The 78 cards were painted by Lady Frieda Harris according to instructions
from the occult scholar, Aleister Crowley. The magnificent art deco work
contains kabalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister
Crowley’s Book of Thoth. The stunning art deco artwork of the Thoth is rich in
Egyptian symbolism. To each of the twenty-two Major Trumps of the tarot is
assigned, by tradition, a Hebrew letter and a path on the Tree of Life, as well
as an astrological sign, element, or planet. The deck also reflects Crowley’s
interest in alchemy and magic. Crowley Thoth Tarot has attracted a worldwide
following, both for its striking beauty and for its complex depiction of occult
knowledge. Since its initial publication in 1969, the deck has never been out of
print. Included with the deck is a booklet of instruction, which contains two
essays by Lady Frieda Harris and a commentary by Stuart R. Kaplan.
This deck no longer features the 2 extra Magus cards.
