Designed by Jody Eklund, the Innovation are a beautifully crafted deck of playing cards featuring innovators who pioneered and shaped the world on a global scale. Launching on Kickstarter on 3rd March, the Innovation deck will be Jody's third campaign after the very successful Golden Spike playing cards and will be the first part of the Inventors series.
Defined by a combination of beautiful hand-illustrated artwork, elegant design and intricate details, the Innovation was initially revealed on Instagram and this has generated an interest amongst the playing cards community.
Represented in the Innovation deck are the royalty of Innovation, categorized into four suits: Illumination, Transportation, Communication, and Aviation. This deck is filled with great characters like Henry Ford, who changed the world by making the automobile affordable to everyone. The Wright brothers, who revolutionized transportation, and others that have their own unique impact and story to be told.
A few months ago I watched a documentary on the History channel called, "The Men Who Built America". In that documentary the stories of John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan were told. I was glued to the TV... I was hooked. Their stories were inspiring and I was struck by the spirit and ingenuity they showed. I decided that I should do a series of playing cards that celebrated the spirit that these kind of men demonstrated. The Inventors series was born.Innovation Playing Cards will be printed by Legends Playing Card Company (LPCC) will be available in three editions- Innovation Standard, Innovation Black (which will have foiling, metallic Ink and embossing) and Innovation Signature edition.
The Signature edition will be numbered and limited to only 1000 decks. It will feature a completely new design from the other two decks for the tuck and back, and have gold foil and embossing on the tuck.
