The images in this slightly unusual deck were inspired by the work of P.D. Ouspensky, the Russian philosopher who explored the idea of higher dimensions of existence. The design is definitely not well-suited to divination or readings, as the backs of the cards change depending on the suit or arcana of the card front: a winged angel head on a grey-green background adorns the backs of the major arcana, while each of the minor arcana display their suit symbol set against a different color (wands=orange, cups=green, swords=blue, pentacles=yellow). The minor arcana pip cards seemed to be modeled variously after Crowley and the Regardie/Wang Golden Dawn deck, with varying degrees of additional scenic decoration.
