Inspired by the intricacy and style of the Victorian era. Over 18 months in the making, High Victorian playing cards by theory11 have been designed from scratch with a painstakingly relentless attention to detail.
All Aces, Jokers and Court Cards have been illustrated in an incredibly unique style which exudes the ornamentation expected from Victorian era design. There is an unparalleled level of detailing on the court cards which, coupled with no characters/faces, feels somewhat architectural.
The tuck is a work of art in itself with an interior laced with gold foil detailing. The back design however, is where the 18 month design process becomes even more evident. With every glance you'll notice details that you never knew existed - crafted for the inquisitive.
Designed by Joe White in the United Kingdom, who also illustrated the Contraband playing cards. Printed by United States Playing Card Company.
