Named one of the Top Ten Tarot Decks of All Time by Aeclectic Tarot.
A great way to begin your tarot journey
Rider-Waite Tarot has set the standard for hundreds of other tarot decks, which follow the archetypal images created by Pamela Colman Smith in 1909 under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite.
This edition includes Smith’s original hand drawn titles.
"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. Prior to the Rider-Waite Tarot, the pip cards of almost all tarot decks were marked only with the arrangement of the suit signs -- swords, wands, cups, and coins, or pentacles. The pictorial images on all the cards allow interpretations without the need to repeatedly consult explanatory text. The innovative Minor Arcana, and Pamela Colman Smith's ability to capture the subtleties of emotion and experience have made the Rider-Waite Tarot a model for the designs of many tarot packs." -- (from The Encyclopedia of Tarot, Volume III)

Being my first Tarot cards ever purchased I have been loving having my pack of cards handy at any time to help me ask questions of the divine. I have enjoyed doing several small or yes/no readings, and have also done a Celitc Cross reading on myself and my daughter which resonated with each of us respectively. I find this set is great as a beginner set and the description booklet is very handy as I get to learn how to read the cards. It has helped to learn about tarot reading in videos to help me on my journey of connecting with my Higher Self. Very happy with my cards!
