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

This deck honours the well-known book by Alexandre Dumas, a historical adventure where the young man d'Artagnan heads for Paris, and becomes friends with the three musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis.

Evidence of the literary themes (courage and honour, ambition and treason) already finds its way onto the tuck box artwork. But the historical/geographical setting of The Three Musketeers is reflected also on the card backs, the court cards, and the Jokers, all of which include elements drawn from descriptions in the novel. The red and yellow card backs have a very plush and elegant look, while the detailed court cards feature the main characters of the book, and have background artwork that captures symbolic elements of each.

The number cards have an elegant and court-like look, with the stylish pips and minimalist design inspired by actual playing cards from the 17th century, matching the book. This gives a sense of historical authenticity, and also makes them very practical for use in playing card games.

It's a superb and fitting tribute to a wonderful writer and a classic novels. In her Alexandre Dumas decks, designer Karen Yan not only has the ability to create ornate designs, but also incorporate thoughtful symbolism and content based on characters and themes drawn from these fiction classics. Recommended both for lovers of literature and lovers of fine playing cards! - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
