Culture Cards ™

Magazines are basic and history books are boring so we created Culture Cards™ to narrate the world around us. We identify cultural movements and release themed capsule collections inspired by our findings. Each release is anchored by our designer card decks. Unfortunately, based on the high cost of printing, we can't produce our first edition decks and companion guide without your help. 

Transformers

Transformers, a full-suite playing card deck, is a Vietnamese love story told in 54 acts (cards). It was inspired by a man’s undying love for his country. Ho Chi Minh is celebrated as the father of modern-day Vietnam because of the great lengths he went to achieve his vision for an independent, unified country. Despite decades spent at war, Vietnam is finally at the cusp of true economic development. This collection celebrates the resulting cultural transformations taking place nearly 40 years after Ho Chi Minh’s vision was realized. This limited edition deck features Vietnamese art, history, and cuisine.

Construction

Culture Card decks incorporate both minimalist and ambidextrous design (functional for left and right-handed people). The Playing Deck contains 54 cards and includes a companion editorial. This collectible designer deck is printed on 350 gsm matte finish linen card stock, housed in a heavyweight tuck box. Sourced from the world, made in New York.

Funding

I’m Evans. I studied and traveled abroad in twelve foreign countries. I just returned from a yearlong adventure through Southeast Asia. My vision is to authentically transform my observations into a single treasured experience. I am passionate about storytelling and launched Editorial Plague™ to share my findings with you.

Transformers is the first release from Editorial Plague. We envision designer card decks known for their artistic and cultural value as well as their premium quality. Funding will be used to purchase materials and cover production costs. With every stretch goal met we will both upgrade and extend the collection.
