As issued by Vertigo (a DC Comics imprint), this is a very attractive box set that features:
- 78 cards that form the Tarot deck with art by renowned Sandman comic artist, Dave McKean
- 128 page Tarot book by Rachel Pollack, featuring new cover art by Dave McKean (with an introduction by noted and widely celebrated Sandman author, Neil Gaiman)
This set, now out-of-print and increasingly hard to find in exquisite condition, is very much worth the hunt as well as the price that may accompany the find. While initially sold at MSRP $29.95, for those willing to search it out, deals are there to be discovered.
Each card in the deck is on quality stock paper and each image both rises from the card, as well as draws the viewer into its unique and wonderful world of dreamy imagery. If I have a critique of this box set it is only that the book is a wee bit too small which unfortunately also contributes to the minuscule font size throughout the book...which is too bad as both Neil Gaiman's introduction and especially Rachel Pollack's text is uniquely informative.
Ultimately, I maintain this set to be most highly recommended.
