First Look: Origins Shadows of History Playing Cards by Rick Davidson Part 2

[Update] Origins Shadow of History Playing Cards are now LIVE on Kickstarter!

A few days ago, we featured the first look of Origins Shadows of History deck, a follow-up to the successful Origins First Edition and Grail Limited Edition decks. In part 2 of the first look, designer and illustrator Rick Davidson shares with us the promo video of the deck and how the Ace of Spades is finalised.

Here's the time lapse of the development of the Ace of Spades in the Shadows of History deck of playing cards.

A look at the Queen of Hearts, inspired by history. The Rouen 1667 deck is a recreation of the source of the playing card pattern we know today.

Comparing the face cards, here are the spade cards for the Origins Shadows of History deck. The courts are vibrant, diptych jokers and the eye-catching Ace of Spades.

The Rouen 1567 hearts, meticulously redrawn from the original historic sheets.

Finally, the incredible teaser video.

[Update] Origins Shadow of History Playing Cards are now LIVE on Kickstarter!

We want to thank Rick for sharing the video and giving us a rare behind the scenes look of his design process. Campaign launches Saturday, 4 March 5pm EST.
