Rosicrucian Tarot of the Golden Dawn by Raphaela. This is, in my opinion, the best full-color art I've seen for a strict interpretation of the Golden Dawn Tarot. Cards have been shown before on Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn site with the artist listed as V.H. Soror F.D.A., but the page linked to was non-existent. Right now prints of the Major Arcana are on sale, but a deck will hopefully become available in 2006.
The Classic Golden Dawn Tarot black and white - limited first edition of 1200 decks, numbered and signed by the authors. This is the best choice for coloring your deck yourself.

Love is in the Earth Crystal Tarot: THE Tarot for the Millenium by Melody (artistically a Thoth variant rather than intentionally Golden Dawn or Thelemic)
Ancient Egyptian Tarot by Clive Barrett (blends RWS and Thoth concepts and imagery rather than being based on the Falconnier type decks)
There are those who would classify the I am One Tarot as a Thoth variant, and there are some commonalities, for instance Knight Queen Prince Princess court structure and rather abstract art. This deck is actually a variant of The New Tarot for the Aquarian Age by John Cooke and Rosalind Sharpe. While some imagery dovetails with Thoth, the imagery and meanings are just too different for me to classify it as a Thoth variant. Decide for yourself by examining all the card images.
Note on Correspondence:
As not everyone has the same understanding of the correspondence between Knights, Princes, Kings, Sons, and Fathers, I have lined up by astrological correspondence if shown or mentioned in the book - Knight for Leo to Virgo and Prince for Aries to Taurus. If astrological correspondences line up differently (as with Cosmic where traditional Queen correspondences are shown on the King), I look for Fire = Knight/King, Air = Prince/King. If those are not visible, I have looked for stags versus bulls or oxen, hexagram versus orb and cross, flowers versus grain fields, and so forth.
