Intaglio Red Playing Cards
Luxury deck from Card Art specialists Kings Wild
A series of hand-engraved prints and playing cards. An old-world technique of Intaglio printmaking was used on these to create beautiful artwork.
More than just a deck of playing cards.
Intaglio is a series of prints and playing cards derived from hand-engraved copper printing plates printed in the traditional Intaglio style. It was produced
in a collaboration between Kings Wild Project and Thornwillow Press in New York. Intaglio printing for playing card art has not been used for centuries.
Why has this art style been lost? For this art and printing style to come to life, several factors must exist and come together at the same time. One factor
is the skill of the artist. Intaglio engraving takes years of patience and practice in order to become proficient. Another factor is that the equipment is not readily
available. And lastly, finding someone with the equipment plus the ability to print them at a high archival quality is near impossible. One can see why attempting
a project like this is a monumental task.
For me as an artist, the Intaglio project is a realization of a long dream of mine to create a deck of cards by hand engraving the artwork. Over the years, I have
designed things by hand drawing or digitally mimicking engraving, but this project is the next step for me as an artist. The reasons for my embarking upon this
project are two-fold. One reason is that I have a passion for this beautiful art style. The other reason is that, as an artist, I love the challenge that this offers me to
try to accomplish a project such as this.
The perfect gift for card players, card collectors, magicians or just another way to impress the kids with a deck of cards for family game night!- See more at: http://www.bicyclecards.com/product/bicycle-tragic-royalty-playing-cards/#filter
