After having created several modern original decks of playing cards I have recently been inspired from playing cards from the past. And in this campaign I will present you 2 amazing examples of semi-transformation playing cards from the late 19th century. By supporting this campaign you will be helping bring back a piece of playing card history. All of the art was painstakingly recreated digitally from scratch.
Special thanks to "the World of Playing Cards" for providing a source of information on these and many other historical decks. Also special thanks to Josh Blaker for providing additional reference material.
Each deck will be available as a set, same faces but different back and box. These cards will be incredibly fun to use for your favorite 1 & 2 deck games.
All 4 decks will have the following features:
- Printed by USPCC on Classic Stock
- Poker Size
- Traditional Cut
- Embossed Finish
- Metallic Ink on Tuck Box
- 52 Cards + 2 Jokers
- 1 Double Back + 1 Extra
- Gilded Upgrade Available
- Limited Edition (~2,000 Standard, ~500 Gilded)
- Custom Stamp Style Seal (Standard Red, Gilded Blue)
- Illustrated by Azured Ox
- Produced by Will Roya

You can choose which decks you would like out of the 4 for each tier if you do not want an even mix. Just let me know in the reward survey. Survey will be sent close to the delivery date and not right after the campaign.
All decks will be an one-time print! Originals of these decks sell for $500+ if you can even find one. How much will these be worth someday?
Only $20 each to add-on to your reward, includes shipping. Get all 4 for $70.
You will have 2 options to upgrade to gilding or add on items; during the campaign via Kickstarter (KS) or after the campaign via PlayingCardDecks.com (PCD)
No extra shipping cost for added items if you have already pledged for an award.
Something else you want more of, let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you. Just send me a direct message.

Risks and challenges
Artwork has been pre-approved by USPCC. Some small design elements may be subject to change based on backer feedback and printer recommendations.
Besides being a super backer, I have successfully completed and delivered several of my own campaigns as well as helping & collaborating with other creators.
I really enjoy the process of creating decks with the artists and working with backers to bring the decks to life. I am in a fortunate situation to be able to cover some of the costs of producing the decks but without the help of the Kickstarter community I would not be able to bring all of my projects to life. Creating these decks is a significant investment of time and money and I am grateful for any and all support.
If there are delays or issues they will be communicated and dealt with in an open manner. As always, I appreciate any feedback. You are welcome to reach out to me directly at any time and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
