THE TAROT UNIVERSAL. COMMENCED IN 1976 AND FIRST ISSUED IN THIS BRUSHED COTTON BURGUNDY CASE IN 1984.

Edged in gold with a repeated signature motif for the card backs. Dali designed 78 cards; the 22 major arcana, each with their titles to the top in English and the bottom in Spanish and with a Hebrew letter and astrological reference, and 56 cards of the minor arcana. Dali signed each and every artwork with flourish. 
He cast himself as The Magician and King of Gold. He did love gold. And probably was magic. The cards are a kind of crazed cut and paste of actual painting and culture references snipped out of magazines. 
Not such bad news as it might seem. The meaning of El Colgado being sacrifice, release, martyrdom. And hung by the ankle... Shakespeare wrote some of his most insightful sonnets that way.
