This deck of tarot cards created in 1901 is one of the most popular in the world. The artwork is by Pamela Colman Smith and the cards come with an instruction booklet by A.E. Waite. It includes descriptive pictures on 56 minor Arcana cards and this innovative 78-card tarot deck has come to be recognised as revolutionary. The Rider-Waite deck has digressed from the tradition of tarot decks used for centuries, setting the standard for nearly every tarot deck published.
