The Rider-Waite Tarot is a classic Tarot deck, perhaps the most well-known in the Western world. It is often called the first modern Tarot deck, as the cards drawn by Pamela Colman-Smith and commissioned by Waite were the first to use detailed pictures on the minor arcana cards.
This edition of the Rider-Waite Tarot was released by US Games in 1971, and has paler images than the current edition. The cards have the handwritten titles by Pamela Colman-Smith and do not feature the US Games copyright notice.
This version of the Rider-Waite Tarot was published by University Books beginning in 1959. Its colours are more vivid than later editions - the blues and purples are almost electric - and the backs have a different design.
The Ring Cycle Tarot is a complex, non-traditional tarot based on The Ring of the Nibelung, an opera by Wagner. The 78 cards are adapted from illustrations by Arthur Rackham and are part of a deep system based on the mythology, symbolism, plot, music and characters of the Ring Cycle.
The Rising Sun Spirit Tarot is the start of an in-progess deck based on the spiritual life in traditional Japan. It's Flavio's view as an European on the ways of their spirituality, rather than an attempt to make a manga-style deck. His art is drawn by hand, scanned, and coloured to make each tarot image.
The Ritual Abuse Tarot is a dark and satirical tarot with 78 cards drawn in charcoal. It's an homage to children's illustrator Stephen Gammell, who was famous for his unsettling images in a series of horror short stories. Self-published by the artist.
The Roberto Viesi Tarot (titled as Gli Arcani Maggiori dei Tarocchi in Italian) is a stunning 22-card set designed by graphic illustrator, Roberto Viesi. It re-imagines the Tarot de Marseille symbolism in subtle colour and fine line work.
Easy for beginners and tarot newcomers to use with its Rider-Waite foundation, Robin Wood's self-titled Tarot deck is also rich in Pagan symbolism. The illustrations in this popular deck are attractive, and brightly but not harshly coloured.
The Rocambole Tarot is an 89-card deck of images of Toltec magic art. It was published in Russia in 2003 and the cards have titles in a geometric Russian font only.
