Olde Bones: Deck of the Dead custom deck of playing cards. Designed by Emily Ross and printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

The Olde Bones deck is deeply personal. Inspired by an elegant death style of imagery, the deck contains themes of death, magic, and fate woven throughout its narrative. Although fun and mischievous at times, this narrative explores our struggle to overcome mortality through fame, memory, or even good old-fashioned necromancy. Each card is infused with heart and passion in a journey to explore these fundamental questions. The result will be a story told through 54 individual works of art.

This deck will be printed by the legendary USPC - producer of the highest quality playing cards found in casinos, magic shops, and retailers around the world.

Our stretch goals will consist of added reward levels and upgrades to the deck itself. In addition, we will be releasing more rewards as our project evolves. Check them out below! 

This project would not be possible without the support of the Kickstarter community.  Thank you so much for visiting our page.

Risks and challenges

With the artwork near completion, the challenge that remains is on the production side. This risk is mitigated through regular communication with the USPCC, the company that will be printing our deck to the highest quality standard. Although they are the leading manufacturer of playing cards in the world, it is possible unforeseen circumstances may arise. We are committed to delivering the highest quality product and will deal with any such issues to assure we achieve this commitment. We have also factored in a realistic delivery date that will give us room to resolve any potential issues.
