Savage Majesty is an intricately and lovingly painted playing card deck by the artist Leslie Casilli. Inspired by creatures of high fantasy, it features four fantastical races; the Dragons, Zeffurs, Pheonix, and Jazzercorn, each of which represent one of the four suits.
The intention of the project was to create a deck which featured colorful and intensely detailed designs that focused on unique creature creation yet stayed true to traditional playing card composition. A defined inner border allows the cards to be able to be read quickly and accurately. The inverted heads stay true to traditional card design. Custom pips make the deck feel unique and exciting, yet are easily recognizable.
After almost two years of painting, the artwork for the deck is complete! With your help I would love to bring the dream of Savage Majesty to reality!
Savage Majesty will be printed by Legends Playing Card Company, a leader in high quality playing cards. The Deck features the super high quality Diamond finish and has a hard flex, thin paper with Legends super smooth 'Diamond Cut' edges . It is embossed similar to Bicycles "Air Cushion Finish", but will last over 5x as long.
Increase your pledge by the following amount to add any of these additions to your tier. You will be messaged asking what it is you are adding due to the possibility of Limited Editions becoming sold out. If purchasing a Limited Edition please reply in a timely manner to ensure your print is reserved.
Each piece of Savage Majesty was painted at 12"x18" and 350 DPI, with the utmost attention paid to detail and finish so that the face cards, card back, and Jokers could be available as high quality prints.
These prints are Archival Quality on a beautiful Lustre paper. They are rated to last over 100 years in normal lighting conditions and measure 12"x18" which includes a 3/4" surrounding border for easy matting and framing.
Each design belongs to a limited run of only 50 prints, and once they are sold out they will never be printed again. The Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered within the lower border of each print, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Risks and challenges
Since all of the artwork for the deck is already complete, there is no risk involved on my end in terms of hitting any deadlines in the creation process. The only problems that may occur is in the printing process. This is my first time creating a playing card deck, so I am not sure what kind of issues may arise when communicating any changes/adjustments that we might need after the hard proof with the printing company. LPCC is a very professional company however, so I expect everything to go smoothly and without a hitch.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
