Author and renowned Tarot expert Mary Greer discusses the amazing Pamela Colman Smith (the illustrator of the famous Rider-Waite-Smith deck). We touch on the Golden Dawn, the art of illustration, Jung’s active imagination, Smith’s musical visions, and the new, marvelous, and heavily-illustrated book, Pamela Colman Smith: the Untold Story (U.S. Games System).

For more on my thoughts on Smith and the Tarot deck she revolutionized, please see my article “The Comic Book of Thoth.”
