The Bohemian Gothic Tarot

The Bohemian Gothic Tarot

Every reader has their own favorite deck of cards. I've never used these, but they they look especially eerie and nice at the same time. I can't wait to get my little hands on them!

This is a deck designed for exploring the darker sides of the psyche revealing, as it does, both our dreams and our nightmares.

The Bohemian Gothic Tarot is the dark sister of the Victorian Romantic Tarot. It's a deck of the shadows; dark, beautiful, a little melancholy and mysterious.

Daemons, phantoms, vampires and werewolves haunt this darkly Gothic deck. With illustrations based on original Victorian photographs, the cards have extraordinary atmosphere and a haunting beauty. We all, in some manner, need to address the shadow issues in our lives.

  1. ooh! i like them! i have an old alice in wonderland tarot deck from the 40s or 50s. i don't use them since i don't really know where they've been (yeah, i'm superstitious) but i keep them wrapped in silk and nestled in an old wooden jewelry box. i love to take them out and look at them now and then since the pictures are so strange. i've been thinking about getting a deck i can actually use and this is very inspiring...
