Default Tarot cards

Hi all,
If any of you are into tarot and know of some really cool decks, please post which ones you like and why. I'm looking for alternatives to the oft-used Rider-Waite-Smith, for a potential project. The more odd and avant-garde the better, but even if they follow the RWS closely, let me know what it is you like about them.

The world opens up... when you do.

Since you aren't being traditionalist about such things, I'd check out the Hollywood Tarot. I think it utilizes icons that can reach some people more than other types. I also like the DIY aspect, and think it can lead to stronger readings.

They aren't for everyone, but check them out.

I adore the Wildwood deck. The art draws one in as well as being beautiful. The archetypes work for me - I generally don't care for the more traditional tarot imagery and archetypes.

Here is a link to my favorite card from the deck 'Joy' - http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...Ox0529xCiwWx4U

Here is a link describing the deck with some card images http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/wildwood/ Also that website - www.aeclectic.net - has so many different tarot decks listed. It's fun to check out!

I have a few decks. My favorites are my Jasmine Becket Griffith, they are beautiful but a little difficult to handle and My voodoo deck because they were my first and a gift from my dad.
I have a third deck that I actually use but I don't have them on me and don't remember the name of them.

My favorite deck is The Celtic Tarot by Julian De Burgh. I love the imagery and the feel of it.
