The Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack - With 'Key to the Tarot' Book
This is a sturdy gift box containing an Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck along with a copy of 'The Key to the Tarot'.
A E Waite was a celebrated writer on occult topics and a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The Original Rider Waite Tarot is the most popular and widely used tarot card deck in the world. The rich, figurative designs that are the hallmark of this set will help everyone to understand and enjoy the unique language of tarot.
First issued in 1910, each card is rich in symbolism and striking in its design. The deck is accompanied by an invaluable instructional book, The Key to the Tarot explaining the history and usage of the tarot cards, of which there are 78 divided into the Major and Minor Arcanas.
The book can be used in conjunction with any set of tarot cards, but it was written in particular to accompany the 78-card Rider Waite tarot deck which was designed by Pamela Colman Smith in accordance with A. E. Waite's instructions.
The Key to the Tarot explains the history and symbolism of the cards and gives instructions on how to use them for purposes of divination. This edition includes a specially commissioned foreword by Liz Greene.
