Rider-Waite Tarot Deck
The cards were drawn in 1909 by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite. Smith's vibrant drawings transformed the standard tarot deck. A unique feature of the Rider-Waite deck, and one of the of the principal reasons for its enduring popularity, is that all of the cards, including the Minor Arcana, depict full scenes with figures and symbols. The pictorial images on all the cards allow interpretations without the need to repeatedly consult explanatory text. The cards measure 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" and comes with an instructional booklet.
