Ripped from the pages of science fiction, the gears are turning, the steam is pumping, and the playing cards were finally born. It wasn't easy. theory11 made the bronze paper from scratch in order to perfectly print the ink that covers its surface in 19th century Victorian machinery. The boldly stamped, debossed elements cast shadows to create a perspective of depth and weight.
An infinite array of detail, designed by Alex Beltechi in Romania and constructed with 12 million 3D polygons. Produced by theory11. Made in the USA at The United States Playing Card Company.
