Pure Imaginations Projects have recently launched their new deck of playing cards, Three Little Pigs on Kickstarter. Founder Derek McKee has long been inspired by classic stories. The idea for a Three Little Pigs themed deck came to mind as a continuation of PIP’s vision of transforming classic stories into playing cards.
From Les Méliès to Sleepy Hollows, the Three Little Pigs deck is the next installment of the Pure Imagination Projects story series. I always thought that some of the most beautiful artwork was found in vintage woodblock prints, and that inspiration definitely shines through our ornate, floral back design.
Beautifully illustrated by London-based illustrator Joe White, the story of the Three Little Pigs is brilliantly translated into cards, with each pig representing an ace and the wolf as the spade.
Staying true to the classic portrait style of face cards, The Three Little Pigs shed new light on a common image, integrating the theme seamlessly into the court cards.
The Jokers depict the bubbling cauldron the wolf falls into at the end of the story so ironically, but intentionally so, the “most important” and “least important” parts of the deck are occupied by the wolf.
In collaboration with Clove St. Press, the tuck case is sure to impress. With four metallic foils and multilevel embossing and debossing on a premium paper stock, The Three Little Pigs’ tuck case is reminiscent of Victorian-era book covers. Stunning!
The deck will be printed by the USPCC on Bee stock using their Q1 Casino-Grade Standards. At the time of writing, the project is only 8% funded with 29 days to go. If want to support the Three Little Pigs Playing Cards, you can find it NOW on Kickstarter! Pledge starts from $12.
