The Graven Images Oracle is a 'system of prediction' deck of 71 cards, depicting cemetery imagery and interesting photographs of gravestones and monuments.

Now available.
The Magick Bones of Tarot is a 33-card oracle deck designed to reveal your blind spots and dark secrets and uncover your ultimate inner truth. It has stark images of arrangements of skulls and human bones on black backgrounds.
The Mortem Oraculum - the Death Oracle - has 22 cards evoking the beauty and inspiration of death. The cards, rich in animal imagery and alchemical symbols, were hand-painted in human blood.
The Santa Muerte Tarot is inspired by a female saint from Mexican religious culture - Our Lady of Holy Death. This 78 card tarot has superb artwork that is ironically full of life, depicting Santa Muerte and her skeleton cohort acting out the Rider-Waite style tarot scenes.
The Tarot of the Dead is a humourous Tarot deck with scenes featuring empty-eyed skeletons in place of the more usual fully-fleshed human figures. The deck theme was inspired by the Mexican festival, the Day of the Dead. Originally self-published by the author, it's now available in a mass-produced edition from Llewellyn.
