Kings Wild Project’s Wizard of OZ Playing Cards Drops Today!


Kings Wild Project’s Wizard of OZ playing cards drops today! The beautiful deck celebrates the classic story of The Wizard of Oz and comes with an Emerald City green and gold color palette designed to resemble a classic book. The wrap-around tuck box features wear-and-tear that looks like you have the book itself, sitting on the shelf. 



Inside, the deck features original illustrations by Jackson Robinson, inspired by the original William Wallace Denslow illustrations of the L. Frank Baum tale. Jackson told Kardify,
I wanted to create a unique deck that paid homage to the original character illustrations from the book.

From the rough-looking wicked witch to the merry band of friends like the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Cowardly lion all the court cards revive century-old characters in a brand-new light. 

 
So many people are accustomed to ruby red slippers and a wicked witch with a green nose, flying broom and a long pointy nose, when none of those iconic elements were introduced into culture until the movies came out years later in Technicolor.
I wanted to push past the tinsel town interpretation and bring back my own versions of the original illustrations. Wizard of oz is a deck full of both color and lively characters that help tell an age-old and loved story.

The Wizard of Oz playing cards drops today (24th June) at 12pm EST for members, 5pm EST for the general public on kingswildproject.com. Also available in the UK from JP Games.
