"A world-renowned artist, physicist, and fingerstyle guitarist whose works have been showcased in galleries around the globe, Arthur Taussig has decided to take the plunge into the rich polyverse of Tarot, with some stunning results.

Mixing decades of scientific inspiration with an artistic vision dripping with visceral beauty, Taussig weaves and wends the more classic Kabbalistic philosophies and Jungian psychology with a deeply immersive, somewhat surrealist vision of the Tarot. Combining mostly monochrome, greyscale shading with vibrant splashes of color and texture, he accents key symbols within each card in a way that leaps out at the querent, playing with eye and perspective in an emotional dance of wisdom and fervor. The images seem to emanate from the cards in ways that makes one think their fingers could find physical structures within the otherwise flat pictures. The accompanying book is a gem all its own, with well-researched and highly illuminating explanations of the curious figures and icons contained within each card.

A testament to the creative potency within archetypal images, The Alchemical Visions Tarot is a breathtaking tour through universal space both external and internal." --The Witches' Almanac

"The Alchemical Visions Tarot aptly titles this surreal journey through the alchemical underworld of the Jungian unconscious. Taussig, a world-renowned artist, and highly-schooled tour guide of this inner terrain gives us tarots for deep contemplation of the synchronous layers of the whole self, both naked, sub-cutaneous, and royally manifest in the vast symbolic heritage of Tarot. His impressive knowledge-base of associations pertaining to Western mysticism and depth psychology, coupled with highly commanding artistry and visual interpretation, bring a powerful new synthesis to the contemporary Tarot archives." - Arthur Rosengarten, Ph.D., author of Tarot and Psychology: Spectrums of Possibility,Tarot of the Nine Paths: Advanced Tarot for the Spiritual Traveler, and Tarot of the Future: Raising Spiritual Consciousness.
