ENEIDA Playing Cards. Beauty inspired by a classic epic poem

In 1798, the poem “Eneida” by the Ukranian writer Ivan Kotliarevsky was published. In 2011, one of its multiples reprints in 2011 included as a complement a beautifully illustrated bridge deck with the same name was created and it became a huge success. Now, Fullhouse has launched a new edition: ENEIDA.

Eneida tells a story inspired by Virgil’s Latin epopee and adapted to Ukrainian folklore and culture. This literary adaptation was illustrated on playing cards in a sublime way with the talent of Oksana Ternavskaya, who picked up in her drawings the beauty full of details and symbols. Even the numbered cards are decorated with different scenes. The illustrations of the new edition preserve the essence of the original with some changes.

 

 

Two different editions have been created for the campaign. On the one hand, a limited deck with a 1000 units print-run with an updated back, poker indexes, 55 cards and a luxurious finish in the tuck case that will include a burgundy pearlscent paper and embossed gold foil.

 

 

On the other hand, another edition will be produced with a more economical paper and finish but more faithful to the original version, using the Cyrillic indexes, a different back and a tuck case quite similar to its source of inspiration.

 

 

As it could not be otherwise, the Ukrainian company NPCC (Noir Arts) will carry out the production with the care and quality according to the beauty of the cards.

If you like art made cards, do not hesitate to visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
