5.0 out of 5 stars the Alpha and the Omega March 21 2001
Things that are deeply touch people are the things that survive the test of time and are well known. The Mona Lisa, for example, is considered a pivotal piece of art and is universally recognized, even though there are thousands of portraits that are both more realistic and completely finished. Somehow, this piece resonates with people in some way so that it's appeal and visceral attraction never fades.
The same is true of the Rider Deck. As noted in other reviews, there are quite literally hundreds of decks ranging from everything from baseball to vampires to dragons to unicorns. Many people collect Tarot cards, but most everyone starts here with the Rider Deck. Indeed, of the hundreds of books published on the Tarot, almost every book I've seen for the beginner to the advanced uses the Rider deck as an example. Most decks are based in the symbolism of the Rider deck as well and if they don't work as well, it's because they've glossed over the symbolism so pivotal in the Rider.
Why, then has the Rider not only survived but evolved to be an archetype of the tarot itself? I think because it speaks to us and it's the easiest to understand even at a quick glance. The symbolism is so strong that the beginner can easily remember what any given card represents (no mean feat when there are 72 cards to remember and read!) The symbolism is also so detailed and deep that the advanced caster is always able to find deeper meaning, make more and more connections between cards during a casting.
Drawn almost like an illuminated manuscript in solid colors with clear, black outlines before the age of airbrush or computer 3D rendering, there is something timeless about it that connects us to it's rich and deep history.

I own larger size Rider-Waite deck which is much higher in quality of paper, color. The smaller deck kind of dissappointed me, not that inspiring.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK deck June 11 2002
By Nina
When I become interested in a subject, I research it. The Tarot is no different. I bought this as my first deck based on the reviews here at amazon, and in various books and online sources. The symbolism is very rich, but i found it incredibly difficult to read and interpret. The reason is a simple matter of personal aesthetics: the cards are ugly. Because I didn't like them, I fought them every step of the way. Because of the rich symbolism, this is a very good deck for a seasoned expert, or someone who likes to look at them, but they are definitely not for me.

This is a great set of cards for learning the tarot. Cards have a classic look to them and the accompanying book makes it pretty clear when exposing the cards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleased but not exactly what I was looking for July 22 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I am very happy to have this deck and though the images are quality are fantastic I was unhappy to find that they are covered in a gloss that makes the cards shine yes but also more difficult to handle and give them almost a fake feeling, as I prefer the matte finish where you can feel the texture of the paper in the cards. This deck is good and does have to license stamp on each card as well. Overall the deck is fine but was not exactly what I was looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rider Waite Tarot Deck
The package with cards was good, it arrived right on time, the only issue I had with the cards was that they are too big by size and it makes them difficult to shuffle in hands.
