The Prisma Visions for sure, but among the decks I own, the Mary El and the Linestrider are right up there as well in terms of art; unfortunately the cardstock of both decks is a bit of a letdown.

Oh, there are *so* many votes for the Prisma Visions. Wow. And I had just managed to de-enable myself..sigh..

My vote for the most beautiful deck would go to the Morgan-Greer. Every single card there is just lovely.
The runner up would be Nicoletta Ceccoli.

I can't choose between those three:

Celtic Wisdom
Dreams of Gaia Tarot
Prisma Visions

I couldn't narrow it down to just one. These are the four that really stand out for me:

No more Lebanese Tarot decks will be printed, so I feel very lucky to have one.

Thank you both, Richard and Nisaba. I just learned about this deck through your posts here - and am heartbroken to learn how scarce it now is....

Also the Pagan Otherworlds. A breathtaking deck.

Yes yes yes. Everything about Pagan Otherworlds just makes my heart soar, from the box with its customs stamp to the cardstock to the crazy beautiful old-mastery painterly art. AND - just got a 1995 Crystal. THERE's a deck begging to be reissued in large format...

I am too visually oriented to work with a deck I don't find aesthetically pleasing no matter how good it is. My favourites:

William Blake

And I can't help it, but the Noblet Marseille makes me smile. Out of all the Marseille, it is the most beautiful.

I saw some comments above on the China. Gorgeous, flawless art, but doesn't feel like tarot to me.

Chrysalis Tarot
Alice Tarot
Harry Potter Tarot
Illuminated Tarot (have a shimmer, a glitter and a starlight version of Herzer's beautiful deck)

Surprised but relieved to see my three most expensive decks made the list. Hey... I did splurge for a reason
You know what? I can do it...
