The cards were painted by Lady Frieda Harris according to the instructions of occult scholar Aleister Crowley. The magnificent art deco work features Kabbalistic and astrological attributes described in Aleister Crowley's Book of Thoth. The stunning Thoth art deco work is rich in Egyptian symbolism. Each of the twenty-two Great Arcanes of the tarot is assigned, according to tradition, a Hebrew letter and 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. The Crowley Thoth Tarot has attracted scores of fans around the world, both for its striking beauty and its intricate depiction of occult knowledge.
