First issued in 1910, the Rider-Waite Tarot is almost certainly the most widely used tarot card deck in the world. There are 78 tarot cards, divided into the Major and Minor Arcanas, designed by Pamela Colman Smith in accordance with A. E Waite's instructions. An instructional booklet by A. E. Waite is included, explaining the tarot card meanings and how to use the cards for divination, with an introduction by Stuart R. Kaplan.

About the Author

Arthur Edward Waite (2 October 1857 – 19 May 1942), commonly known as A. E. Waite, was an American-born British poet and scholarly mystic who wrote extensively on occult and esoteric matters, and was the co-creator of the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. As his biographer R. A. Gilbert described him, "Waite's name has survived because he was the first to attempt a systematic study of the history of western occultism—viewed as a spiritual tradition rather than as aspects of proto-science or as the pathology of religion."

"Instructions"? What instructions??


I thought for the price at least a proper case or box to keep the cards in should be included. The instructions booklet was the biggest let down. Only describes each card's meaning, there are no actual instructions on how to play, read (for meaning), cards position etc. had to find YouTube tutorials to get a better idea...



I like it


Classic card. Megical.



Good cards


Standard cards



Great, easy to read deck


As a beginner to tarot this deck is easy to see what card is what, making it easier to learn the deck. Still need to utilise other sources to get a thorough meaning for the cards but overall a great deck
