Fuego! - Day of the Dead Inspired Playing Cards

$21,762

735

The Fuego! Playing Cards is the debut deck of Cellar Window. It will have a limited print run through LPCC (Legends Playing Card Company). These cards are inspired by the works of Mexican political printmaker José Guadalupe Posada and his Calaveras and the Latin phrase "Memento Mori". Each design are all illustrated in-house in a very colorful and detailed style. The tuck case will feature the classic long flap, perforated custom stamp seal, inner calavera motif print and exterior embossing to further accentuate the design and to give added texture.
