First Look: Kings of India Playing Cards by Humble Raja Part I

[Update] Kings of India Playing Cards are now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Coming soon! Kings of India is the debut deck of Humble Raja, crafted by the design-obsessed duo, Bhavesh & Reena Mistry from MontrĂ©al, who also co-run the design firm Apartment 4. With Humble Raja, they aim to use design as a means to explore India’s rich culture in a playful and modern way.

Kings of India Playing Cards is the first product of their exploration into India’s past. The deck illustrates the four greatest dynasties of India to share the extravagance and beauty of India’s royal courts.

From ancient weapons to eccentric moustaches, backers can expect to find marvelous illustrated details for each court card based on hours of research through books, architectural motifs, artifacts and folklore. Every inch of this deck has been custom illustrated from scratch, from the numbers and suits to the chest hairs on the Kings.

Stay tuned for the second part of the Kings of India first look in a few days! The project is expected to launch on Kickstarter this Wednesday, July 15th at 12:00 EST. To keep up to date on the latest happenings from Humble Raja, follow them on their Facebook page.
