Arcanum Playing Cards. The link between life and death


Something different and dark. This is ARCANUM.

Arcanum is a deck of cards designed by Alex Vovk and Vladimir Kuksin, both partners of Tortoise Design Studio, based in Ukraine, Kiev.

This is their very first project of playing cards and it has been launched through Kickstarter and produced by  Gambler’s Warehouse. Despite of the apparent sinister aspect of the images, the inspiration of the deck is really positive. Their belief: Remembering our roots – we are still human beings”.

They want people remembering their loved ones and that will give them good luck and success in their life. Arcanum is, in its own definition a mystery, something connecting the living and the dead. It is closely associated with the celebration, which takes place from October 31 to November 2 annually and known as the Triduum of All Hallows.

The deck will be printed by the USPCC using metalic inks in the cards and with all the extras (embossing, custom inner and gold foil) in tuck box.

Good luck!
