Product description

Book Description

The Universal Waite Tarot Deck offers a subtle yet stunning alternative, with softer colours, to the Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck. --This text refers to an alternate Cards edition.

About the Author

A.E. Waite was the designer and co-creator of the now famous Rider Waite Tarot deck.

An American-born British poet and scholarly mystic, his strong interest in all esoteric matters - divination, magic, Kabbalism, alchemy and Freemasony - led to him penning a number of books. These include the Key to the Tarot, The Book of Ceremonial Magic and A New Encyclopedia of Freemasony.

Pamela Colman Smith was born in England to American parents. Her childhood years were spent between London, New York and Kingston, Jamaica. She became a theatrical designer, even collaborating with the notable W.B. Yeats on stage designs. She was an illustrator mainly of books, pamphlets and posters too.

Under the guidance of A. E. Waite, she undertook a series of seventy-eight allegorical paintings described by Waite as a 'rectified' tarot pack. The designs, published in the same year by William Rider and Son, exemplify the mysticism, ritual, imagination, fantasy and deep emotions of the artist.

Mary Hanson-Roberts is an artist, based in the US, who has worked on a number of tarot card decks, including the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, the Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck and the Whimsical Tarot Deck. --This text refers to an alternate Cards edition.
