We cordially invite you to witness Edgar Allan Poe’s macabre creations as imagined through the veil of artist David Edgerly’s soul. Be here first hand at the marvelous crafting of a deck of beautifully rendered playing cards that no collector of the great Edgar Allan Poe can live without. This Limited Edition deck of 54 playing cards is derived from such Poe classics as “The Masque of the Red Death”, “Murders on the Rue Morgue”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and “The Black Cat” as well as some of his more obscure works that true Poe fans will immediately recognize such as “Hop-Frog”, “The Gold Bug”, “The Oval Portrait”, and “Berenice”.
Our Kickstarter campaign for a fine deck of playing cards inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe awaits your approval.
The Aces, Face Cards and Jokers are based on different characters from Poe's stories and Poems for a total of 18 illustrated cards. The deck will be printed by USPCC and feature the Bicycle Brand. The cards will be in magnificent full color.

At $13,000.00 we will unlock a hardback book of the art from the Poe deck. It will feature the black and white and color artwork from all of the cards as well as quotes from the stories and descriptions of the creative process by Dave Edgerly. The book is 5" x 8"and all of the copies will be signed by the artist and will be available for $30 ($40 international) as an add on.
We will be giving all of you a digital pdf of the book for free to reward you for your support!
We will only be printing one run of this deck, so the decks will be Limited Edition, so be sure to purchase multiple decks!
Once this campaign is over, you shall find these cards nevermore!
“You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”
“A Dream Within a Dream” -Edgar Allan Poe
Help us realize our dream, Kickstarters!
Risks and challenges
There are always many challenges in a project like this. We have done extensive research on every challenge we will face, and have already had conversations with the representatives from the USPCC. We also have a great team to help fulfill all pledges.
We do not anticipate any printing issues. David Edgerly has over 10 years of experience working as a professional artist and is used to working within deadlines. USPCC states it takes up to 6 weeks after approval, so we're setting a deadline of 10 weeks after funding just to be safe.
We don't anticipate any shipping issues and have contacted a shipping company to handle shipping.
David will be designing cards during the campaign and should finish within a month after the campaign closes. We would love your input and suggestions to make this the best deck possible.
Shoot us your pledge so we can get this deck to you as soon as possible!
The deck will be put into production just as soon as our campaign is done and goals met!
