I think they may be the Anne Stokes Gothic tarot.

Emily might be right... But I was thinking it seems like the XIII Tarot?

Those are indeed from the Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot.

I love that deck. The cardstock is nice and durable and it's a very readable deck. It's one of my workhorses and my friends and clients love it.

I do need to pick up another copy, though. I bought mine secondhand and while the cards are still in perfect shape, the box was pretty beaten up and is now covered in shipping tape and the LWB was ripped to shreds when I got it. So a second copy would be for the collection, not reading.

The thing that throws most people off is that it doesn't have illustrated pips like RWS clones do. But it's still gorgeous.

Yep, that's the Anne Stokes Gothic. I also have her Necromicon Tarot. I actually started off with a coffee-cup designed by her (her "Green Man" pattern), and it tickled my funny-bone to buy Tarot decks to match the cup <grin>.

I find both of them a little bit lightweight, but quite serviceable.
