Boston, MA – On July 21 2015, World-Wide Playing Cards launched a Kickstarter campaign for Leonardo Da Vinci Playing Cards, a commemorative card deck depicting his studies on early anatomy, inventions, plants, and art.
“Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was one of the great creative minds of the Italian Renaissance, hugely influential as an artist and sculptor, but also immensely talented as an engineer, scientist and inventor, the creator says, “Leonardo Da Vinci was evolutionary, and his artistic interpretation is depicted in this beautiful deck.”
World-Wide Playing Cards is a small, dedicated team of individuals striving to create exquisite decks of playing cards from all over the world for enthusiasts and collectors alike. Now, the team has turned to the Kickstarter community for help so they can print a really cool deck of Leonardo Da Vinci Playing Cards displaying original drawings and sketches from over 13,000 pages of notebooks from the “Master”.
For this campaign the team chose drawings from Leonardo Da Vinci’s inventions – weapons of war, flying machines, water systems, and work tools – as well as portraits from his studies of physiognomy, the divinely beautiful and the grotesquely ugly. The deck also features Da Vinci’s drawings of a fetus in utero, the heart and vascular system, sex organs, plants and more!
“The Leonardo Da Vinci Playing Card Deck comes in two Editions – Sepia Tone and Black Charcoal. Our mission is to deliver visionary delight through playing cards,” explains the team, “This is our first Kickstarter Project of many more to come.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one deck of Leonardo Da Vinci Playing Cards in either Black Charcoal or Sepia Tone Edition for $12, two decks (one of each) for $22 and four decks for $40. Backers can also pledge $60 for a half brick of Leonardo Da Vinci Playing Cards (six decks) or $115 for one brick (twelve decks).
Backers can choose to add-on a custom, laser etched, wooden collector’s playing card box to display their Leonardo Da Vinci Sepia Tone and Black Charcoal Edition Decks in sophistication and style.
