We're also selling a Centennial Version of the Smith Rider Waite deck with FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING if you want your cards to arrive quicker.
The cards themselves were drawn in 1909 by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of occultist Arthur Edward Waite.
Prior to this, almost all tarot decks were marked only with the suit signs -- swords, wands, cups, and coins, or pentacles. This made them difficult to interpret but that all changed when Smith - with guidance from Waite - produced images and symbols that help 'tell the story'. In doing so, they set the standard for nearly every tarot deck published.
4x 2 1/3" (10.3cm x 6cm) - please note these are about the same size as normal playing cards, which means they take up less room in your bag!
