The Golden Rider Tarot is a clone of the original Rider-Waite cards, repainted here in rich oils by Francois Tapernoux. His images have a softer blend of colours, but have blurred expressions and lack the line detail of the originals.

Golden Rider Tarot review by Juf Connie
After buying almost all versions of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, I finally found a deck that really speaks to me.
I am an obsessive tarot collector and one of the drives of that obsession was the desire to find a way to connect with the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. I have a difficult relationship with this deck. I respect the ideas of this deck and I think Pamela Colman-Smith must have been an interesting character and a good artist but I have one problem with the RWS deck; I want to like it but I don't.
