Nouveau GEMMES is a custom deck of playing cards (poker size) designed by Karin Yan from Bona fide Playing Cards.

Nouveau GEMMES Playing Cards is the third Art Nouveau jewelry inspired deck depicting the original heroes and heroines from the 16th c. French decks, following the Nouveau BIJOUX & PERLE Playing Cards.

This edition, while staying true to the original idea, intends to bring the ultimate jewelry feel to life with a redesigned tuck, back and courts.

 

  • 100% Custom playing cards deck
  • 500 units Limited Edition (one printing, never to be reprinted)
  • Poker size
  • 54 cards
  • Printed by EPCC
  • Linen Classic Finish Coating
  • Embossed Tuck

Like the previous decks in the Nouveau Series, Gemmes is inspired in the historical and mythological characters some believe were used for the creation of the first decks in Rouen during the 16th century. As for the art style, it was inspired by Art Nouveau jewelry. Art Nouveau is a style of decorative art, architecture and design promoted and popularized in Paris in the late 19th century and characterized by intricate linear designs and flowing curves based on natural forms.

The pips and number cards keep the intricate design from previous editions, with the only exception of the index pips, which take a much simpler form in order to make the cards playable.

Risks and challenges

Like my previous projects, Nouveau GEMMES will be printed by Expert Playing Card Company. All the artwork will be submitted once the campaign is over and if everything goes smoothly, all backers should receive the decks and add ons on time. However there can always be unforseen situations and delays, either during the printing or the delivery process. Taking that into account and based on the previous experiences, we've left a generous amount of time to ensure the production and delivery of all items without delay.

Note: the renderings show the best true colors intended, but slight variances between the RGB (computer pictures) and CYMK (printing process used for playing cards) may occur. The artwork may be subjected to slight changes during and after the campaign to improve the deck, in which case all backers will be notified
