IN 1909, ARTIST PAMELA COLMAN SMITH, under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite, 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. The 78-card Rider-Waite Tarot deck with accurate color tones on each card is an authentic miniature reproduction. English titles. Deck Measures 1.75" x 2.85" & Weight: 0.2 lbs.
