Pictorial Key to the Tarot

By A.E. Waite (1911), tarot card illustrations by Pamela Colman Smith (1911)

This classic work was published in England in 1911, side by side with the now ubiquitous Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck. Together, these two great works constitute a fork in the development of the tarot, diverging from the Continental tradion of the Tarot of Marseille. The book includes discussions into the symbolism of the tarot and its history and offers several different layouts for reading the tarot, as well as detailed and influential interpretations of each card of the tarot. This book, including color images of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, is in the public domain.
