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.
