The iconic drawings of Pamela Colman Smith have been beautifully re-colored by artist Mary Hanson-Roberts. The original meanings and rich symbolism of the Rider-Waite artwork come through with greater clarity and fresh, new details. The enhanced imagery make the Universal Waite Tarot deck more accessible to newcomers and more appealing to seasoned tarot readers. Hanson-Roberts’ serene colors also make the Universal Waite deck as perfect for meditation as it is for divination.
This deck/book set includes a 78-card Universal Waite Tarot deck, the Pictorial Key to the Tarot by Arthur Edward Waite, and a tarot spread sheet with designated spaces for the 10-card Celtic Cross Spread.
Book contents include: The Veil and its Symbols; The Doctrine Behind the Veil; The Outer Method of the Oracles, The Greater Arcana and their Divinatory Meanings, and The Art of Tarot Divination.
Others decks with artwork by Mary Hanson-Roberts include: Hanson-Roberts Tarot and Whimsical Tarot (now out of print).
