Waite J.K. Tarot by Seigan Nakajima

There are many WCS* decks out there but few are this elegant and even 'trippy' (in a good way) as the Japanese Waite J.K. Tarot, so i was vary lucky to obtain this deck from 1975 - what is by coincidence also my year of birth what makes it extra special.The deck follows closely the Pamela Coleman Smith originals closely but also some personal touches and changes.

* aka the Rider Waite Tarot, but as Mr. Rider was only the original publisher why let him take credit for more than that. I, and many others among who tarot authorities like Frank K Jensen prefer to credit the persons behind the deck namely Edward Waite & Pamela Coleman Smith.
