Hello - and thank you for taking the time to look at my Kickstarter campaign! I'm hoping to fund this lovely deck to be printed in the USA by USPCC in a limited edition (to be finished September or October of 2019).  This deck combines my two career tracts, Graphic Design and Animation, by featuring flip-book style animation on both sides.  It is visually based on NYC and its art deco style; should this first "clockwork" become popular I would like to make this the beginning of a series based upon other international cities.

Do know that the animation on the backside is "event neutral," meaning that one cannot tell what is on the faces of the cards by studying and memorizing the individual backsides of the deck. You're safe from cheaters!

This will be printed standard CMYK process, no metallic inks will be used on this deck.

The animation on the faces of the deck includes a speedy clock, my logo (which includes a raven landing and taking-off), and in the crescent moving clockwork with letters passing under a magnifying glass - hmmm . . . what words do they spell?  Included will be instructions on returning the deck to its original order to view the animation.  To see all of the face cards and a demonstration of the animation, you can view the movie above.

I hope you enjoy owning and using this deck as much as I enjoyed making it; though it has not been my most labor-intensive deck, it has definitely been the most technically challenging.  I encourage you to purchase at least two, one for collection and one for usage.  I will be using Gambler's Warehouse to distribute the decks.

Risks and challenges

This is my first "large scale" deck and I hope the monetary goal is not too intimidating. It includes the price of the production of 1000 decks (USPCC minimum) and the shipping to the minimal amount of backers needed to pay for the production. I will be using Gambler's Warehouse to distribute the decks.
