The Cathar Tarot moulds the 78 cards of tarot to the archetypes, spiritual beliefs and initiatory journey of the European Cathar order. The deck is a partnership between John Matthews and Wil Kinghan, who each have created several tarot decks, and draws on Gnosticism and Grail symbolism as well as Cathar belief.
The Clair de Lune Lenormand is an atmospheric 38-card deck, designed to give the feeling of being under the moonlight.

It's a traditional Lenormand deck, and also includes extra Man and Lady cards.

The deck has almost reached completion, and is now funding through Kickstarter.

The Faerie Enchantments Oracle is a 40-card deck based on Celtic magick and symbolism, and illustrated with Faerie energies, goddesses and gods. It's designed for creating your own personal enchantments, so the backs of the cards have magical correspondences and information.
The Flowers of the Night Oracle is a 44-card deck for floramancy (flower reading), meditation, daily inspiration, journal prompts and learning the basics of botanical exploration. The cards feature flowers and creatures of the night drawn in pale colours on a black background, giving them a wonderful moonlit feel.

The deck and 200-page companion book is complete and due for release later in 2015.
The Orbifold Tarot expresses tarot symbolism through the geometry of circles, using a combination of numbers and the four elements to create simple and complex shapes that represent each card. The deck is now funding through Indiegogo.

It's designed in a deliberately rough, primitive style based on hand coloured woodcuts and manuscript illuminations from the 15th century. Available in two limited editions: coloured and uncoloured.
The Singing Serpent Tarot is based firmly in tradition, with a 'unique twist, coil and slither'. The 78 black and white, hand-drawn cards each have a serpent present on the card, and are deliberately simply styled. Self-published by the artist and due for release at Samhain 2014.
The Sophia Wise One Oracle has 66 unusual petal-shaped, hand-painted cards for contemplation or advice.
