Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack – Waite & Colman-Smith


Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack – Arthur Edward Waite & Pamela Colman-Smith

78-card deck & guidebook
The original and only authorised edition of the famous 78-card Tarot deck designed by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite.
A. E. Waite & Pamela Colman Smith Arthur Edward Waite (1857-1942) was a leading scholar of the occult who produced the Rider Waite deck in 1910 in collaboration with artist Pamela Colman Smith. It has been the best selling Tarot deck of the twentieth century. Each card is rich in symbolism and clear in its design. It doesn’t have the more modern appeal of some recently published decks, but there are many subtleties in these paintings, which means that years after starting to use this deck you will be noticing new details. Many Tarot books use the Rider Waite deck for their illustrations. A great tarot deck for beginners and for advanced. Waite was born in 1857 in the US, but was brought up from a young age in Britain, after his father died. Waite joined the Hemetic Order of the Golden Dawn, became a Freemason in 1901 and entered the Societas Rosicruciana in 1902. His strong interest in all esoteric matters, such as divination, magic, Kabbalism, alchemy and Freemasony, led to him penning a number of books. These include the Key to the Tarot, The Book of Ceremonial Magic and A New Encyclopedia of Freemasony.
