Seven of Cups Art and Meaning Waite Smith Tarot Deck Deck
About the Deck
Pivotal and canonical, this deck defined a new pattern that would be followed up to the present. I made a digitally retouched and painted version of this deck, which I call the "Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck". The cards from that deck, as well as a modern English translation of the romantic English descriptions by Arthur Edward Waite (as appear on the Waite Smith Tarot deck) appear in a cross-referenced format in my book, "A Concise Guide to the Tarot: In Vivid Color"
Designed by A.E. Waite and Illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. England, 1911.
DescriptionStrange chalices of vision, but the images are more especially those of the fantastic spirit.
