After trying a few months ago, Michele Spatola continues to pursue his dream and relaunches, with several changes, his new campaign of ANTAGON ROYAL Playing Cards.
Michele has worked as crazy for this relaunch and has assembled a set of beautiful hyperrealistic illustrations of women made by talented designers to be depicted int he court cards and jokers. These women are the real protagonists of a deck that blends elegance and refinement in its designs.
The numbered cards are delicate and this time worn backgrounds reinforce their medieval inspiration..
The back shows a traditional intricate design made with natural and organic shapes.
The main change has to do with the printing company. To better fit to a quality and quantity balance, NPCC will produce them so the tuck case will be much more luxurious with embossing and foil. In addition, two versions of the deck will be offered during the campaign: the Royal (standard) and the Royal Red Seal, which will be wrapped in a black paper with foil stamping and a cutsom wax seal. A completely handmade work that will have a limited and numbered edition.
This is, in my opinion, the very best version of this deck so I am sure this time these cards will become real. If you like, visit the project website and raise your pledge.
