"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist.'" -Edgar Allan Poe
You are cordially invited to witness Edgar Allan Poe's macabre creations as imagined through the veil of artist David Edgerly's soul. A deck of beautifully rendered playing cards that no collector of the great Edgar Allan Poe can live without. This Limited Edition deck of 54 playing cards is derived from such Poe classics as "The Masque of the Red Death", "Murders on the Rue Morgue", "The Tell-Tale Heart", and "The Black Cat" as well as some of his more obscure works that true Poe fans will immediately recognize such as "Hop-Frog", "The Gold Bug", "The Oval Portrait", and "Berenice".
