  1. Great Little Deck! I’ve never been a big fan of the Rider Waite decks even though they are pretty much considered the general standard deck. The reason being that I don’t care too much for the colors used in the illustrations. But like the other reviewer noted, I also felt like it was a deck I needed to add to my collection, since it is significant to the history of the tarot. So when I found a mini version, I decided I would check it out.

  2. Trusted Friends…. I retired my full sized Rider Waite deck a few years ago in favor of this half size version. It fits my hands perfectly. In fact, in my humble opinion this should be the “standard size” of the deck. You can clearly make out all of the rich, symbolic, detail of the larger decks. As for the Waite Rider in general- Arthur Edward Waite was one of the greatest experts on spiritual and metaphysical teachings and symbolism that ever lived. He was a mage and theurgist that was truly touched by the divine. Unlike some other well-known figures from the same period, I have never found deliberately misleading or false information in any of his published works. He may leave deeper meanings up to your own meditation on the matter, but he never intentionally obscures or misleads. By the way, an excellent companion reference is Eden Gray’s _A Complete Guide to the Tarot_, though Waite’s own _The Pictorial Key to the Tarot_ is the gold standard. I’ll close this by saying that I do not regard these cards as mere artifacts, but as trusted friends.
