From 1970-75 I created what is believed to be the first complete photographic tarot card deck in the history of the cards. The original deck consisted of hand-colored photographic prints on fiber paper machine-stitched between 2 layers of frosted mylar. The cards are 4×5″ and encased in a velvet lined canvas folio. The Cary Card Collection is one of the world’s largest. It is located in the Beinecke Library at Yale University. The deck has gone through several transformations over the years. The first offset edition was published in the mid-70′s and has long been out of print. (There are four copies left. Email for current price and availablity) You can purchase a second edition deck directly from the store at this website…own a little bit of history!
