Improved Edition of Thoth Tarot Deck Published

The Thoth Tarot is being released in an improved version and in a deluxe size besides the standard and pocket sized. O.T.O. OHO Hymenaeus Beta edited a new booklet for it, writing a long historical foreword, and an afterword on divination by tarot.  For the first time,  Felix Warren Crosse gets properly credited as the author of the 1940s gallery catalog describing the cards. That gallery catalog has appeared in all US Games editions since the late 1970s but it has been re-edited and some card meanings have been expanded for this new edition. It also has the first publication of Gerald J. Yorke’s important introductory essay for a 1958 edition of the deck that never appeared.

The colors in this deck are now correct — they match those of the original paintings for the first time. look wonderful.

The U.S. publisher says:

Crowley Thoth Tarot has attracted a worldwide following, both for its striking beauty and for its complex depiction of occult knowledge. This new edition’s revised artwork beautifully captures the integrity of the original paintings by Lady Frieda Harris, according to instructions from the occult scholar, Aleister Crowley. The magnificent art deco work contains kabalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth. The stunning art deco 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. Since its initial publication in 1969, the deck has never been out of print. This new edition includes two additional cards: one title card and one double-sided card with portraits of Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris. Included with the deck is an 80-page booklet of expanded divinatory meanings with foreword by William Breeze and instructions for reading with the Crowley Thoth system.

Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot has been named one of the Top Ten Tarot Decks of All Time by Aeclectic Tarot.

  1. The Thoth deck really is one of those decks you want to get in, at least, the standard sized version. The reason being that all the cards have relatively large borders
