The Thoth Tarot was created by the famous occultist Aleister Crowley (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 subtilities of his ideas into her paintings. Many a card was painted several versions, until one of them was approved by Crowley. The Crowley Thoth 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 utilizing the most advanced techniques of color separation and printing, thus faithfully reproducing the stunning colors of the original paintings.
