Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot 1909
This very popular Tarot deck was first published in 1909 by the Rider Company in England. It was illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith based on the symbolism provided by Arthur Edward Waite. This is one of the first "modern" Tarot deck designs with symbolism drawn from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn system of magic. This Tarot deck comes in very large, large, medium, and miniature sizes, and there are numerous differently colored versions available in print.
