Aleister Crowley's Three Magicians

Images by Lady Freda Harris

Publisher: US Games. Cards printed in Belgium.

Note: The scan above is 100% life size, though your monitor may show differently.

Comments: All three of Crowley's Magicians are now included in the small version of the Crowley Thoth Tarot. The third card, on the right, is the only one included with most copies of the deck.

What the two other magicians show is most interesting: They show a practical magician at work (you can either see this or you can't, I cannot go further into this myself). The standard magician shows nothing at all. We know that Crowley & Harris made several versions of a number of cards. The missing magicians hint at why: Could it be that Crowley originally intended a 78 card deck to teach practical magic but gave up the idea? What if we dug up the discarded images & constructed a "new" Crowley deck from them? Speculation is amusing. If I get the time I might write some further notes.
