Mucha Playing Cards by TCC Playing Cards, was successfully funded on Kickstarter by 420 backers, who contributed a total of HKD$355,697 (approximately £39,000). These luxury decks are based on the work of Alphonse Mucha , a well-known Czech Art Nouveau artist.
The campaign included five editions: two Standard Editions (Gold and Silver), both of which were reviewed here, two Holo Editions (Blue and Green), and a Special Edition.
The cards were printed with metallic inks, a common attribute of modern luxury decks, with Mucha's artwork featured in full colour on the face of each card, with the only difference depending on the edition being the back (Gold or Silver).
The box is printed on rough-textured "pearlescent paper," and it is embossed with metallic hot foiling on the outside and inside.
A limited edition of 162 Collector's Wooden Box Sets were also available through the Kickstarter campaign. The display case includes three gilded-edged versions of the deck (see right) in silver and gold. As well as a metal numbered nameplate that corresponds to the number on the seal. "The wooden box is made of the highest quality walnut, and the beautiful wood grain is clearly visible on the box," TCC says.
The pack contains 52 cards plus 2 jokers, see the backs .
