Beautiful Decks: The Bohemian Gothic Tarot


Attic Cartomancy - Beautiful Decks - The Bohemian Gothic Tarot

This is a really nice dark and moody deck that I came across by pure chance while doing a google search, which is strange! Me being a fan of collage art, the tarot, and all things dark and mysterious I should have come across this deck before. So thank you random google search algorithm. The deck description states “The deck takes a subtle and psychological approach to the Gothic. It draws much of its atmosphere from the 19th century Gothic writers such as Edgar Allen Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu, Henry James , Louis Stevenson, and Bram Stoker.” and indeed it does that. It’s simply beautiful. The deck was created by Alex Ukolov and Karen Mahony and published in 2007. It’s currently on its third edition and is available for purchase here.
