About

Moderne Playing Cards will be printed by The Expert Playing Card Company. This custom deck will feature metallic gold and silver ink on the front and backs of the cards as well as the tuck box. The tuck box will also be embossed on the front, back and sides. A limited edition of 1,000 will be produced.

The title of this custom deck comes from the term Art Moderne, which is another name for Art Deco. This Art Deco styled deck features custom design and illustration on every card.

The Court Cards and Jokers feature custom art deco styled illustration.  The design of the cards retain the classic elements of modern English playing cards like a Suicide King, a One-eyed King, and One-eyed Jacks. There are also traditional details like scepters, flowers, leaves, and an orb. The weapons held by the Jacks and Kings are influenced by early French playing cards from the 16th century.

The Spot or Number cards feature the gold and silver art deco border on all of the card fronts, which is integrated with the pips for a unique design.

I hope you will consider adding my custom cards to your collection.

Design Update:

The 'Art Deco' was removed from Moderne Art Deco Playing Cards. They are now Moderne Playing Cards. The 'Art Deco' was unnecessary.

Risks and challenges

The deck will be printed by The Expert Playing Card Company in New York. They estimate about 90 days to print and ship the decks. Once I receive the decks I will immediately begin shipping them to the backers.
