Art of Play - Revelation Playing Cards
Inspired by medieval cathedrals, this hand-illustrated deck features gothic details from the catacombs, and beautiful stained glass ornamentations.
In tribute to the hand-drawn blueprints sketched by Medieval builders, Revelation is entirely illustrated with a fine-tipped ink pen and the simplest of universal color palettes: Crimson as blood. Black as iron. White as virgin snow.
As a crisp, contemporary take on the grandeur of bygone cathedrals, Revelation contains all the opulence of the Medieval church and the minimalism of the workmen and monks who lived their whole lives toiling and never saw the fruits of their labors.In addition to an original box, joker, ace of spades, and back design - all inspired by cathedral stained glass - Revelation also features fully custom skeleton court cards, an homage to the silent skeletons of Norwegian royalty still resting in Nidaros catacombs.
