The Shadows deck is a modern deck inspired by historic originals. It will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company. Rare art sheets which form the inspiration for these decks were sourced over months from respected archives including the British Museum, Bibliothèque nationale de France, Archives Department of Seine-Maritime, and Fitzwilliam Museum of Cambridge.
The Shadows of History deck will feature:
An ornate premium quality tuck case, embossed and hot stamped with metallic foil. The cards are entirely custom full colour face cards, printed with ornate metallic ink backs.
The Rouen 1567 deck is the Shadows companion, a carefully crafted recreation of the original historic deck, with full body one way court cards that inspired the playing cards we know and love today. It will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company.
The Rouen 1567 deck will feature:
A premium quality tuck case with embossing. The cards will feature recreations of extremely rare historic cards from 1567. These cards are drawn as closely as possible to the originals, with the addition of indices for playability. The subtle back design is a design based on historic references as the originals had plain backs.
