Thanks, quite a different style from A.C. but then it isn't an original deck it seems, but copied from an older deck. Doesn't appeal to me, but certainly would be interested if hear if anyone has it and what their thoughts are.

I take it from another post of yours that you do not have it but wish to acquire it?

ive already bought the book. the card deck costs £40 so i'll have to wait.
the card deck has two extra suits Crowns and Acorns plus 4 extra major arcana cards. this tarot deck is an original romany gypsy hand painted tarot deck, passed down the family male-female, female-male for about 300 years.
this card deck is THE original, albiet re-painted by Amado Crowley

Amado Crowley! Isn't he that mad guy who claims he is the secret son of Aleister Crowley?

That is what it says on his site. Well, he doesn't say he's mad, but he does say he is the illegitimate son of Crowley.

If you claim you're Crowley's illegitimate son your books sell, for a while at least anyway.
Amado Crowley was denounced as a fraud a long time ago.

In his book "The Triumph of the Moon", Ronald Hutton does a good job of showing how suspect Amado Crowley's claims are. On the occasions that Amado says he was with Aleister, Crowley's own diaries say nothing or contradict Amado completely.
Hutton tried to look into Amado's past and came up empty. Probably because it doesn't exist. Someone called Andrew Standish does though. heh heh

I don't believe he is the son of AC, but I believe -

1 - his mother might have told him he was;
2 - he is a genuine occultist (not a real charlatan) - his teachings seem solid, if a little light. This is just a superficial view - I haven't read much of him, and I don't intend to.

I therefore think he's harmless, and his deck has charm.

But if AC is his main claim to fame - why bother listening to him otherwise? - then it is probably better to go to AC first. Usually that's enough to quench your thirst for a few decades at least.
