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.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

from Foreword by Rachel Pollack: Robert Place's deck stands out by the elegance and charm of his art. The pictures speak to us directly, yet with a great subtlety. Place has taken a large number of alchemical images and unified them in his own style. We should realize, however, that these are authentic scenes. The fact that they also serve as traditional Tarot cards demonstrates more than anything else the connections between the two traditions.
