This French-language paperback has all 16 paintings from the Palermo Collection, recently discovered and exhibited in Paris. In addition to the 16 full-color pages, this includes writings of Marco Pasi, William Breeze, Giuseppe Di Liberti, Alessandra Sandrolini, and Kenneth Anger. We hasten to repeat, it’s in French.

Rough translation of the description on the back of the book:

Founder of a new religion, magician, poet, painter, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) settled in the 1920s in Cefalù, where he founded the Abbey of Thelema. The series of paintings presented here, from an exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, was discovered some years ago in a village near Cefalù. The exhibition expressed the importance of image and symbol in Occult. It includes studies of the Thoth Tarot, designed by Crowley twenty years later (1938 to 1942). Between visions and dreamlike hallucinations, a  psychotropic utopia of a primitive paradise, all of Crowley’s work has influenced the counter-culture and even pop music. The discovery of these paintings is the opportunity to examine the complexity of Crowley’s legacy.

La description originale en français:

Fondateur d’une nouvelle religion, magicien, poète, peintre, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) s’installe dans les années 1920 à Cefalù, où il fonde son Abbaye de Théléma. La série de peintures présentées ici, objet d’une exposition au Palais de Tokyo, a été découverte il y a quelques années dans un village proche de Cefalù. Elle explicite l’importance de l’image et du symbole dans le domaine occulte. Son étude atteste entre autres de son lien avec le jeu de Thoth, tarot conçu par Crowley vingt ans plus tard (1938- 1942). Entre visions oniriques et hallucinations psychotropes, utopie d’un paradis primitif, l’ensemble de l’oeuvre de Crowley a influencé la contre-culture autant que la musique pop. La découverte de ces peintures est l’occasion d’interroger la complexité de cet héritage.

The Thoth Tarot was created by the famous Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Lady Frieda Harris (1877-1962) 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. Many a card was painted several versions, until one of them was approved by Crowley. The Crowley Thoth Tarot took over five years to be completed. It was first published in 1969, after the death of both Crowley and Lady Harris. The present edition was produced by utilizing the most advanced techniques of color separation and printing, thus faithfully reproducing the stunning colors of the original paintings.

Crowley described AHA! as “An exposition in poetic language of the ways of attainment and the results obtained.” This profoundly esoteric work particularly highlights the two central experiences of the Path, the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel and the Crossing of the Abyss. It also marks Crowley’s final acceptance of the mysteries and teachings of The Book of the Law .

This new edition features a previously unpublished and invaluable Commentary by Frater Achad, one of Crowley’s most important early students, which indicates a method by which the mystic depths of AHA! may be further explored. It includes an elaborate Commentary by Israel Regardie, a primary Crowley biographer and spokesman. An Afterword by Crowley scholar James Wasserman places the work within the context of Crowley’s overall life and teaching.
