The Thoth Tarot Deck (or Crowley Deck as it is more widely known) is one of the most popular decks in current use. It is also one of the most original interpretations of the tarot, incorporating astrological, numerological, and Qabalistic symbolism. While there are many other useful guides to this famous tarot deck, there are no others which explain the deck in its creators own words.
Now a classic in the field, used by students of the Golden Dawn as well as by those who want to understand Crowley’s tarot. This is the definitive study of the Egyptian tarot and is used as a key to all Western mystery disciplines. Images of the cards, including color plates of eight cards.
