Aleister Crowley's Thoth Premier Tarot Deck is designed to provide those who are new to the classic Thoth Tarot with everything they need to begin reading with this deck.
In addition to the classic, standard size Thoth Tarot cards, there includes a 20" x 17" Full-Color Spreadsheet, and a 48-page instruction booklet is included with two essays written by Lady Frieda Harris; explaining the history of tarot as well as how to use Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot.
The magnificently stylized artwork by Lady Frieda Harris is rich with Egyptian symbolism and masterfully expresses the synthesis of occultist Aleister Crowley’s esoteric knowledge:
- Magical Correspondences
- Planets and Elements
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.
One of the most popular tarot decks in the world, the Thoth Tarot was created as a companion to The Book of Thoth and the culmination of controversial Aleister Crowley’s lifelong dedication to the esoteric arts.
It took five years of collaboration between Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris before the deck was completed in 1943, however, neither saw the paintings published as tarot cards in their lifetime. The Thoth Tarot deck was not commercially published until 1969. Since its publication, it has never gone out of print.
