US Games has been instrumental in getting Pamela Colman Smith the credit she deserves for her contribution, above and beyond mere technical rendering, to the iconic deck authored by A.E. Waite and illustrated by her. This deck, an offshoot of the 2009 Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set, restores the subtle nature of Smith’s original coloring. Along with the ivory-toned borders, it recreates the feeling of the 100+ year old Rider-Waite deck.
The companion booklet has an introduction by US Games patriarch Stuart R. Kaplan and instructions excerpted from Waite’s The Key to the Tarot. This is a must-have deck for serious tarot afficionados and a beautiful tribute to a woman who made major contributions to the occult movement at the turn of the last century.
