The Phoenix Tarot is the self-published work of Italian Artist Paola Angelotti.
She has won several international computer graphics contests over the years, such as the Corel World Design Contest.
The deck was inspired by the the Golden Dawn’s teachings, and partially by Aleister Crowley’s deck.
She created each card using brilliant colors so that the reader would retain a negative image called a phosphen, an image that remains in the retina after staring at a bright color for a few moments.
The phenomenon was first observed by John Dee, a ranaissance astrologer, occultist, and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I, and he supposed it was a door for the angelic world.
