The Fenestra Tarot is a pretty deck, with 78 soft, watercolour, almost sepia-toned cards. It roughly follows the Rider-Waite format in the tarot scenes, surrounding them with large, decorative borders. New from US Games.

Fenestra Tarot review by Hemera
Fenestra Tarot is a new deck by the Thai artist Chatriya who is also the illustrator of the Wiccan Cards (Llewellyn 2006). US Games web pages say that her art combines elements of Art Deco, Egypt, mythology and Japanese Manga. And so it does. Fenestra is Latin for “window” and all cards have window-like frames, different in the majors and minors. I am normally not a great fan of frames and borders, because they often seem to water down the artwork (especially if they are white). But here the frames are really an essential part of the whole card and they seem to intensify the power of each card.
