This is a follow up to the Actuators deck project that has already been completed. A lot of people asked for black and white versions.


What is this project?

This is an alternate version of a previously successful deck here on Kickstarter.
Original link : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lancetmiller/lance-millers-new-steampunk-playing-card-deck

When I was first creating this deck I posted an image (see below) of a black and white concept drawing for the deck. People loved it so much they instantly demanded that I produce them. As I was already engaged in developing the full color version of the deck I put off the notion until after all the artwork had been completed.

Now that the original concept is being printed, I can go ahead and approach doing these black and white versions. I recently ran a poll to figure out which deck people liked of the two variations: (white with more grid like structure, or black with more depth). To my surprise, I got an overwhelming response to make both! So here they are :)

What will you do with extra funds?

Any extra funds received will be used to buy uncut sheets of the deck to give to pledges and to create merchandise to commemorate the launch of the deck. Also if enough money is raised, it will be used for professional photography, national advertisements and a video trailer.

How will you notify us of your progress?

There will be regular updates with design changes, new designs for face cards, custom artwork displays, and time-lapsed videos cataloging the creation. They will be posted in the updates section, as well as a bi-weekly progress email.
