Customer Review

on 26 February 2014
I purchased this commemorative set for the sole purpose of reading the much anticipated book on Pamela's life and art as I already owned the Rider Waite deck itself, along with the accompanying cards' interpretations by A E Waite. Having finished this publication I was so eager to read, I will give a brief description only as an addendum to the other reviews:
The Artwork and Times of Pamela Colman Smith is written by Stuart R Kaplan, who fortunately takes this endeavour to inform us with this insight into Pamela's life very seriously. The 101 page book contains lots of her non tarot illustrations, and varied examples of her poems or writings in a chronological order. The biographical information builds an interesting and often poignant picture of Smith's personal hopes, ideals, and public ventures, without being in any way obtrusive: a worthy retrospective of a creative life well lived.
This set is certainly recommended for anyone newly interested in tarot, or those who enjoy art, biographies, or those willing to delve into the accomplishments and spirit of this fascinating lady.
