They say: The Thoth Tarot was created by the famous occultist Aleister Crowely (1875-1947). Lady Frieda Harris (1877-1962) painted the cards. Although Lady Harris knew little about Tarot and its symbolism, under the guidance of Crowley she transposed all the subtleties of his ideas into her paintings. Many a card was painted in several versions, until one of them was approved by Crowley. The Crowley Thoth Tarot took over five years to be completed. It was first published in 1969, after the death of both Crowley and Lady Harris. The present edition was produced by utilising the most advanced techniques of colour separation and printing, thus faithfully reproducing the stunning colours of the original paintings.

We say: The quality of the pictures seems to have been retained for this smaller version of the Crowley Thoth Tarot. Ideal for those who find the larger cards hard to shuffle, or you may just prefer cards that takes up less space on your reading cloth. They have even managed to squeeze in a very small 43 page booklet, which gives brief descriptions of the energies of the cards.

    Would Strongly Recommend This Tarot Deck

    Posted by Martine on 15th Apr 2009

    I chose the 'Thoth Tarot', by Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris, feeling irresistibly drawn by its great artistic value (surely one of the most beautiful of all decks) and by the mysterious intricacies of the varied symbols, which makes it unique among all decks. It is a hard to decrypt deck, evoking deep emotional as well as metaphysical insights, whence its strong fascinating power. Having in hands the real cards with their strong vibrations, is quite an experience ! There begins a long journey of discovery and study... Books are necessary to decipher fully these cards : of course, the companion book by Aleister Crowley, 'The Book of Thoth', which is available on many websites. But to manage to utilize them as easily as the Rider-Waite, I found that two other books are indispensable complements : 'Tarot: Mirror of the Soul', by Gerd Zeigler, and 'Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth', by Lon Milo Duquette. Anyway, the cards in themselves are so highly eloquent that a purely intuitive reading is quite a solution for those who feel confident in their inner guide. In fact, I try to follow and unite both ways : the purely intuitive one, and the step-by-step study of the deep levels of signification, relating to the whole system of Kabbalah. I would strongly recommend this Thoth Tarot for those who are mature enough to explore further the structures of the universal psyche.

    Highly Recommend

    The colours used in this pack are fairly dark and muted. This may have been done to deliberately set them apart from packs that are based on primary colours, such as the Tarot of Marseille. All of the cards are full of energy, life and detail and it is possible to see something new in each card every time that it is looked at. Although the cards do have a dark and masculine feel about them, many of them contain bright and colourful images. For example, the 8 of Disks shows small bright violet flowers against a lemon yellow background and the 6 of Wands shows red and yellow wands arranged against a delicate lilac background. Many cards, such as the 4 of Disks, contain interesting perspectives and visual tricks and some, for example The Hermit and The Sun have images which seem to burst out from the confines of the card. Considering Crowley's reputation as 'the most evil man in the country' it is interesting that his version of The Devil shows a very cheerful and cheeky-looking goat! I would recommend that everyone who is interesting in the study of the tarot should have a pack of these cards. Even if they are rarely used for giving readings, they are worth having simply for the opportunity to study Crowley's particularly fascinating view of the subject.
