From the publisher:
The magnificent art deco work contains kabalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth. The art déco 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. The original 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.
Consider the book The Crowley Tarot: The Handbook to the Cards as your intense guide to the Crowley Thoth deck.
From the Thoth Tarot Deck introduction:
The Toth desk was designed by Aleister Crowley and painted by Lady Frieda Harris. Their original intent was to correct and update the classic, medieval tarot, giving it a more esoteric aspect. The project, however, grew into a restructuring of the traditional pictorial symbolism of the ancient wisdom and was extended for five years between 1938 and 1943.
Aleister Crowley is often described as the most advanced and influential occultist of the twentieth century. His life’s work was an attempt to synthesize the diverse teachings of the world’s religions by extracting the essential kernel of truth shared by them and developing a system attaining God-realization, which he called “Scientific Illuminism.”
From the Small Crowley Thoth box:
