In the first part of our First look at the upcoming Inception Playing Cards, we will look at the three different decks on offer.
From Black Ink Playing Cards (Black Ink), Inception Playing Cards are a meticulously crafted deck about the people who were vanguards in their fields. Their ideas laid the bedrock for growing fields of knowledge, discovery and invention. They dared to ask why, and unleashed knowledge that touches every part of our modern day existence.
According to Jody Eklund, founder of Black Ink;
My inspiration is Leonardo Da Vinci's Lunday Knots and I want to showcase that as well as a new style for me. I will be doing the Leonardo Da Vinci Sketch look instead of the black line work that I have done in the past.Inception Playing cards will be made up of 3 decks, Intellectus, Illustratum and Inception Signature Edition. Each deck will have custom illustrated courts, aces and jokers. Much of the design elements were inspired by Da Vinci’s obsession with celtic knots. The result is a timeless blend of grandeur and elegance.
The tuck for Intellectus will be a beautiful dark blue box, while llustratum will be a beautiful dark red box. Both comes with intricate copper foiling. The Signature edition will be limited to the Kickstarter campaign and will features embossing and intricate copper foiling on a beautiful dark brown box. All three decks will a different Ace of Spades, King of Spades and backs.
Inception Playing Cards will be printed by Legends Playing Card Co on their popular Classic Finish stock and will be available on Kickstarter from April 12th. Join us next week when we talk to Jody and find out more about Inception Playing Cards.
