About this deal

In place of the trumpeting Angel we see stylized figures of the deities from the Stele of Revealing and “The Book of the Law”. The Two of Cups (esoteric title Love), is beautifully portrayed by two fountains of water (silver on the left, gold on the right).

Although Lady Harris knew little about Tarot and its symbolism, under the guidance of Crowley she transposed all subtilities of his ideas into her paintings. Originally published in 1969, it has since come out in several different sizes and versions (including varied coloring).

This is a controversial deck, to be sure – in large part because Crowley himself is such a controversial figure (by choice). Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. But, as I began to learn the Thoth, I often found myself inexplicably drawn to a certain aspect of the card (a symbol, a color, a picture) that would tend to add more specificity or color to the card's standard meaning. For those students interested in the Golden Dawn, or in esoteric imagery, this is a wonderful deck to study. Note: The deck was not published in the lifetimes of either Aleister Crowley or Lady Frieda Harris, aside from a limited edition of 200 copies that Lady Frieda Harris herself had printed.

they’re beautiful and amazing and i’ve never in my life had a deck that feLT LIKE THIS holy crapppp i genuinely cannot get over them. Which is the novelty of this deck, but there is a great deal behind why these cards are designed this way and it's barely touched upon.Bien que peu au fait du Tarot et de son symbolisme, son génie artistique sut donner vie aux visions et aux concepts de Crowley. The deck can of course be used without these systems, but I have found studying them to be immensely rewarding personally, as well as to my knowledge of the tarot. The quality is high, and the cards are well built however the deck I recieved was missing the fool trump. It should be said that the Thoth has the distinction of being one of the most controversial tarot decks available also.

A Deck that sometimes that is mis-understood, and seems more powerful than any other deck you may have worked with. Crowley wrote a guidebook to the deck, entitled “The Book of Thoth”, which was illustrated with Frieda Harris’s images. The illustrations of the deck feature symbolism based upon Crowley's incorporation of imagery from many disparate disciplines, including science and philosophy and various occult systems (as described in detail in his The Book of Thoth).

The magnificent art deco work contains kabalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister CrowleyÕs Book of Thoth. When I realised these were different from the Rider-Waite system (slightly) I knew I had to check them out.

The deck is inspired by the Egyptian deck, which is why it was also known as the Toth tarot, or the Toth cards. Sein Ansatz für die Deutung der Karten liegt in der Selbsterkenntnis, die man beim Betrachten der Bilder und Symbole erlangen kann: 'So wie wir einen Spiegel benutzen, um unser Äußeres zu betrachten, können wir die Bilder des Tarot gebrauchen, um uns unserer inneren Wirklichkeit zu nähern.
