THE PLANETS: MARS Playing Cards. The fourth stop in a trip through the solar system

After MercuryVenus and Earth editions, David Goldklang (Vanda Cards) continues his journey through the solar system with the fourth deck of the series: THE PLANETS: MARS.

 

 

Illustrated by the Serbian Srdjan Vidakovic (Widakk), this series is dedicated to the planets of the Solar System. The artist’s work combines vintage aesthetics with elegance and luxury finishes. This fourth deck is dedicated to Mars, the red planet.

Although we have usually imagined the Martians as strange creatures, advanced, with weird biological configurations and bright colors (usually green), the artist has kept the interpretation of the inhabitants of the planet as warriors, exclusively male, with human aspect and gifted of armor and ancient weapons. The aesthetic essence of the series is thus maintained, with a retro look of engraved designs and a simple but effective color combination. That simplicity in the designs and the white backgrounds preserve the perfect playability of the cards.

 

 

Like in the previous ones, two editions will be created with the same cards and different tuck cases. The Standard Edition will be the most luxurious case made so far in the series. The print run of 2000 decks (at least) will have black stock, red and white holographic foil, embossing and inner foil printing. The Limited Edition, with only 500 decks, will be made with dark blue stock, gold and silver foil and a numbered seal.

The tuck case is an authentic work of art that will be created by Clove St. Press using a direct printing technology in which the embossing and the foil create authentic masterpieces. With two different foils both outside and inside, these tucks are simply stunning.

 

 

The cards will be printed by the USPCC and one of them will be part of a solar system map with others in the previous and following decks of the series.

 

 

The campaign has just begun and will undoubtedly follow the trail of its predecessors becoming a real success. If you want to complete your collection visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
