Beautifully illustrated by Kelly Thorn in Brooklyn, New York, and produced with awe-inspiring detail by Art of Play. From their testament to early art deco motifs to their inspired mythology of a sacred trinity, Lady Moon Playing Cards are a marvel to behold.
Sustainably-produced using FSC certified paper and vegetable-based inks on our trademark stock and finish. Suitable for all games requiring a standard deck.
One of the few truly "feminine" card decks out there. If you taught a class on card design, this would be a great example; it has everything you need to know: simple, timeless line art; a single, central idea that's supported in all aspects of the production; unique artwork; distinctive backs; and a simple, consistent, and defined color scheme.
The colors in particular are lovely. The scheme for the court cards is white, beige, salmon pink, blue, and bronze. The colors seem to "rotate", as in, one court will show Lady Moon with bronze skin and white flowers, another court will show her with beige skin and pink flowers, and yet another shows her in white skin with bronze flowers, etc. The pips are also either blue or pink rather than red or black to match the court cards. And the bronze metallic ink shows up well even in bright lights, and matches with the other muted colors better than a gold ink would. In addition, showing the jacks, queens, and kings as maidens, mothers, and matriarchs respectively fits very well with the theme of the Triple Goddess. Finally, one of the aspects of the court cards that first caught my eye was how close to the edges of the cards the artwork extends. There is enough white border to have the classic card look, but it's slim enough to feel simultaneously modern. This has quickly become one of my favorite decks. The only thing I don't like is the seal sticker: the perforations don't help with opening and it doesn't feel sticky enough.
The Lady Moon Playing Cards printed by USPCC is another great astronomical design for any collector.
The art on the Lady Moon Playing Cards by Kelly Thorn are really nicely done. United States Playing Card Company stock is great.
