Don Quixote Vol. 1 Playing Cards illustrates the eccentric and memorable characters of the novel to share with the whole world. It's also an homage to the creation of Spanish novelist Cervantes on the 400th anniversary of his death this month of April.

This Vol. 1 playing card deck is based on the first volume of the Don Quixote novel and it's unique characters. In all, it will be a series of two volumes and this deck will be the first part of it.

Every part of this deck has been custom-illustrated from scratch by our design studio, Cellar Window. Each court cards represents a central character in the first volume of the Don Quixote novel. We have designed it carefully and researched books as well as old etchings of the characters to create something unique.

Risks and challenges

This will be our second project after Fuego. Our first project was very successful but not without a few setbacks. Having said that, we have learned a lot on what can be done to keep risks at a minimum.

All the designs are finished and set for printing by Legends Playing Cards and they will be handling the manufacturing and fulfillment of the decks. Although there will always be risks to every project we've made an enormous effort to streamline everything and to minimize the challenges for this deck.

And with their amazing track record, we are confident that Legends Playing Cards will do an awesome job with regards to the Printing and Fulfillment.
