ENTWINED: SUMMER Playing Cards. The fusion between man and nature through dance
Following the success of their Alis Luminis campaign, the charming Old Gravity team of Ritu and Bivas are back again with their most ambitious card project yet: ENTWINED: SUMMER.
The art of Old Gravity is characterized by its delicacy and its colorful harmonies. The illustrations, completely hand-drawn with advanced digital techniques, are extremely beautiful and arise from an inspiration that combines dance and nature. The aesthetic traps the viewer in a symphony of artistic freedom.
The beautiful drawings depicted in the court cards show the fusion between man and nature through dance. Animals and characters coming from a dreamlike inspiration materialize in warm colors, typical of the summer season that this edition represents.
The large aces play with natural forms of leaves that also infect the symbols of the suits.
Even the jokers want to demonstrate their artistic skills by dancing among butterflies.
The numbered cards are delicate and original. The pips are revealed according to their number like leaves on the branches of a tree.
The back an elegant swan in a richly decorated symmetrical composition. Its beauty stands out even more thanks to the use of a shiny foil.
The tuck case is a work of goldsmithing, with embosing and double foil. A jumping ballerina adorns the back surrounded by vine branches.
Two color variations have been created for this edition: Summer Gold and Summer Rose. Both will share designs but will have different foil colors on the back and on the tuck case.
Additionally, an amazing collector’s case has been created that will include both decks and a commemorative coin in a luxurious fully ornamented box.
This is the first of the editions of the Entwined series that will travel through the four seasons of the year showing their own personality. Together, all the tuck cases will form a beautiful composition of the tree of life, a universal symbol present in all kinds of religions and philosophies.
Apart from all the amazing extras like the embossing or the foil in tuck and backs, some stretch goals will be unlocked such as custom seals, inner foil design and other surprises.
The decks will be printed by Noir Arts (NPCC), experts in high quality printing with absolutely incredible finishes.
