Comments: Texts in English and Russian. Book size: 85x165 mm. Cover made of cardboard, pasted over with binding paper, embroidered on the front. Each copy has its own number and is signed. Stored in a handcrafted box with embroidery on the front. Limited Edition 22 copies (three of them have already been sold and one is reserved)

"The edition is very small — only 22 copies, according to the number of the Major Arcana in the tarot deck. Each copy has a different endpaper color. The book has an open binding, sewn with silk threads. All spreads in the book have a red border. This design decision led me to stitch each spread, because otherwise I would not be able to keep the frame the same size on all sides (when sewing several sheets at once and further trimming, it would not have been possible to make this frame even). For the same reason, I manually crop all the pages. In addition, AlchemistTarot contains symbols, some details of which I embroider by hand. Therefore, all copies are slightly different from each other and each book is special. The book includes a description of the project, as well as divination of the cards, printed on a different type of paper." Julia Borissova
