The Rider Waite Tarot is the world’s most popular tarot deck! Sometimes now called the Waite Colman deck, this classic deck has long been a favorite of beginners as well as tarot enthusiasts. This is the original and only authorized edition of the famous 78-card tarot deck.
IN 1909, ARTIST PAMELA COLMAN 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 decks used for centuries and set the standard for nearly every tarot deck published.
Designed by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of the occult scholar Dr. Arthur Edward Waite, for whom the deck is named. The deck contains 22 Major Arcana and 56 Lesser Arcana cards illustrated in full color.(includes instruction booklet).
The Giant deck is 4″x6-1/2″
The Pocket deck is 3-1/2″x2-1/4″
The Original Tarot Pack is a deck and book set, and comes with the Rider-Waite Tarot deck by Pamela Colman Smith with original Tudor Rose back design, Celtic Cross divinatory chart, and The Key to the Tarot book by Arthur Edward Waite.
The Radiant deck is completely faithful to the original, but has been vibrantly recolored by Virginijus Poshkus in brilliant colors and patterns. Enjoy!
The Tarot Tip Sheet uses the images of the Rider-Waite Tarot deck to encapsulate the meaning of each Tarot card, the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana, the basic four-card spread, and the significance of numbered cards, all on a full-color laminated card that folds to 7″ x 5″.
