Born Frieda Bloxam in 1877, Lady Frieda Harris was the wife of the British MP, Sir Percy Harris. When the English occultist Aleister Crowley decided to produce his own Tarot deck, he approached Lady Harris to paint the illustrations of the cards to his design. The Thoth deck, as it became known, was developed between 1938 and 1943 (considerably longer than the anticipated three months). Though Crowley published his study of the Tarot, The Book of Thoth, in 1944, the deck itself was not published until 1969, by which time both designer and artist were dead.
