The Lepidopterist Playing Cards is a project that was created over the span of about 10 months. As a collector of playing cards myself, I have always wanted to created my own deck. After being commissioned to create one for a company called Theory 11, I decided to try and release one on my own.
The idea for this deck was inspired by two major things: The Madagascar sunset moth and victorian/art nouveau green houses, both of which are so elegant and beautiful.
The deck includes a completely custom tuck box featuring 3 colors of letter pressed foil, embossing, internal print on the box, and high quality paper stocks. It has metallic card backs, custom aces, custom pips and pip formations, and custom colored royal suits — all together creating an incredibly elegant and beautiful deck of cards.
Everything from the deck and tuck box to the product photography were done in house (literally, in my living room lol) by me.
