I managed to get my hands on one of the 500 prototypes of this stunning deck that was produced earlier in 2019, and was very excited by the lovely artwork. Now this extraordinary deck is getting a high quality edition with a larger printing by USPCC with the help of Kickstarter crowdfunding.

The artwork of this stunning deck is by Russian artist Maria Fedoseeva, who began a career in illustration and art after graduating from Moscow State University as a graphic and type designer. This project fared well in a Communication Arts Competition in 2019, making it onto the final shortlist, so it has already been the subject of praise.

The deck is especially noteworthy for being a semi-transformation deck, which means that the pips are cleverly integrated into the artwork on the cards. I'm a huge fan of transformation decks, and this one is especially creative and beautiful!

Two different versions of this deck are being produced, a black "Artist" edition and a blue "Players" edition.

Will Roya from PlayingCardDecks.com is spearheading this project, having successfully produced many playing cards in recent years via crowdfunding, and with extensive experience in the industry.
