Asylum playing cards are a hand drawn, fully customized original set of two playing cards decks – Asylum and exclusive Back to the Asylum deck.
Artwork design by Milan Colovic. Produced and printed by NoirArts (NPCC) in Europe.
Asylum is not just the deck of cards. Through the process of creating, artwork spread to all of artist's spheres of action. It became way of thinking. Obsession. Strange way of rationalization. Through time, court card characters developed they own personalities, and gave their creative contribution to the deck making. Trying to match their state of mind led to main motive - "To create cards, which looks exactly like they made by Asylum inmates". Top quality materials making cards easy to handle, but with raw and unrefined looks of authentic materials accessible to Asylum patients, we achieved that goal. Cards made from imprecisely hand torn news papers, blood'n'ink stains, wooden coins and dice with symbols scratched by nails and primitive tools.
The main word which correlates to Asylum Deck is "CUSTOM." Everything is fully customized, patiently painted and designed with special attention directed on details. Every Card, every symbol on every card, Jokers, court cards, special cards, seals, everything. Through all of its segments, Asylum is accompanied by slightly deviant background taste, which fits perfectly in the overall concept. Finding inspiration in the anthological movies and retro/cult cinematographic creations and characters, Asylum is a tribute to the masters of the silver screen such as Vincent price, Kathy Bates, Sir Anthony Hopkins...
Hearing the voice of people led us to "Back to the Asylum" deck. We carefully kept all suggestions on our minds, and incorporated them into the improved version of Asylum. Although, original Asylum deck as memory of unfulfilled dream - is still here. Available to all who supporting it.
Back to the Asylum Campaign is not just about printing the decks. It's about making things right. And fulfilling a lost dream. Every kind of support means a lot to us and it will be appreciated. No matter is it word of support, or pledge to the project. We would reward it in the best way we can - with great artwork and quality production.
