The Rider Tarot Deck
Author: Professor Arthur Edward
One of the world’s most popular tarot decks. In 1909, Artist Pamela Colman Smith, under the direction of Arthur Edward Wairrte, 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.
