The Gnostic deck went out for printing today. This new specialty printed deck will be available for purchase around the end of February 2014.
The Gnostic deck uses imagery hand drawn, painted and designed by Stuart Palm based on imagery from his research into Gnostic and alchemical imagery. The Joker and Ace of spades images have also been individually drawn representing gods from Gnostic mythology.
The Legends Playing Card Co. has proven to create the highest quality playing cards in paper quality, inks and finish. Their first deck The Legends deck, already raised the bar on paper quality, and they have only improved their process since then. All the ink colours in this photo are approximations of the printing colors.
The box will be printed on black mat paper with a gold foil interior. The box inks are all foil pressed metallic gold, rose gold, metallic blue, and white. The two-tone gold/red and rose-gold/black cards are Pantone® spot colored using metallic gold inks. (The blue back card will be a darker blue tone than shown here.)
We look forward to providing this deck for all those with a passion for quality playing cards and an interest in exploring hidden knowledge.
