The back of the box reads:
Well established as a classic, the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck remains faithful to the artistry of Pamela Coleman Smith's 1909 design. The innovative deck, once considered revolutionary, now sets the standard for tarot cards everywhere, and continues to be one of the world's most popular tarot decks.
Unless you have very large hands, these cards will be difficult to shuffle and aren't really suitable for normal use in tarot readings. This oversized tarot deck is best suited for display, for demonstrations, or just because you want them.
Rider-Waite is probably the best known and is certainly one of the widest used tarot decks in the world. Numerous tarot books have been produced over the years, most of which base their teachings on this tarot deck.
Previous tarot decks tended to feature a more simplistic design in the Minor Arcana (Suit/Court cards). The Rider Waite Tarot Deck was one of the first tarot decks to feature figurative pictorials with several layers of meaning.
This new emphasis on imagery and design led to the Rider Waite tarot deck becoming hugely popular as people all over the world were able to resonate with these cards and learn so much from them. Since then, a great many other tarot card decks have been produced, many of which are heavily influenced by the Rider Waite deck.
The images in the Rider Waite tarot cards illustrate the different layers of meaning in each tarot card perfectly, which makes them ideal for anyone wanting to learn about tarot, while they’re intricate and symbolic enough to satisfy any professional reader.
