The Bohemian Gothic Tarot

by Alex Ukolov & Karen Mahony


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. All 79-cards are fully illustrated and based on ‘RWS’ established tarot meanings. Includes clear instructions with keywords.

This is a deck with which to explore the shadow sides of life; the wisdom and truth that may lie in nightmare, dark imagination and the fear of the supernatural. It’s a deck with many levels, not all of which reveal themselves immediately, so it’s best to get to know the cards over time. When you first use The Bohemian Gothic Tarot, I think you’ll find it richly evocative, fun, surprising and, in places, unsettling. As you work further with the deck, the images will begin to offer deeper insights and perceptions about the darker, hidden workings of the subconscious, and the power that horror has to both frighten and attract us.
