Kickstarter: Vermillion Playing Cards by Deryn Le

Vermillion Playing Cards is the third deck designed by Deryn Le based on a fictional casino and a tribute to one of his favorite casino, The Scarlet Pearl in D'iberville, Mississippi. On the design Deryn said,
We obviously couldn't use their likeness, imagery, or name. My favorite color is red ("vermillion" is a shade of red) and as for the gem, we opted to use diamonds because the misses love diamonds.

The face cards are pretty much standard with recolored court cards and familiar pips and indices, one would expect to find in a casino. The Ace of Diamond, Jokers, and two-way backs are custom prominently featuring a diamond.

Deryn wants to create a nice deck for everyday use. Deryn continued,
Along with being collected, we wanted The Vermillion to be thrown into a poker game, folded and torn by magicians, and sprung and cut by cardists. The price per deck should be good enough for everyone to crack open one without hesitation.

Vermillion will be printed by The United States Playing Card Company on Premium Bee stock with Linen Finish and Traditional Cut. Available now on Kickstarter for $10.
