Waite commissioned Pamela to draw all 78 cards with his guidance. At the time they were both members of secret magical order of The Golden Dawn. Arthur E. Waite saw the intuitive and psyhic energy within Pamela and saw her to be the perfect person to channel the images he was helping her to create. Together they created a timeless piece of art, and a deck that has completely dominated the way we see Tarot in western cuture. This deck also includes a couple non-tarot cards that inclue some artowrk by Pamela Coleman Smith.
