THE PLANETS: JUPITER Playing Cards. Each time colder, each time more beautiful

The trip through the Solar System is becoming faster and, if a little less than a month ago David Goldklang (Vanda Cards) offered us the Mars campaign, he now launches the fifth deck of the series: THE PLANETS: JUPITER.

 

 

Illustrated by the Serbian Srdjan Vidakovic (Widakk), this PLANETS 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 giant planet.

This time Srdjan has created illustrations inspired by the mythological chapter in which Zeus (the Greek alter-ego of Jupiter) is transformed into a huge white bull. Based on this story of strength and power, this interpretation of the Jovians shows us creatures whose faces remind us of a single eyed bull with the crown of the king of all gods. 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 with a print run of 2000 decks (at least) will have black stock, purple 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 it has achieved a fantastic funding success. If you want to complete your collection visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
