Each background material is given a chapter to give you a brief, but solid background on Qabalah, hermetic symbolism, and the basics of Thelema and Aleister Crowley. Also, after reading, I feel I actually understand The Book of Thoth to a degree, meaning I can read it and can figure out what is being said through the symbolism.

This is the first point of call for those wishing to study this deck, and actually I think it is invaluable for those who want to learn more about the tarot full stop.

It sets the scene perfectly for the deck and is easy to follow. This unique guide has been updated with a new introduction that provides information on the unicursal hexagram cards included with the deck but never explained.
