This is AMAZING. Art by THE David Palladini, of the famed Aquarian Tarot. It measures 15 by 22 inches and close to an inch deep. The wood has been carved and the artwork is in good condition except for the upper left flower next to the C where there is some color loss.
A simply perfect Capricorn gift, and a rarity.
David Palladini is an American illustrator, best known for his Aquarian Tarot decks and children’s book illustrations, especially his illustrations for The Girl Who Cried Flowers by Jane Yolen. His style is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau illustrations of Alfons Mucha and Aubrey Beardsley.
Born in Italy and emigrated to America as a child, David Palladini’s dual cultural background is expressed in the lush creativity of his work. After studying art, photography, and film at New York’s Pratt Institute, David’s first professional assignment was as a photographer for the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.
