Kickstarter: Bloodlines Playing Cards by Riffle Shuffle

Here's another cool release from the team at Riffle Shuffle, this time from the talented graphic designer Gregory Darroll. Currently seeking funds on Kickstarter, Bloodlines playing cards are a stained-glass looking surface with fresh and fun illustration style.

The artwork on the deck are cleverly broken down into multi-faceted geometrical grits. Each shape is filled in with a pop of basic colour, encircled with a thick outline, giving the whole design a look of stained glass of a cathedral. According to the description on the campaign page,
This deck is far from being as motionless as s glass panel. In fact, all of the small details come together in a dynamic design that is sure to attract many looks.

Two decks are on offer during the campaign: Ruby Red and Emerald Green. Gregory has chosen a refreshing combination of hues of green and yellow lined with a dark green line for the green deck and warmer tones of red and yellow with a pop of aquamarine with burgundy lining for the red deck. Upon opening the box, you will discover a lovely “Good Luck” message on the inner flap and two decorative skulls on the smaller flaps.

The card backs feature a symmetrical design presided over by two decorative skulls organized in two opposing arches. The sculls are holding up their hands, each of them showing one of the colours of the whole design. Interestingly enough, the design takes up the whole surface of the cards, rather than leaving the traditional white frame.

The court card designs are gorgeous! They are designed to look like beautifully colourful tinted glass panel, complete with depictions of Kings, Queens and Jacks. The cards feature a small sign of the suits and a letter, all broken down to the smallest colourful sections.

The Aces take a closer look at each of the geometric renditions of the suits, each with meticulously detailed ornamentations. Finally, the surprisingly fierce design of the Jokers. The skulls from the back sides of the cards are dressed up in Aztec king looking attire, are each proudly holding two axes.

Bloodline Playing Card will be printed by Cartamundi on the famous True Linen B9 finish. Each edition is only LIMITED to 2500 decks. Check it out on Kickstarter NOW!
