Marseilles is a style or a very large category of many different decks, not the name of a single deck. There are many versions of the Marseilles tarot, including one by Jodorowsky from his Tarot phase, and countless others. Here are some Marseilles-inspired decks that do not exactly qualify as pure Marseilles but evoke the same aesthetic. If you want to go further afield, here are medieval and Renaissance themes decks.

Heather Hall sells reproduction medieval playing cards, including a Tarot deck based on the Rosenwald Tarot. You can order her cards by using the contact form on her website; it looks like they're also available here.
