UET-Attila-Blaga

For 25 years I am working on a book about the Tarot. Finally I’m very close to finish the project. Meanwhile I started working also on a board game based on the Tarot deck.
Originally I planned to use the traditional Reader-Waite-Smith deck, but ultimately I changed my mind and I decide it to create my own deck.

35 King of Wands The Golden Tarot of Klimt by Atanas Alexander AtanssovGustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.
