Fairy Tale Tarot decks

This deviantart piece by Yamicool got me wondering whether there were any full fairytale-themed Tarot decks available out there and, lo and behold, there are.

Now, I don't for a second believe in the Tarot as a tool of divination, but I am fascinated by the imagery associated with them, which goes hand in hand with some of the imagery and stories within fairy tales really very well. I'd recommend checking out the two decks linked above and perhaps even purchasing a real set of each (although all of the images are available to view free) if you feel like it.

Kizer180's Artwork

Kizer180's site features a great deal of very dynamic superhero-themed artwork but I was - naturally - especially drawn to his fairytale work, including several pieces featuring the LRRH figure above as well as some other portraits like the Cinderella one below (which comes complete with his own spin on the tale, found back on its original page).
