Pamela Colman Smith

Pamela Colman Smith

halloween_oracle_1.jpg

In 1909 artist Pamela Colman Smith’s involvement with the Order of the Golden Dawn led to a commission from Arthur Edward Waite to create a 78-card tarot deck. Originally known as the Rider deck, it was the first to include full pictorial scenes for the Minor Arcana pips. Pamela’s varied mystical influences are evident throughout the deck. Once considered revolutionary, The Rider-Waite® deck has set the standard for hundreds of other decks and has inspired a myriad of different versions available here.
