The Golden Dawn Tarot cards were painted by Robert Wang under the guidance of Francis Israel Regardie. The pictorial imagery on each card is based upon the late-nineteenth century designs of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the notebooks by MacGregor Mathers. The basic design of the cards, following the symbolic framework of the Inner Tradition, was formulated by S. L. Macgregor Mathers. It would appear that the original cards were painted by Mrs. Mathers, an accomplished artist, although they were never printed. The original deck was lent to members of the Inner Order. After experiencing the profound and beautiful ritual of initiation into the grade of Adeptus Minor, one of their tasks was to hand-paint a copy of the esoteric tarot deck. Wang has also written an Introduction to the Golden Dawn Tarot about his deck.
