Your Tarot Deck

I love every tarot deck, but the most lovely is the Rider-Waite deck designed by A. E. Waite and drawn by Pamela Colman-Smith. She was called “the pixie” and brings a mischievous sense of humour to Mr. Waite’s rather more dry tone! Their deck, which was created and published in 1909, is easily the most recognisable tarot deck and also the best-selling. This is because it is ideal for beginners looking to learn tarot easily.

I have put a card carousel up above where you can go and look at some of the most popular versions of this deck, and two other decks which are lovely, and based on Waite & Smith’s cards; the Hanson-Roberts and the Robin Wood Tarot decks. Whichever you choose, they are all delightful.

I have also recommended the incredible Tarot Illuminati, which has recently been published by Lo Scarabeo. You will see also the Thoth Tarot deck by Aleister Crowley and Frieda Harris, which I think should be on every tarot readers list of cards, as a stunning piece of art.
