About

Cthulhu Mythos Playing Cards is a BICYCLE® custom deck inspired by the short stories of author H.P. Lovecraft, and reverently illustrated by artist Rhonda Libbey. Printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

This deck of Cthulhu Mythos playing cards will feature 12 court cards (each representing a beloved Mythos character), a unique Ace, and 2 special Jokers. There are also 3 different box colors to choose from, each featuring a painting from the expressionist series “Cthulhu Dreaming” in Blue, Green or Purple. 

I have been a professional illustrator and designer for about 2 decades, but I have been a Mythos fan for even longer. I cannot tell you how excited I am to put this unique deck together. Over the next few weeks I look forward to communicating with you, and if all goes well we can unleash more awesome rewards and bring the Cthulhu Mythos to life!

Risks and challenges

After a lot of careful research and communication with other companies who have produced custom playing cards, I am fairly confident that things will go smoothly. Unforeseen circumstances could still come up, but I have done all that I can to minimize that. I have set a delivery date that might seem far away, but I believe it will allow me to create the highest quality artwork and finished product.
