¶ Lady Frieda Harris is best known for her designs on the Thoth Tarot deck, but here's something different: three masonic tracing boards. Her use of synthetic projective geometry is very apparent in these paintings. These posters have quiet their own history. The original paintings were acquired by British Occultists in the 1970's. Around 1976 a few hundred sets of these posters were printed. This is the only publication of these designs that there has been. These posters have become highly sought after by those few who knew of them. In 2001 a British Bookseller discovered that a limited number had survived in a quite unexpected quarter - acquired for a project that did not come to fruition, and then stored away and forgotton. We are pleased to now offer a set of all three posters in Fine condition
