Presenting four exclusive playing card decks featuring Pirates, Sea Creatures, and Master sets. These century inspired originals are uniquely crafted and present a myriad of fine nautical artistry.

Our Pirate Deck features twelve pirates illustrated as court cards, a custom Ace of Spades, and a joker diptych of a fictional battle between Benjamin Hornigold & Charles Vane.
Every pirate was carefully chosen for this collection, from 1500 - 1844. Adventure, romance, horror, and comedy have bled into the sea. Stories of heroism circulating through the centuries made legends of mere men, and they continue to inspire us today. Enlist this crew, and captivate other collectors by sail and blade.
"The sea drives truth into a man like salt." -Hilaire Belloc
Our Sea Creatures deck features twelve sea beasts illustrated as the court cards, a custom Ace of Spades, and a joker diptych of an iconic battle between a sperm whale & a giant squid. Aesthetically, this deck is meant to invoke the period art of scrimshaw.
-Scrimshaw is the name given to scrollwork, engravings, and carvings done traditionally upon whale bone.
The sea holds countless secrets. Seafarers gave birth to myths, and sea creatures inspired many of them. Creatures chosen for this collection are tied to the lives and legends of the men and women who forged their own adventure upon the sea. Delve to the depths and explore the world beneath in this select illustrated anthology.
"He who lets the sea lull him into a sense of security is in very grave danger." -
Our East & West Masters Decks have fifty four unique illustrations. Both the court cards and the ranked cards hold these unique illustrations. Our West version has a blue design upon the back, and our East version has a red composition upon the back. Ranked cards feature a more minimalist & borderless scheme, easily distinguishing them from the court cards.
