The Via Deck is inspired by Aleister Crowley's Toth Deck, but is definitely not a clone of it. The artwork is beautiful and full of symbolism. The symbolism is drawn from various sources, including Kabbalistic(spelled with a C by Susan Jameson), alchemistic, magical and astrological. Kabbalistic principles seem to dominate over the others. The artwork is fairly subdued and very easy on the eye. According to Jameson, the Major Arcana is inspired by "spirit visions". The Majors are full of symbolism from the various sources, and is quite thought provoking. The Majors, although inspired by the Toth Deck, do not contain similar artwork. The book, included in the deck set, gives a detailed explanation for each of the cards of the Majors, as well as the divinatory meaning for each. The Court cards do follow closely the symbolism in the Toth Deck, however they do not bear the same names. There is a short description for each Court card, along with the divinatory meaning for each. You can easily see that the Minors or pip cards, are inspired by the Toth Deck. Each of the Minor cards contain depictions of Crowley's suggestion for the card, in a "bubble" held by a person. The name of each card as well as its divinatory meaning, is given for each card. What I did find interesting, is, that if you look closely as to how the "bubble" is being held, and the facial expression of the person holding the "bubble", you can get a feeling for the mood relating to the card. I do highly recommend this Deck. Although inspired by the Toth Deck, the Via Tarot stands on its own.
