About the Book
In this ground-breaking book, you will see for the first time in a century almost one hundred of the original documents and drawings of the Order of the Golden Dawn (founded 1888). The authors reveal the contribution of the Order to the tarot tradition, with unparalleled access to the archives of the original Order.
With images of the tarot drawn from the sketch books of the members, the book also includes previously unpublished work by Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and Florence Farr, in addition to new photographs of W. W. Westcott, and new discoveries of the tarot actually used by the founders of the Order.
A New Dawn for Tarot also includes an image of possibly the only surviving original "tracing board" sized Tarot image used in the Orders initiation rituals.
With commentary by the authors and images lovingly reproduced in full-size on high quality lustre paper to provide the closest experience to handling the original papers of the Order.
