At the edge of industry, therein lies Steampunk. Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping. If you’re into the Steampunk genre, this deck from Anne Stokes is really going to blow your socks off. It really is one of the best illustrated we’ve seen and really takes hold of the anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history.
Every card has been customised with the suits having colour coded backgrounds: – Grey for Spades, Rusty Orange for Diamonds, a Green/Brown tone for Clubs and a Darker Green for Hearts. This means that there is a slight colored banding to the deck when seen edge on, which could be useful to magicians.
The Pips have been custom designed and are set against a wavy line design on the pip cards. The Court Cards feature various characters & animals in Steampunk style. The backs feature a depiction of a clockwork mechanism and the Anne Stokes Collection logo in the center (making them one way).
These decks were printed in the USA at the United States Playing Card Company and printed on premium Bicycle stock with a quality finish.
