I’m a big fan of this tarot deck, most commonly referred to as the Rider-Waite deck. The illustrations by Pamela Colman Smith have come to define tarot for so many people and for so long, that this deck is almost the modern archetype of tarot itself. Its symbolism has come to be the most commonly accepted among tarot decks, and it has so many imitators and artistic descendants that it’s a genre unto itself.
That being said, I do not recommend this edition of the cards. The illustrations used to print this deck appear to be poor scans of the original artwork, resulting in a loss of clarity, a loss of some lines, and a thickening of some other lines. Pamela Colman Smith’s original hand-lettered titles have been replaced with cold typeset titles instead. The back of this deck is the worst kind of generic – a black and blue plaid background. And, worst of all, the coloring of this deck is absolutely atrocious. The colors are garish – almost neon or fluorescent colors – quite harsh. In addition, there are a host of odd coloring choices, such the dove on the Ace of Cups being the same color (gray) as the sky from which it is descending and the face at the upper left of the 7 of Cups is colored the same shade of blue as the blue background of the card, etc. Very amateurish.
Pamela Colman Smith’s art has a quiet dignity that has withstood the test of time and fickle changes of style. It deserves a presentation much more dignified than this.
Instead of this sloppy presentation, I recommend either the The Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack or the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set (the best edition currently in print, in my opinion).

Beautiful deck! Exactly what I wanted. The directions on how to begin reading tarot are a bit vague and oddly phrased, but there are many resources on line to supplement. The glossy cards are vividly colored and sturdy even with daily use for the duration of a month. I think they fit the bill.

I purchased this deck because I wanted to learn the "real" tarot. I had a previous deck where none of the pip cards were illustrated and it made it very difficult to understand. Unfortunately even though this deck IS fully illustrated, like I wanted, it still is not very easy to understand. The images are roughly drawn and there is a copyright from US games on each card. I did buy a highly recommended book on tarot, specifically for this deck, but I am still not getting it. Most of the images are confusing or frightening and I really don't want to leave my friends with that impression. I'm going to try another deck.
