This is what the Carole-Anne has to say:
“My name is Carole-Anne Eschenazi. I’ve always been very fond of heroes. I’ve always found in their stories or in their paths the deepest inspiration. I would simply wonder: ‘What would Scarlett O’Hara, or Cyrano de Bergerac, or Peter Pan, or Cleopatra, do in my situation?’. The answers often provided ways to resolve my problems. Therefore, my favourite heroes soon became companions for me, and even coaches in a way. Being also a tarot lover and collector, the desire to create a tarot deck using universal heroes slowly grew in my mind. I began working on it. Then one night, as I was writing with my beloved cat, Caline, sleeping on my knees, an idea spring suddenly: why not convert all of my heroes into.. cats? That’s how this deck was born. All those cat heroes are here to give you any advice you may need. They will escort you and will help you reveal the one true hero that lies inside of yourself.”

The Crowley Thoth Tarot was created by the famous occultist Aleister Crowley. Lady Frieda Harris painted the cards. Although Lady Harris knew little about Tarot and its symbolism, under the guidance of Crowley she transposed all subtleties of his ideas into her paintings.
The Crowley Thoth Tarot was first published in 1972, after the death of both Crowley and Lady Harris.
