian Delicacy 10 Jun 2002
By Tamara Botzum - Published on Amazon.com
As a Dali fan and tarot reader, I find these cards to be a sheer joy to view, ponder and read. This deck is a prize for any Dali fan. They are beautiful as well as puzzling. They are not easy to read and shuffle, but it can be done. There appears to be plenty of attitude around this deck. And why not? Dali, after all, was all about attitude. There is a companion book by Rachel Pollack that is good to own if you wish to study these cards. It is out of print, but can be found online.

5.0 out of 5 stars A reader's opinion 12 Jan 2009
By Maggie Luna - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this deck in 1992 from a business professor who claimed to have exclusive marketing rights in the U.S. I have used these cards exclusively since then in my readings.

I disagree with the comments that these cards should be simply a "collector's item". I find them the simplest and most emotionally powerful cards to read. The visual images resonate with me more than any other deck, which allows for more accurate readings.

I am self taught. I do not read tarot professionally, and I am not an art critic and have not studied Dali extensively. I beleive these cards are an amazing tool for someone who is a serious tarot reader. They are not just an "art" collectible. They are meant to be used!
