Revealed: Introducing Requiem Playing Cards; Designer Searching for Producer/Founder


This week Swedish-based designer Lorenzo Gaggiotti unveiled his playing card project called Requiem Playing Cards by launching a Facebook page for the project. Developed over the Summer of 2013, the deck is a 100% custom designed  and features broken Hearts, Clubs with thorns, cracked Diamonds and the Spades are actually dry leaves. The deck is neither a white or black deck but actually a red deck, which certainly changes up the playing field as this is not commonly a deck color choice.



The deck's theme can be discovered by looking at the name - Requiem. According to Wikipedia....
A Requiem or Requiem Mass, also known as Mass for the dead (Latin: Missa pro defunctis) or Mass of the dead (Latin: Missa defunctorum), is a Mass celebrated for the repose of the soul or souls of one or more deceased persons, using a particular form of the Roman Missal. It is frequently, but not necessarily, celebrated in the context of a funeral.

Gaggiotti explains on his Facebook page the following about the deck's dark theme....
It´s a dark deck where bad feelings take their own place on each court and ace. A way to release bad energy and transform bad feelings in beauty.

With the reveal of the deck, Gaggiotti also mentioned he is seeking a founding partner for the deck to fund, produce and distribute the deck. In a comment on his page, he mentioned that Kickstarter was an unlikely option as he does not have a US/UK bank account to run the project. If you are interested in founding the project and support the distribution please inquire with Gaggiotti here.
