At the edge of the industry, there is Steampunk. Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping and the cards are finally born!
It was not an easy job. We created a bronze card from scratch in order to print the ink completely covering the surface of the machinery of the Victorian 19th century. The bold print highlights shadows that create the illusion of depth and weight. The windows on the corners of the cards invite you to take a look inside, where you can discover seemingly endless details. The Jokers have been converted into jet turbines of steel. The ace of spades gives a view that overlooks gears of intricate beauty and complexity.
• The poker size cards have the usual Bicycle quality.
• The deck produced by Theory11 in collaboration with the US Playing Card Co. was designed by Alex Beltechi.
