Distant relatives of the gnomes, the fairies are very playful beings who carry out naughty jokes at times. The fairies however also like to help humans in very practical ways, for example through these cards.
The Fairy Tarot is enchanted: it allows reality to be confronted using a positive attitude, it helps play down all kinds of trouble and easily overcomes problems objectively.
Born in London in 1867, Rackham confirmed his calling when he illustrated a popular edition of Grimm’s Fairy Tales shortly followed shortly after by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens – a proper beginning for an artists who would draw readers into the realms of myth, legend, and fairies for the rest of his life.
Klimt and his strong allegorical subjects inspired this Tarot designed by A.A. Atanassov. Every now and then a fundamental aspect of the artwork of the great Viennese artist emerges, or rather the revival of figurative and compositional aspects of Hellenic classicism. A revival with roots in the Nietzschean culture that indicates a return to the origin; that is, to that ancient Greek world where authentic aesthetic and ethical models can still be found uncontaminated.
The symbol inherent in this deck is perfectly coherent with that symbolist culture that also gave original to Klimt’s artwork. The pictorial images of the Viennese artist are, in fact, full of hermeticism: his works seem to be depictions of a mystery and even more so an expression of emotions and drives. And so Adorno and his Aesthetic Theory, which traces the essence of art to an enigma, comes to mind.

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.
