Overview

In 1909, Arthur Edward Waite encouraged Pamela Colman Smith to produce a tarot deck with appeal to the world of art that would have significance behind the symbols and thus make the deck more important than tarot packs previously used for centuries.

The result was the unique Rider-Waite tarot deck which has endured as the world's most popular 78-card tarot deck.

The innovative cards, including the 56 Minor Arcana, depict full scenes with figures and symbols. This feature, combined with Pamela Colman Smith's ability to capture the subtleties of emotion and experience, has made the Rider-Waite Tarot the basis for the designs of many century decks.

Facsimile edition of the Rider Waite Tarot deck originally printed from plates that were destroyed during the bombing of London during WWII. The deck and book set comes complete with fullcolor 78-card Rider Waite Tarot deck by Pamela Colman Smith with original Tudor Rose back design, Celtic Cross divinatory chart, and The Key to the Tarot by Arthur Edward Waite, 160 (pb). Cards measure 2 3/4" x 4 3/4".

    not even for beginners!

    I purchased this book and in my opinion is nothing extraordinary, just a bad recipe book!, with isolated meaning in each card, as a Tarot reader you think more about meanings in combinations not just a single meaning, I wish an experienced author goes deeper than the ordinary Tarot books! and will be nice to put some color because this book you can fall sleep right there!!!
