Original photographs added to the Beinecke Collection

November 1st, 2013

The Beinecke Library at Yale University has just acquired the 78 original photographic prints from which the offset 1st edition of Mountain Dream Tarot was created. These were made in 1975 years before Photoshop, using a variety of darkroom techniques.Yale already owns the unique hand colored and machine stitched deck made a few years earlier. These particular photographs were reprinted for halftone reproduction and display certain revisions I made.
