About

The theme for the series of cards that I created is the biblical Apocalypse. Each of the suits represents one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. I altered the four traditional suits (club, diamond, heart, and spade) so that each represents their respective horseman. A deck of cards is appealing because it provides not only a design to be admired but a game to be played. I also like the idea of creating something that is tangible. A deck of cards presents the user with the rare opportunity to "touch the art".

The cards will be printed by MPC Playing Cards on 300gsm premium quality stock.  The majority of funds will go to printing and shipping expenses. I have already designed and printed the deck in full. So rest assured, it will get to you if you order one. This project will simply give me the chance to fine tune the designs, along with giving me the chance to mass produce and distribute them.
