A faithful reproduction of the original deck created by Pamela Coleman Smith in 1909 under the dissection of Arthur E. White.
The Smith-Waite Centennial Tarot Deck is a faithful reproduction of the original deck created by Pamela Colman Smith in 1909 under the direction of Arthur E. Waite. This classic tarot deck features full pictorial scenes in the muted colors chosen by “Pixie” herself. The deck was first issued in 2009 by U.S. Games Systems as part of the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set. This stand-alone version is for collectors who want to keep their PCS sets pristine and yet do readings with this special deck. The 84-card deck includes the standard 78 tarot cards plus four samples of Pixie’s non-tarot artwork: Much Ado About Nothing, The Gates of Dreamland, Christmas Carol and Once in a Dream.
I adore this deck. The cards are non-glossy so they don't stick together, and the images are beautiful and vintage looking. The color palette is muted and easy on the eyes. The cards are high quality and thick, so thick it's a bit hard to shuffle sometimes, but it's a very minor quibble. If you have bigger hands than my petite ones, you should have no trouble.
