Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Tarot Set
To celebrate the centennial of the most celebrated tarot deck, Stuart Kaplan has opened the vaults to create a stunning presentation of a beloved favourite. The set is magnificently packaged in a box that would look well on the library bookshelf, and contained within are many delights. In a small but mighty tome, the life, times and art of Pamela Colman (Pixie) Smith are lovingly presented with lots of glorious reproductions. When one opens the treasure chest, one finds several postcards of Pixie’s art (and one of her), a shiny new (non-pictorial) copy of Pictorial Key to the Tarot by A.E. Waite, and a splendid book by Kaplan containing a wealth of information about the woman behind the art. The jewel in the crown, of course, is the reproduction of the 1909 Waite-Smith deck in the originally intended, muted colors. This deck is perfect for beginners and advanced readers alike.
