British-born Mexican surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) created a spectacular Major Arcana tarot deck in the 1950s, laying gold and silver leaf over vibrant colours.

First exhibited in 2018 at the artist's centenary exhibition at the Museo de Arte ContemporŠneo in Monterrey, Mexico, this extraordinary work inspired a book published in 2020. This second, considerably expanded edition explores in even greater detail the central position that the Tarot occupied in Carrington's work. The volume includes an introductory text by her son, Gabriel Weisz, recalling his mother's long involvement with the Tarot, followed by essays offering a detailed analysis of each card: their symbolism, their relationship to other works, and their iconographic origins in ancient esoteric beliefs, including the Mesoamerican influences of the artist's adopted country.
