El Reino de los Muertos - Expert Edition Playing Cards


There's something cool about Guzo B's artwork; it is intricate and meticulously detailed and looks really good on a deck of playing cards. Currently on Kickstarter, El Reino de los Muertos Expert Edition Playing Cards is an artistic deck that celebrates life and death in the Mexican culture.


The deck is fully custom and retake iconic elements of Mexican culture, from pre-Hispanic times to the present day, and adapted them to the traditional function of a deck of playing cards.


As such the deck features original art for every face card from the pips, indices, and aces to the court cards featuring iconic characters from Mexican culture- La Catrina, revolutionary heroes, and pre-Hispanic gods.


The back design combines traditional elements that represent the day of the dead like the cempasúchil flower color (the traditional flower used to honor the dead), papel picado, pre-hispanic imagery and calaveras.


A lot of thought has gone into this deck. It is not just a deck of cards but a narrative, a desire to recover and exalt Mexican traditions. Printed by Cartamundi on their amazing Slim Line B9 Stock & Finish. Pledge starts at $10 on Kickstarter.
