MAKERS: Blacksmith Edition are the follow-up to D&D Playing Card Company's original, Green MAKERS and are some of the most intricately designed and luxurious playing cards they have ever produced.
Two years ago marked the release of the original MAKERS and this iteration sees the deck refined and updated including a new gold-foil interior to the tuck case with some minor adjustments to the court cards.
Each tuck is embossed, stamped and laced throughout the exterior and interior with new gold and silver foiling, creating a truly stunning design.
Custom illustrated court cards and abstract pips not only make this deck look special, but feel special. The intricacy of the design, paired with the level of finish is testimony to the "makers" civilisation itself - paying tribute to unparalleled craftsmanship.
Printed by the United States Playing Card Company on a Crushed Stock to give the cards a thin, lightweight feel, straight out of the box.
Twins brothers Dan and Dave Buck are perhaps best known for their contributions to the art of cardistry.

In 2013, off the back of a becoming wildly successful producers of luxury playing cards, they founded Art of Play. Based in the United States, Art of Play curates a collection of wonderfully unique playing cards, puzzles, games and amusements.
Epiphanies await the curious mind.
