Answer: The Thoth Tarot Deck, designed by Aleister Crowley and painted by Frieda Harris, first published in a limited edition in 1944.
The Tarot could be be described as Gods Picture Book, or it could be likened to a celestial game of chess, the Trumps being the pieces to be moved according to the law of their own order over a checkered board of the four elements.Frieda Harris
