MASCHERATA is the new deck by Emmanuel Valtierra Illustrator (EVIL) which is inspired by old illustrations of masks and modern renaissance style disguises. This is also the third installment after ANGELOLOGIE and DEMONOLOGIE that uses this colored-handmade-engraved type of art. One last deck is remaining in this series set to be launched in a future Kickstarter campaign.
All the chosen masks were carefully selected to represent their suits. For the Kings we selected imposing masks like the plague doctor, my favorite, the Queens are beautiful female masks, for the Jacks we have animals to illustrate the cards and finally for the Jokers we have some cool masked jesters ready to entertain the public.
For the back of the card, we have chosen the green color to be dominant. This is because we want our 4 decks to have a different color. We already used red and blue for our previous decks.
Previously, I had the values of each card inside a box to resemble the old books first page letters but I decided to erase them and this way will be easier to identify while playing with them.
All the illustrations were made by hand and retouched in Photoshop.
Just like the last 2 decks, this one will be printed at Legends.
- 52 Playing cards
- 2 Jokers
- Custom back card design
- Hand drawn illustrations
- Original tuck box
ANGELOLOGIE & DEMONOLOGIE
There are a few decks left from my previous campaigns, ANGELOLOGIE & DEMONOLOGIE, the first two parts of this series of decks. Make sure to get them if you missed them. Printed in LPCC.
TUCK BOX DESIGN
The dice will be molded in "Plasticos de Mexico" in 2 different colors, black and white. Instead of points, we selected some symbols from the renaissance times. You can see the value of the symbols at the bottom of the photo 1 - 6 (left to right).
