Robert Place's Tarot deck, beautifully illustrated in the style of original Renaissance alchemical art, takes you deep into the alchemical mysteries - and unlocks their secrets. The companion book provides a historical overview of both alchemy and the Tarot as well as new insights into the origins of the images on the cards. It demonstrates some traditional spreads, and offers new ones based on the author's personal practice, as well as unique meditation exercises.
An internationally known sculptor and artist, Robert Place has exhibited his paintings in major New York galleries. His work, combined with that of Rosemary Guiley, author of The Mystical Tarot and several books on alchemy and the Western Mystery Traditions, creates a unique Tarot pack that will appeal both to beginners and to more experience Tarot readers. - Publisher's blurb
