Product Description

There are three decks in this campaign. I’ll keep court cards the same for both Limited Editions, but each deck has a unique back design and a premium box. Classic Edition courts will be slightly different as I don’t use foil in this deck. All decks will be printed by Cartamundi in Belgium.

  •  VARIUS Purple Limited
  •  VARIUS Teal Limited
  •  VARIUS Classic

Pattern designs are heritages of different cultures, no matter it’s Moroccan tiles, Roman tiles, Asian windows, or Victorian Age textiles and wall paper, patterns carry a significant memory of time, space, and legacy of a certain place.

Purple Edition

The pattern of the Purple Limited carries memories of the medieval royal court. Nodes that join together elegant lines of swirls coupled with the purple & silver foils, lend a touch of grandeur highness. However, while inspected close up, the pattern seems like a repetition of the symmetrical flowery coat of arms, one will realize the lines are misaligned when observed from far, which creates a sense of oddity. The effect is a borderless back design with some hints of optical elusion viewed from near to far.

Teal Edition

This time, the Teal Limited incorporates smoother linework with a concept of Oriental tiles and stained glass. The color teal signifies water droplets creating ripples through the smooth surface of a pond, with the silver being the shimmer of ripples conjoining. With enough imagination, one could see the back design of the Teal edition as a scene from an afternoon sprinkle on a small pond in the middle of a forest. The foil only makes this daydream easier. However, within the ripples are repeating symmetrical pincers… Could those be the pincers of crabs swimming about in the pond?

Classic Edition

In recent years, floor tiles of villas from the Roman Empire have been unearthed across the UK and Europe. Under heavy soil, the tile floors are surprisingly well-preserved. These have become archeological spectacles and sights that enable researchers to learn more about the history. The design of the Classic  Edition is left without any foil and replaced with a weathered greenish-grey to represent the unmasking of a long lost design that carries the weight of a historical importance. The weathering especially enhances the intent of discovery and exploration.
