The Surrealist Tarot was created during the summer of 2010 by the artist, novelist, and filmmaker Ari Bach. The red/green colorblind artist’s background in esoteric and occult symbolism allowed him to break from tarot tradition, coming up with his own loose system not tied to Thoth, Rider, or any other methodology. Surrealist was only the second known deck to ever use the LaVey Personality Synthesizer in its deck structure.

- Elemental and Tree of Life correspondences for this deck are shown merely as a general guideline for those who like to use these systems. The artist did not structure the deck around these correspondences, and would also like to add that he will never tell a reader how to manage the cards. Even the Major Arcana numbers were added only as a reference, and not according to the artist’s designs.
