The art in this deck for me is beautiful, black and white sketchy gothic style with pops of colour/rainbow on each card
I deeply want this deck at some point.
This deck is inspired by the rider waite ( circa early 1900's) and the tarot de Marseille and I genuinely love it so much it features prominent black folks from musicians to activists
Will be on tomorrow and Thursday too!

This deck is something the literary nerd in me lusts after
This deck is hexagons and so pretty! It's based on some of the elements of periodic table.
The Shakespeare tarot
A landscape orientation deck that is inspired by classical Italian frescos etc.
