Amazing!

I love the movie versions. I love the book. Had to have these, and they are incredible. There is a sheen to them, a subtle extra something. They are very smooth and slick, and the details are fantastic. Amazing cards. I should get more of them, they are perfect.

A lovely tribute to the Alexandre Dumas Classics from Bona Fide Playing Cards

The Count of Monte Cristo Playing Cards honours Dumas' book of the same title, a massive work of classic fiction with many literary themes that include romance, loyalty and betrayal, justice and mercy, revenge and forgiveness. The historical and geographical setting of the book is reflected not only in the tuck box and card backs, but also in the court cards and Jokers, which all include elements drawn from descriptions included in the book. I am especially smitten by the card backs, which feature exquisite ornamentation and detail, and yet focus on simple shapes. Each of the Aces is also worthy of close scrutiny, with oversized pips and details drawn from the novel's themes and concepts. The main characters of the novel all make an appearance on the detailed court cards. The background artwork on each of the court cards has small details that captures the symbolic elements of each character's traits, and this is also done with the Aces. Recommended both for lovers of literature and lovers of fine playing cards!
