From the Publisher
In 1909, artist Pamela Coleman Smith, under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite, created an innovative 78-card tarot deck that would come to be recognized as revolutionary. With descriptive pictures on the 56 Minor Arcana cards, the Rider- Waite deck digressed from the tradition of tarot deck used for centuries and set the standard for nearly every tarot deck published.
From Our Editors
Some people call it the Waite Tarot Deck. Other people call it the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. But for now, we’ll call it The Rider Tarot Deck. This handsome collection of mystical cards is the only authorized edition of the famous 78 card Tarot Deck designed by Pamela Colman Smith. This wondrous deck of cards has been reissued in collaboration with Sybil Waite and Rider and Company, London and comes with an instruction booklet by Arthur Edward Waite. Stuart R. Kaplan provides a foreword.
