What would happen if Frieda Harris, designer of the Thoth Tarot deck with Aleister Crowley, had been inspired to paint exactly the same landscape used by Pamela Colman-Smith for her Tarot with A. E. Waite?
The astonishing answer is in this book, Winchelsea: A Legend, by Frieda Harris … a connection made by Tero Hynynen which is now even more meaningful to tarot researchers.
You’ll notice those lovely clouds and trees (see the other illustration on the link) and coastline, given a Harris style some 16 years after Pamela painted her Tarot in the same landscape. Astonishing!
