Tarot Cats by Ana Juan
Fun, Sassy, and sophisticated. Ana Juan cleverly captures the bemusing sensibilities that endure us to our feline friends and allows them to take us on a playful romp through the Tarot Lexicon. The careful use of color makes for cards that pop in all the right ways, the artistic equivalent to a purring cat on your lap. Loosely following Rider-Waite-Smith symbolism, this deck is equally at home as a reading deck or as a new, frolicsome edition to your collection.

After graduating in Fine Arts from Universidad Politécnica in Valencia (1982), Ana moved to Madrid at the height of the movida madrileña and in the early 1980s she collaborated with magazines such as La Luna and Madriz (where "for the first seven months of the magazine's life, [she] was the only regular female artist" and for which "she authored seventeen comic book works" and illustrated many scripts for other artists).
In 1991 she temporarily moved to Paris and exhibited in Geneve and New York; in 1994 she received a fellowship by the Japanese publishing house Kodansha and lived in Japan for three months.
In 1998 and 1999 she was awarded the Gold Medal (category: Illustration) by the Society of Newspaper Design and on September 24, 2010 she was awarded the “Premio Nacional de Ilustración” by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
She currently creates her own books (texts and illustrations), exhibits her work all over the world (Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy…) and contributes to many Spanish and international magazines. She has also illustrated many Isabel Allende's book covers for Plaza e Janés (Penguin Random House), among which: Retrato en Sepia, Eva Luna, El cuaderno de Maya, De amor y de sombra.
