No longer under copyright in US (and arguably not in the UK either)

A card from the Rider–Waite–Smith deck published in the US in 1909, and no longer under copyright in the US. This is NOT the modified and recoloured US Games version published in 1971 (which is still under copyright).


Now commons[edit]

Update for January 2013, this image is now in the public domain, since Pamela Coleman Smith was paid as a 'work for hire' artist on this deck so the original copyright falls to Arthur Waite as the copyright holder, and he died in 1942. All the RWS images are now in the public domain. This is April 2013.
