As one of our new members (EarthBoy) so kindly pointed out,
In the Key to the Tarot 1910 (reissued as PKT in 1911) Waite
says....

"The Tarot cards which are issued with the small edition of the present work, that is to say, with the Key to the Tarot, have been drawn and coloured by Miss Pamela Colman Smith, and will, I think, be regarded as very striking and beautiful, in their design alike and execution." Page 67
