ARISTO PLAY CARDS presents STEAMPUNK POKER DECK
Welcome to the World of Steampunk ...
ARISTO STEAMPUNK PLAYING CARDS is a brand-new project that was inspired by XIX century industrial steam-powered machinery & American “Wild West” fantasy world. Steampunk today can be defined in multiple ways, however, aesthetic can lead to some truly breathtaking designs. That’s why we've put together some awesome ideas of Steampunk in art and playing cards, that really epitomize its incredible style.
What the past would look like
if the future had happened sooner ?!
Let us introduce a modern science fiction deck of playing cards with 54 STEAMPUNK themed retro-futuristic drawings!
A real thing of exclusive artwork. We desired to create something a bit more rare, giving Cardists something more meaningful. It's all about mixing old and new: fusing the usability of modern technology with the design aesthetic and philosophy of the Victorian age. Welcome to the mysterious and breathtaking world of Steampunk.
The Court Cards follow the characters in Steampunk outfit with heavy gun, bowler hat, goggle and military-inspired garments that have been anticipated by mainstream high fashion, the Lolita and Aristocrat styles.
The Pips combine elements of technofantasy imagery in mechanical "steampunk" style. Aspects of such dim & dark design emphasise a balance between form and function that fantasized US Wild West-era gadgets.
The ACEs are decorated in clockwork mechanism style with spiral springs and set of gears details. Such graphic design makes every single card unique and interesting thing.
Charismatic & Magnetic
The JOKER card is a presentation of the distinctive "look" of a Plague Doctor. And depicting the most extraordinary part of the costume, The Mask.
But it’s not for the fearsome appearance, the plague doctor might has been considered a Hero and in many ways represents superstition over science.
We look at the mask as some sort of adornment!
It is remarkable!
The Back Side of the cards is a wall piece that represents the concept of the clockwork mechanism. At some point, this is the level of sophistication in technology that once was lost or forgotten. The clockwork holding the various metal pieces together really adds to the Steampunk aesthetic as well making this one an eye catching piece of art.
We are extremely proud of the card back design. It’s exceptionally detailed!
The unique feature of this deck is one-of-a-kind fantasy story style and highly complicated and advanced hand-drawing.
We wanted to add this touch for enthusiasts, collectors, cardists, and of course illusionists.
The goal of this project is to employ appropriate elements (such as iron, wood, and leather) with specifically designed concept and craftsmanship. To present SteamPunk in a completely imaginary realm coexisting with steam-era and other anachronistic technologies.
