Salvador Dali's Illustrations For The Twelve Signs Of The Zodiac

Salvador Dali wasn’t known for being a particularly spiritual person, although he believed that he was a reincarnation of his dead older brother.

He believed in mathematics and science over religion or superstition, but he was also known for capitalizing on a trend or two in order to make a quick buck.

The profit driven side of Dali led him to create an illustrated version of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, which were released in 1967 as limited edition lithographs meant to capitalize on public's renewed interest in all things astrological.

Dali replaced the Cancer crab with a lobster, as an homage to his earlier works, but left the rest of the Zodiac icons virtually unchanged, his surrealist vision focused on the use of color and texture rather than the radical reconstruction of their forms.
