About

Don Quixote Playing Cards Vol.2

$13,126

Don Quixote Vol. 2 Playing Cards is a rendering of the bizarre and unforgettable characters of the Don Quixote novel. It reimagines the treasured personalities of the timeless story into a deck of cards. 

This "Clavileño" playing card deck is based on the second volume. Playing with characterization in illustration, the deck is also influenced by the setting and plot to fully put into context this everlasting tale.

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 second volume of the Don Quixote, and to be able to design it carefully, our studio has done rigorous research on the novel including studying old etchings to fully illustrate the magic of the narrative.

Based on what Miguel Cervantes wrote, Don Quixote Vol. 2 Clavileño gives you a glimpse of the lives of it's characters. Custom-illustrations on these playing cards will allow you to revisit the beloved characters that the Hidalgo Don Quixote meets during his travels as a knight errant throughout Spain.

 

Each character is illustrated in great detail that befits the enduring reputation of a novel that stood the test of time.

Risks and challenges

This will be our third project after Fuego and the first volume of Don Quixote. Both were 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 LPCC 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. With their amazing track record, we are confident that the 'Legends' will do an awesome job with regards to the Printing and Fulfillment.
