Kickstarter - Clear Skies: Resistance Playing Cards (printed in Ukraine, in support of Ukraine)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/new......ng-cards

Premium poker-sized playing cards. A deck made in Ukraine, to help Ukraine.

Project ends: Thursday, April 27, 2023

The information below is taken from the project page:

In April 2022, Old Gravity, Noir Arts and Max Playing Cards, teamed up to create the Clear Skies project, to pay tribute to the Ukrainian people, victims of an unfair and disproportionate invasion by the Russian army. More than one year later, governments around the world have not been able to definitively help end this conflict and the struggle is still alive and death continues to strike those who want to live in peace in their own country. For this reason, we decided to keep the flame of hope alive with a new edition: CLEAR SKIES RESISTANCE.

When the world begins to get used to a conflict that seems increasingly distant, there are voices that go on shouting to defend their lives and that of their families. This deck represents that constant struggle, that way of surviving and overcoming adversity every day, a fight for freedom against suffering and destruction that, after more than a year, has not been able to overcome the determination, courage and resistance of the Ukrainian people.

Clear Skies Resistance uses the same designs as the original Freedom and Unity editions, but all artwork is recolored in black and red - colors of Ukrainian resistance.

Bivas Bhattacharjee (Old Gravity) has created a tuck case with a modern design, with an eye to the future, a future of freedom adorned with the symbology of the Ukrainian country. On the front, national flower, the sunflower, now a symbol of resistance, frames emblem, the trident, a symbol of freedom and resistance.

The back is a song to peace, with a dove that takes flight but is being destroyed by the conflict. However, two tree-shaped hands reach out to catch the pieces and rebuild it.

Image


The illustrations by Ritu Bhattacharya (Old Gravity) depict hope with watercolors that mix water with tears for those who suffer. A fight to achieve peace in the midst of massive explosions, indiscriminate destruction and the panic of war.

The golden tree of hope now decorates the back with the red and black of struggle and resilience. The entire deck has been completely customized, and each card is a canvas that brims with emotion.

The unjustified suffering and bloodshed shake those who see in Ukraine a beautiful and peaceful country, thrown into this merciless war. However, the strength, determination, and resilience of the Ukrainian people illuminate with hope the future of the country and its necessary reconstruction.

Each of the suits is inspired and expresses a positive value. The freedom of clubs, the unity of diamonds, the truth of spades, and the love of hearts. These cards are full of best wishes for a people fighting for their freedom.

The Unity set includes two decks (Unity and Freedom) together with a fragment of russian missile or cluster bomb.

This project has been designed exclusively with the Ukrainian people in mind and the restoration of their lives after this terrible invasion.
