Rider-Waite Tarot Also known as Rider Tarot, Waite Tarot, Waite-Smith Tarot

A traditional Tarot deck, perhaps the most popular in the Western world, is the Rider-Waite Tarot. As the cards drawn by Pamela Colman-Smith and commissioned by Waite were the first to use detailed pictures on the minor arcana cards, it is sometimes considered the first modern Tarot deck.
