Kickstarter: Steve Minty's Thorns and Roses Playing Cards Unlocks All Stretched Goals

Steve Minty launched Thorns and Roses Playing Cards on Kickstarter earlier this month and the project was quickly funded with all stretched goals now unlocked. Inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, Steve sought to approach this deck based on the themes prevalent in Shakespear's work: Life and Death. According to Steve on the project page,
The themes of life and death are represented with the motif of Thorns and Roses. Thorns embody the pain of loss and death found in these works, while the Roses the sweetness of love and life.

The decks feature four of Shakespeare's best-known works: Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, and King Lear. The Roses deck interprets these characters with an item of significance while the Thorns deck depicts their method of death. Both fully custom decks are beautifully illustrated and feature gorgeous ornate design adorned with metallic ink.

In addition to the standard decks, the Thorns and Roses Limited Edition decks will be available during the campaign. The limited edition decks feature double foiling on colored stock paper, a 1-inch diameter metal stamped seal, numbered sticker seal, and handcrafted edge gilding.

Available now on Kickstarter, pledge starts at $15 for a single deck.
