The Pictorial Key to the Tarot is A. E. Waite's guide to divinatory tarot, published in England in 1911 in conjunction with the Rider-Waite-Smith deck

The Pictorial Key to the Tarot is A. Waite's guide to divinatory tarot, published in England in 1911 in conjunction with the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. The book (which Waite himself called "a monograph") consists of three parts.

Arthur Edward Waite was born on October 2, 1857 in Brooklyn, New York. He was a poet and scholarly mystic who wrote extensively on occult and esoteric matters, and was the co-creator of the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. He became a Freemason in 1901, and entered the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia in 1902

Although there were many Tarot decks prior to the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, and many after, none has gripped the popular imagination as much as this set. Waite covers the significance and deeper implications of each card, and gives practical instructions as to how to conduct a reading.

This is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the Tarot.

This book is THE reference for AE Waite's development of the modern standard tarot deck. You will gain insight into much of the symbolism he included in the deck.
