    I liked a book called The Crowley Tarot: The Handbook to the Cards by Hajo Banzhaf and someone else.
    ISBN-10: 0880797150.
    I bought it in Watkins Books about two years ago.

    It is in full living and breathing colour on every glossy page.

    Every one of Harris’s paintings is disassembled and each symbol (sometimes very hard to see) is printed separately and given a small text box.

    I found the book elucidating but often annoying: I believe this book had been translated from German to English. But the German authors used many quotes from English authors. These (I believe) had been translated to German, and some translator translated them back to English. A sure-fire recipe for gobbledy-gook.

    Despite the failings it is a very clear book, one card for every page, sometimes two. The three Magi are all discussed.

    More practically, because it is very glossy, when you open it it has that strong acidic-wooden smell blasting out in all directions. The new book’s new car small.
    I like that, but it wears off after a while.

    Please, don’t believe me a word.

    You don’t need books to learn the TT.

    Carry your deck everywhere with yourself 24/7 for at least one month. The more the better. Wrap the deck in a silk, and place it next to your body, i.e. it’s best that the cards touch the body. Put them in the pocket of your shirt, or your trousers, anywhere where you can touch them whenever you want.

    This is not a teaching site, but you are a brave young man, and you’ve deserved to know the TT 101.

    You will know when you have connected with them. Look at the cards, do not bother much with their symbolism.

    Use any card you want to know more about as a door to its own astral realm; talk with its inhabitants, and ask them anything you want to know. Write what you have learned in your magick diary; do not be harsh to yourself if you haven’t remembered everything.

    The manuscript abruptly ends here.
