From Guru Playing Card Company, Divine Art Playing Cards is a fully custom deck inspired by Hindu Mythology. This unique deck has been designed with mass appeal in mind, it features block printed traditional illustrated Indian folk art adorned with exquisite elements and patterns inspired from Mehndi.
The court cards showcase various gods and goddeses as well as their mounts (vahanas) on each suit. The aces incorporate symbolism from Indian mythology and follow the same sequence as the courts. Concentric lines define volume and create a rhythmic unity, and the underlying geometrical forms generate a pleasing multi-dimensional effect.
The number cards are meticulously designed. Included is a hint of a hidden mathematical order, giving a universal appeal at the level of archetypes, which completely transcends the usual traditional pip arrangements. Also, the contrasting pale and dark pip colours are very clear and enhance the legibility of the design.
The unique back design incorporates elements from Indian mythology & folk art. This is also reflected on the tuck box. Divine Art Playing Cards will be printed by Expert Playing Card Co on their popular classic stock. Pledge starts from AUD$17 (~USD$13) with free worldwide shipping.
At the time of writing, the project is only 19% funded with 21 days to go. If you want to support Divine Art Playing Cards, you can find it on Kickstarter here!
