An excellent choice for those people beginning to learn the tarot.  Thought to be the best selling Tarot deck of the twentieth century.  Each card is rich in symbolism and clear in its design.  It doesn't have the more modern appeal of some recently published decks, but there are many subtleties in these paintings, which means that years after starting to use this deck you will be noticing new details.  Many tarot books use the Rider Waite deck for their illustrations.
