The Tao Oracle is a visual approach to the I Ching, in 64 cards. The cards are lovely, as you'd expect from Ma Dava Padma, who also created the Osho Zen Tarot.

TAO Oracle review by Paul Smith
The Tao Oracle is a 64-card oracle deck based on the Chinese I Ching system. It is published by St. Martin's Press as a deck and book combination set. The cards are 3 1/2" x 5 1/4", on study laminated cardstock. (The thickness of the cards gives them durability, but makes them slightly hard to shuffle.)
The cards are illustrated with beautiful paintings by Ma Deva Padma, whose wonderful artwork is also seen in her Osho Zen Tarot. The backs feature a red background superimposed with a pattern of 48 I Ching hexagrams, and overlaid by a complex symbolic representation of the interaction of the Yin and Yang energies with the eight I Ching trigrams and the eight directions of the compass. The backs are not reversible, but that's not really relevant for use of this deck for I Ching...
