  • Author Oswald Wirth

    Oswald Wirth (1860-1943) was a Swiss occultist, artist and author. He was a student of Elphaas Levi and was mentored by Stanislas de Guaita.

Tarot of the Magicians by Swiss occultist artist and author Oswald Wirth was first published in Paris in 1927, and a Weiser edition was later released in 1985.

Long unavailable, the book is back in print in a beautiful new package with fullcolor pullout cards reproducing Wirth’s 1889 tarot deck. With a new introduction by bestselling tarot author Mary K. Greer, Tarot of the Magicians offers tarot enthusiasts and students of the occult an indepth and authoritative analysis of one of the most beautiful and evocative of all modern tarot decks.

In this important tarot work of the Major Arcana, Wirth combines the imagery and symbolism from Alchemy, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, and the magical heritage of Egypt and Chaldea, and explores the astronomical (rather than strictly zodiacal) associations for the Major Arcana cards.
