About

"COMPOSERS" Luxury Playing Cards Collection, is a unique and elegant collection of playing cards, for collectors, players and magicians. where the protagonists are 7 of the greatest composers of classical and symphonic music of all time. The cards are all created with an original design.

A few months ago, I tried to imagine, like the great composers of symphonic and classical music, they would have thought of dedicating to themselves, a deck of playing cards, to share with their friends, their audience and all the people they admired their concerts, remaining fascinated by their mastery and genius. I hope the project can excite you as it has thrilled me. Thank you, to all those who will have the pleasure of supporting this project.

The 7 composers who will be part of this collection will be:

The theme of each Composer is unique and will be the color of the theme of the box, the back of the cards and the theme of the colors of the court cards. 

The back of the tuck box always contains an aphorism of the composer, like a journey through his thoughts and his philosophy. This is just one of his wonderful quotes. This, to make the memory of this extraordinary composer more vivid.

The cards. I imagined that the great composers used textures like parchment paper, to print their luxurious playing cards, to create a harmony not only symphonic but also artistic and exciting. 56 cards on 310 gsm premium German linen card stock.

The back of the cards is intended to represent the articulated design of the orchestral metal music stands used to support the symphonic scores during concerts in Theaters and Auditoriums.  

Each deck has the seal with the composer's initials, the dates of his life and the number of the deck that is part of the collection.

Gold and Silver Coins. Each composer has dedicated, a metal coin, produced in gold and silver color.

We will begin this journey starting with LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN. The theme of BEETHOVEN is dark red, and will be the color of the theme of the tuck box, the back of the cards and the color theme of court cards. Everything in the tuck box appears gold, it will be embossed and gold foil. 

Each deck has the seal with the composer's initials, the dates of his life, the number of the deck that is part of the collection, numbered individually.

The Tuck Box contains a portrait of Beethoven framed on a dark red background in a frame with an artistically decorated line, the year of birth and the year in which he left his wonderful legacy to the world. The external gold frames enhance the elegance of the box recreating a typical scenario of the period.

The back of the tuck box always contains an aphorism of the composer, like a journey through his thoughts and his philosophy.

This is just one of his wonderful quotes. This, to make the memory of this extraordinary composer more vivid.

I imagined that the great composers used textures like parchment paper, to print their luxurious playing cards, to create a harmony not only symphonic but also artistic and exciting. 56 cards on 310 gsm premium German linen card stock. 

The back of the cards is intended to represent the articulated design of the orchestral metal music stands used to support the symphonic scores during concerts in Theaters and Auditoriums.  

The LUXURY BOX is a valuable package that can contain the tuck box. it is a rigid box in black cardboard, with black foil and gold foil print with internal jacket golden fabric, velvet effect.

Risks and challenges

Project after project also increases the experience, which is made up of many small things which then become the overall success of the project. I realized that a deck of cards, not only of the special paper printed on the front and back, a deck of cards is an alchemy, which arises from an idea of ​​reflections and details not to be overlooked, from creative thinking, to the deck that is delivered to your home. Everything must be organized and not left to chance. Thoughts, concepts, calculations. Experience must guide us to do better and better to have the confidence of those who, like you, commit their precious money, without touching, without seeing, without knowing, what lies ahead. The experience with NPCC, a great productive partner, must be constantly updated, working through challenges and some delays but having learned from them and taking these lessons on board for this project.
I hope this leads to greater creative, productive and logistic efficiency, to take your desires and ideas by the hand.
Have a good journey, dear backers. Welcome on board.
