    Culturae Animalis - Daemon pack

    One (1) deck of Culturae Animalis art playing cards
    - Includes a unique display card that I will design, illustrate and publish with the animal/pet of your choice, based on the culture/historical period of your choice. I will only print one of these cards ever, making your deck a one of a kind.

    One (1) Ultra Limited Edition Uncut Sheet
    - You receive one of my own five (artist proof) uncut sheets, numbered and stamped with my personal seal.

    One (1) Cultural Experiment
    - I will repeat a word of your choice every day to my 10-month-old son, in any language, unbeknownst to my wife, until he says his first words. Assuming three gloriously dastardly backers, we can then all revel in the scene of my wife hearing 'cabbage', 'poopsickle' and 'lily-liver’d' before he says 'mummy'. I will keep you informed and post the results on social media. (No obscene words or racial or sexual slur. I won't teach my son to belittle others for any amount of money, not unless it's also adorable).

    0ne (1) Animal will have you as their Guardian Angel
    - Through WWF I will adopt an endangered Amur Leopard. There are only 90 left in the wild, so it'll be a job finding it to tell it the good news. We will then talk of many things, of mountain peaks - and balls of strings, and I will help it compose a quite thorough poem that will leave you so lost for words that you will need to ask for directions.
