The Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot Deck. The woman behind the world's most famous tarot deck was nearly lost in history.

The cards' enigmatic symbols have become culturally ingrained in music, art and film, but the woman who inked and painted the illustrations of the most widely used set of cards today -- the Rider-Waite deck from 1909, originally published by Rider & Co. -- fell into obscurity, overshadowed by the man who commissioned her, Arthur Edward Waite.
