Inspired by mythology and illustrated by hand by Tom Lane in the United Kingdom, Archangels by theory11 required six months of intricate, pen-and-ink illustration. The resulting artwork represents a new level of elegance in playing card design.
Showcasing the contrast between good and evil, darkness and light, angels and demons - the closer you look at the Archangels back design the more detail you discover with suns, moons, pitchforks and angelic symbolism, all hidden within.
The tuck case features de-bossed ridges and opulent gold foil on every face with original artwork on a stunning Ace of Spades and two non-identical Jokers.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company.
