DEVASTATION Playing Cards. There is still hope

The tragedy of war is that it uses man’s best to do man’s worst.

Harry Emerson Fosdick

 

The perfectionist and talented artist, Jody Eklund (Black Ink Playing Cards), after the success of Innovation,  has just launched a new deck: DEVASTATION.

Devastation reflects on the innate (and contradictory) human need of using weapons to kill their own kind. Inspired by the use of weapons of mass destruction along the different periods of history, the cards depict the two sides of a coin made by those who created the weapons and those who worked to mitigate their devastating effects.

The designs are beautiful and intricate, with a really stunning combination of colors in the tuck case and illustrations with Jody’s usual style simulating engravings and lithographs.

 

 

There will be two editions: the Standard Edition, completely customized and with a really nice finish and the Limited Edition, a work of art that includes metallic ink on the cards and a beautiful tuck case fully embossed and foiled too. Both will be printed by Legends Playing Cards Company.

In addition, 500 Limited Decks will include a special numbered seal and a signed card, and will be presented in a luxurious leather case with Black Ink’s logo.

 

 

It is, without doubt, one of the most interesting masterpieces of the artist so, if you do not want to miss it, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
