This is probably the best known and is certainly one of the widest used tarot decks in the world. Numerous tarot books have been produced over the years, most of which base their teachings on this deck.
Previous tarot decks tended to feature a more simplistic design in the Minor Arcana (Suit/Court cards). The Rider Waite deck was one of the first to feature figurative pictorials with several layers of meaning.
This new emphasis on imagery and design led to the Rider Waite tarot becoming hugely popular as people all over the world were able to resonate with these cards and learn so much from them. Since then, a great many other tarot decks have been produced, many of which are heavily influenced by the Rider Waite deck.
The images in the Rider Waite tarot illustrate the different layers of meaning in each card perfectly, which make them ideal for anyone wanting to learn about tarot, while they’re intricate and symbolic enough to satisfy any professional reader.
The box reads: “The original and only authorised edition of the famous 78-card Tarot deck designed by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite.”

I am absolutely happy with this deck! John answered swiftly and was super helpful when I contacted him with some questions, the deck arrived before than expected and in perfect condition (plus the whole package smelled good!). I felt connected to the cards from the moment I took them out of the box and have been using them since with no complaints whatsoever, they are very good quality. I would definitely recommend John's shop and products!
